Homemade Rose Milk Bath

I’m going to let you in on a secret: homemade beauty gifts are beyond easy. Take this rose milk bath, for example. I feel guilty (well, almost) calling it “homemade” when all it requires is putting a few ingredients together in a bowl. Finding a cute bottle for the packaging is the hardest part!

Homemade Rose Milk Bath

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered milk (full fat if you can find it, otherwise nonfat will work)
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt
  • 1/4 cup (or more) dried rose petals
  • Red food coloring
  • Rose essential oil

Mix the powdered milk and Epsom salts together and add 2-3 drops of red food coloring. Mix until you have a uniform pink color. Then add the rose petals and 5-7 drops of essential oil. If you don’t have rose essential oil you can skip it or use any other soothing essential oil you might have, like lavender or chamomile. Then pour milk bath into a bottle or sachet and make a pretty gift tag.

    I LOVE this recipe! I’ve made it many times, given it as gifts, and it is wonderful! It smells nice and it really makes me sweat! I add citric acid to make it fizz and use rose geranium oil because it is cheaper. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe with us!

    ‘Lisa Johnson’ this is incredibly rude! i tried it myself and this did not happen. I wish you where a kinder human being. Not the whole world revolves around you and you are not always right. I hate you a bit even though i have never met you. You are obviously the problem, as it has never happened to anybody else. Try thinking of other people before you speak

    I just love this milk bath recipe. Fantastic idea. I would only suggest including how much it makes, how much for each bath etc etc.
