Melt into an Unforgettable Warming Spiced Chai Latte DIY Bath Soak

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 Rich Spiced Chai Latte DIY Bath Soak

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:

Combine Epsom salt, powdered milk, and arrowroot powder in a medium mixing bowl. For a vegan milk bath, use coconut powdered milk. Blend with a fork to break up clumps in powdered milk. Pour the milk mixture into an apothecary jar.

Next, scoop pink Himalayan salt into the mixing bowl. Add each drop of essential oil and blend to combine oils thoroughly. Pour infused salts over the 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 it to the jar. Grab it and more printables, checklists, and reference guides in the Simple Living Library.
