Melt Your Cares Away
Take a cue from none other than the queen of relaxation – Cleopatra herself. Who soaked in legendary milk baths with essential oils to relax, soften, and moisturize the skin. This recipe for a rich spiced chai latte DIY bath soak is no different. Let warming clove, cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom essential oils melt your cares away! (Note: cinnamon is considered a hot oil. So leave it out or use it sparingly if it irritates your skin.)
Ingredients for a Chai Latte DIY Bath Soak:
1/4 cup Epsom salt
2 1/8 cups powdered milk
1/4 cup arrowroot powder or cornstarch
3 drops cardamom essential oil
2 drops ginger essential oil
2 drops cinnamon essential oil
3 drops clove essential oil
1/4 cup pink Himalayan salt, coarse
2 tablespoons chai tea, loose leaf
1 airtight apothecary jar
How to Make Spiced Chai Latte DIY Bath Soak:
In a medium mixing bowl combine Epsom salt, powdered milk, and arrowroot powder. For a vegan milk bath use coconut powdered milk. Blend with a fork to break up clumps in powdered milk. Pour milk mixture into an apothecary jar.
Next, scoop pink Himalayan salt into the mixing bowl. Add each drop of essential oil and blend to thoroughly combine oils. Pour infused salts over milk mixture in the apothecary jar. Last, sprinkle loose leaf chai tea on top of infused salts. Place the lid on the apothecary jar and store it. Use this DIY bath soak within six months.
Print a milk bath apothecary from the Life-n-Reflection Resource Library and adhere to the jar. Grab it and more printables, checklists, and reference guides in the Simple Living Library.
How to Use Spiced Chai Latte DIY Bath Soak:
Scoop 1/4 cup of milk bath into running bathwater. Push the warm water between your fingers to unfold into the water and release essential oils. Step and soak to release muscle tension and hydrate skin.
