Buttermilk Bath Recipe

Buttermilk Bath (makes 1/2 cup, enough for 2 baths)

This gentle bath will leave your skin soft and silky. Buttermilk is high in fat and lactic acid, and both help soften and hydrate skin. Make an extra portion of this because people of all ages can benefit from this rich, relaxing natural bath. You may want to package this in a decorative glass jar or a cellophane envelope to give as gifts to friends.

  • 1/4 cup Nonfat Dry Milk 
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch 
  • 1/8 teaspoons essential oil of your choice, depending on your mood.( lavender is relaxing) 

Mix together all the ingredients with a wire whisk and pour into a airtight jar or re-sealable plastic bag. Directions for use: Pour 1/4 of the buttermilk bath powder in tub as you add hot water
