DIY Insomnia Milk Bath

 Every facet of this Insomnia Milk Bath is designed with “rest” in mind.

Lavender is well known for it calming properties, and the lactic acid in milk soothes and nourishes skin.

Almond Oil helps protect the surface of the skin but has great value to act as an emollient, skin soother and softener while conditioning the skin and promoting a clear young looking complexion, also helps to relieve muscular aches and pains.

Lavender Essential Oil is one of the common oils found in Spa DIY recipes — for a good reason.  It is a calming, relaxing oil, which combats stress and crisis, while the antiseptic properties help with cold, flu and other ailments. It is excellent for asthma and migraines. Apart from that, it supports female health and on the skin, it has a healing effect, while preventing scarring and balancing the skin.

Marjoram Essential Oil has value when used for asthma and other respiratory complaints and has a calming action on emotions. It helps hyperactive people calm down while boosting circulation.

Benzoin is a resinous oil with a calming and uplifting effect on the mind.  It helps to boost circulation and ease respiratory disorders, while at the same time increasing the skin’s elasticity, calming redness, itchiness, and irritation.

  2. Stir in 1 cup of powdered milk and dried lavender.
  3. Add Epsom Salts, if using.
  4. Add mixture to bath water.
Optional: If you have dried rose petals or even marjoram, by all means, float them on the water of your bath. We've used regular milk in this recipe but doubled it to 2 cups. We've also combined this dried milk recipe with Epsom salts to make a salt and milk bath, which also works well, and extends the recipe.
