Milk has been used in bathing and skincare for thousands of years. Cleopatra was known for luxurious milk baths and her soft, radiant skin. Milk contains lactic acid which helps to dissolve the proteins that hold together dead skin cells, as well as gently exfoliating and cleansing the skin. This Decadent Milk Bath Bomb makes use of powdered milk which will help you have a long relaxing soak in the bath.
- 2tbsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tbsp citric acid powder
- 1 tbsp corn flour
- 1 tbsp table salt
- 1 tbsp powdered milk
- 2 tbsp olive oil or sunflower oil
- Optional: 3-4 drops of your favorite essential oil
Get a glass bowl. Make sure the bowl and your hands are completely dry. In the bowl, mix the citric acid powder and the bicarbonate of soda together well. Next add the cornflour, table salt and powdered milk. Mix the ingredients together.
Now add the essential oil drops (if you are using them) and olive or sunflower oil and mix all the ingredients together well with a dry spoon.
Take a muffin case (again make sure its completely dry) and place the mixture into it. Press down hard on the mixture with the back of the spoon to compact it into the case. The mixture will now set as a hard bomb as the oil evaporates. Leave it for a minimum of 3-4 hours but preferably overnight before taking the bomb out of the case.
Run a nice warm bath, drop the milky bomb into it and watch it fizz!
The bath bomb can be stored for a month.
