It keeps getting soo cold in the mornings and nights.. and I thought I would be excited about this. But usually this just means being cold while day dreaming of soaking my feet in hot water (a habit I picked up from one of my best friends, Bree), taking a hot bath, laying in my bed with my heater blanket on high, turning my seat heater on in the car, blasting the heater, etc.
Luckily I have a cruise with my soon to be husband in 2 months. And we just found out we are going to San Diego this weekend to visit David’s sisters and their cute families.. so beyond excited, its stupid. Can’t wait to soak up some sun.. I am already missin it. 🙂 🙂
But back to baths… like (most) girls I love my baths. I take baths quite seriously too… like you see in the movies. I do the whole turn off all the lights. light the candles. use essential oils. bath salts. floating flowers. the whole nine yards.
I am sure any guy would think that hysterical. But if you only tried it you would love it too.
Since winter is coming I can already feel my skin getting so dry…. it makes me sick. I hate dry skin. And I have this problem where my legs and arms get itchy when they are dry. SO I decided to take a milk bath this morning. I had heard about it and seen it in brochures for spas and all that jazz but never knew the purpose behind it… it can be good for a number of things but one of them is dry skin. It is super moisturizing and your skin feels amazing after!! Seriously you have to try it!
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup corn starch
1/4 cup baking soda
any essential oil mixture
*I doubled the recipe
1. Combine ingredients in a dark bowl (it says to do a dark jar but since I doubled it, it wouldn’t fit, a dark bowl worked fine) and wisk ingredients together until there are no bumps. (if you used a jar it says to put cap on and shake until bumps are gone)
2. Add essential oils. I used about 15 drops total (I did 10 drops lavender 5 drops lemon).. you can do more or less, it wont make a difference! If you used a bowl you will now cover it in foil. If you used a jar, keep the lid on.
3. Put in a cool dark place for roughly 24 hours.
4. Fill up bath about 3/4 of the way you usually do and add mixture!
Seriously, this was amazing. Usually when I get out of the bath my skin feels really tight and dry, but it feels silky and smooth after this!
