The holiday season is finally here. This layered milk bath makes a perfect gift for friends or loved ones as well as a great addition to your own self-care routine. We combine hydrating powdered goat milk (or powdered coconut milk, for a vegan
alternative) with mineral-rich Dead Sea salt, dried herbs and rose petals, hydrating Jojoba Oil
and a variety of Paradise Springs Essential Oils
for a cute, simple-to-assemble DIY gift that'll soothe and hydrate skin all winter long. Print our labels
to add to the lids of your standard mason jar for a customized gift.
Each of these mason jars can be uniquely tailored to suit you or your loved ones' self-care routines. Try pairing dried lavender, rose petals or chamomile with calming Lavender Oil
and Sweet Orange Oil
for those who need some relaxation and tranquility while brightening skin. Looking for an energetic boost? Try combining dried tea tree leaves or peppermint with a few drops of Peppermint Oil
for an invigorating, energizing blend. The possibilities are endless. We'll be building a calming layered mason jar in this blog- perfect for some rest and relaxation after the holidays!
What You'll Need
(makes one 16oz milk bath)
- Dried rose petals
- Calming herbs, such as chamomile, lavender or valerian
- Energizing herbs, such as peppermint, tea tree or eucalyptus
Combine Dead Sea salt with Jojoba Oil and other essential oils in a mixing bowl and mix until combined.
In a separate bowl, add your powdered goat milk and any other dried herbs (such as chamomile) and mix until combined.
Separate your other ingredients, such as rose petals and lavender buds, and set aside.
To assemble, start by scooping 1/2 cup of the powdered milk mixture into your mason jar to make a flat, even layer. Next, layer 1/2 cup Dead Sea salt followed by any optional add-ins, such as rose petals or valerian.
Repeat steps until jar is full. Seal tightly with lid, applying the printed label with double-sided tape if using.
Use & Storage
To use, simply pour the entire contents of the jar into your bath for a mineral-packed, hydrating soak. Make sure to use a strainer to collect any petals or herbs from the drain.
This layered jar can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to three months until ready to use. Once opened, use entire contents. Enjoy!
