Short little blog that I wanted to make regarding one of my favorite things in the world – milk baths!!
A milk bath is exactly what it sounds like, a bath in milk. Now, it’s of course not a bath entirely in milk, that would be expensive. It is a warm bath with milk in lieu of bubbles or salts. I usually will take one if I’ve got milk that’s about to go bad, or that needs used up. You want to take a bath in whole milk as it’s got the most milk fats to benefit your skin. I usually add about 1/4 to 1/2 gallon (give or take) to my bath water. You really can add as much or as little as you’d like.
You do not need to rinse your skin with plain water before exiting you bath, and when you get out, you skin will feel silky and smooth. I like to take a milk bath if my skin is particularly dry or if I have sunburn or another ailment (bug bites, poison, etc.). I have also noticed that milk has helped with dry scalp and damaged hair. Really, it’s just another reason to pour a glass of wine and have a bath.
