This decadent recipe is fun to make and good for your skin and your soul. It also makes an awesome gift for someone special!
1 cup cocoa
1 cup powdered milk
1 cup epsom salts
1 cup baking soda
10-20 drops essential oil of your choice
(Use about 1/2 cup finished product per bath)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and store in an air tight container like a mason jar. I have cocoa essential oil and it smells heavenly but you can use peppermint, lavender, orange or even vanilla. This recipe is a lot of fun to play with.
The cocoa is soothing to the nerves and has great anti inflammatory properties as well as being chock full of nutrients. The powdered milk has lactic acid in it which will gently exfoliate the skin. The epsom salts and baking soda both help balance the skin while the essential oils impart their own magic.
Try it and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
