New Year's Baby Bath
(makes 4 oz, enough for 2 baths)
This gentle bath will leave baby's skin soft and silky. Milk is rich in fat and lactic acid, and both help soften and hydrate skin. Prepare an extra portion of this for yourself because people of all ages can benefit from this rich, relaxing natural bath. You may want to package this in an envelope to give as gifts or a pretty bottle with a cork.

1/4 Cup Nonfat Dry Milk
1/4 Cup Whole Dry Buttermilk
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
1 drop Orange Oil ( optional )

Mix together all the ingredients and pour into a clean container or resealable plastic bag.

To Use: Pour 1/4 cup of the bath powder into a full tub or 1 Tablespoon into a small baby bathtub.

Claudia's Milk Bath
1 Cup Powdered Milk
.5 Cups Oatmeal
1 Cup Baking Soda
2 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar
4 Tablespoons Corn Starch
Handcrafted Soap

In a food processor, grind chunked handcrafted soap and oatmeal until grainy. Add powdered milk, baking soda, cream of tartar and corn starch.

Scent with fragrance / essential oils as desired, process until it's powdery. It really is a nice product when you package it attractively, feels wonderful in the bath and if you scent it heavily (which I seem to do to everything ) the whole bathroom smells heavenly all day.

Dawna's Milk Bath
1 cup non fat powder milk
1/2 cup powdered soap
1/4 cup baking soda
4 tsps cornstarch
15 mls of E.O of your choice.

If you make your own soap this is great.
Grate soap in a food processor or with a cheeze greater. Put into blender an blend till fine.
Then add the rest of the ingredients together until blended . I find during the cold season ,some cold and flu blend essential oil is great for reducing fever and great for colds

Bath Salt/Milk Bath Idea

You can make peppermint bath salts, divide in half, color one red, get some clear jars and make a 'candycane' stripe bath salt! For kids, how about a chocolate-milk bath? Just put a couple of Tablespoons powdered coca in a couple of cups powdered milk!
