Beauty and the Bathtub!

You can always find beauty in your bathtub. I don't know about you but a nice long bath soothes my mind and my body.

I worked a trade show this past weekend and I couldn't wait to get to my bathtub. Trade shows are a lot of fun. Between teaching classes and working my booth, I met people from all over the world and sold a lot of products as well. But my feet and my back seem to have had an out-of-body experience.

My bathtub saved my body and my sanity every night and wow did I feel better. I thought I’d share some of my recipes because each night I wanted a different experience.

Sea Salt and Milk Bath

Of course the first thing you think about when you have tired feet and a sore lower back is to soak in a warm salt water bath. This is exactly what I did ... but ... I added a powdered milk bath to the water to keep the salt from being so drying to my skin. I didn't even scent my bath. Truth be told, I forgot, this is what fatigue will do to you.


½ cup sea salt
¾ cup of powdered milk bath

Note: some people like to add whole milk to their baths, the lactic acid is great for your skin.

Remember your skin is the largest organ of your body and if you're lactose intolerant, whole milk might not be the best choice.

Your skin is absorbing the milk and going into your body just the same as if you were to take it into your mouth.

Lavender and Chamomile Bath

By the end of the second day a relaxing night's sleep was top priority. This is a simple but relaxing bath.

Place 1 teaspoon of dried chamomile flowers

½ teaspoon of dried lavender flowers in a tea bag or handkerchief (tie the ends)
Toss into a tub of warm water, soak and relax.

Note: You can also make a cup of tea with this same recipe. Just put the dried herbs into a tea ball/tea bag and immerse into a cup of hot water.

Herbal Sea Salt Milk Bath

By the third and final night of the trade show, I combined the two recipes together.

½ cup of sea salt
¾ cup of powdered milk bath
1 teaspoon of dried chamomile flowers
½ teaspoon of dried lavender flowers

Mix everything together and if you want you can add ¼ teaspoon of jojoba oil.
These recipes are for one bath so whatever you make up will be used right away.

You can always substitute the lavender and chamomile flowers with lavender and chamomile essential oils.

Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
