Homemade non toxic rose milk bubble bath

Sharing is caring!

This soothing, naturally fragrant floral milk bath is a soothing way to unwind and add beauty into your day. Learn how to prepare a homemade non toxic rose milk bubble bath and all about it's benefits.

Dear moms,

something we don't talk enough about is the insane work and mental load of motherhood. How the moment we have a second away from caring for our children, we are faced with fifteen tasks we should be working on in any given moment to keep our household running smoothly. Most days, that's the case for me. Once the baby is napping and my daughter is playing, my mind races "what should I do in this moment? Laundry, meal prep, some work?" Even in the moments that I am sitting down to relax, I am usually ordering something the kids need, like a new water bottle because they lost theirs for the 45th time or some new shoes because they've outgrown theirs.

Grab some chocolate, and fill up your tub...

And that's exactly why I decided to make this nontoxic milk rose bubble bath. Because last week, I decided I was going to put my responsibilities aside, unwind, and take a day bath. I wasn't feeling my best last week, and I was so exhausted I knew I needed a little break. So while doing my shopping, I grabbed myself some flowers and some rich and creamy cappuccino chocolate and prepared this homemade non toxic rose milk bubble bath. The ingredients are simple. All you need are some organic rose petals, coconut milk, fractionated or melted coconut oil, unscented castile soap, and essential oils of choice. I'm using my rose and peace and calming by Young Living for the most dreamy bath ever. The rose is the perfect symbol for timeless beauty and perfection. It is often presented as a gift to show deep appreciation. In the case of the red rose, it hopes to convey a message of deep affection. On the other hand, when one wants to create an elegant and formal flower arrangement, the rose is always a great choice. This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 2-675x1024.jpg

Curate your own luxury

There is something so special about laying in a hot bath of rose petals in the day and treating yourself like a queen. I know these days of motherhood aren't always luxurious, but you have the power to write that into your story and take some time for yourself and create a little room for self-care. Make it a weekly ritual. I promise the world won't fall apart like you worry it may if you take an hour off each week. In fact, you may be surprised how much more you get done when you carve out this time for yourself. I hope you enjoy this simple, yet luxurious recipe. If so, you simply have to let me know!

Milk baths are popular in photography, however I actually enjoy to soak in one from time to time. The secret of the radiant and wrinkle-free skin of Cleopatra is historically attributed to milk. The milky color, paired with my bubbles, baking soda, a nourishing oil and petals excite all my senses and get me excited about bath time.

 

What are milk baths good for?

It's likely that you've heard about how milk can do wonders for your face. Milk contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) - an ingredient popular in many modern skin care products, as lactic acid is proven to removed dead skin cells and stimulate new growth. Trusted Source.

Preparing a milk bath can help hydrate skin, exfoliate, sooth irritated skin, and improve hyper pigmentation.

Milk for soothing sunburn

As we approach the warmer months of the year, it's a good idea to be prepared with natural soothing remedies that can help heal the skin's repairing properties. Soaking in plant milk or low fat milk is ideal for sunburn, as high fat milk may insulate the sunburn hindering the loss of heat.

Other flowers for a fragrant floral milk bath

Be sure to use organic flowers. I typically like to use roses that I know are edible and safe for consumption, because then I know they are safe to absorb into my skin in my bath. Visit this post for more information on edible flowers.

oriental lily

Oriental lilies are native to Korea and Japan. They are currently popular as wedding flowers. Oriental lilies have large 6-petal flowers which can be as wide as 8 inches across. The flowers are very fragrant and come in beautiful pastel and vibrant colors that include white, yellow, peach, pink, maroon, and red.

tuberose

Tuberoses are exotic and elegant white flowers that grow on tall and slender stems, typically reaching about 2 ½ feet. The plants are native to Mexico and are related to the yucca. The plants are propagated from corms. Tuberoses usually bloom in late summer. The flowers which come in single and double types are heavily fragrant. Just one stem is guaranteed to fill an entire average size room with fragrance. The best use for tuberose is in the perfume industry, where the flowers supply the middle notes in perfume.

Can milk baths cause yeast infections?

Technically yes. Bathing in milk can contribute to a yeast infection, as milk naturally contains sugar. Anything that changes your PH can cause a yeast infection. Realistically, washing with artificially fragrant soaps and body washes are toxic laundry soaps are much more likely to throw you off than an occasional milk bath. I do not worry about this at all, and have never had this experience.
