Soothing Bath Sachet - Monthly Bath Recipe

Soothing Bath Sachet
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered milk
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt
  • 1/8 cup baking soda
  • 2 Tbls. cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup Oatmeal 
  • 1/4 cup Rosemary 
  • 1/4 cup Chamomile 

Blend all ingredients together, then divided into muslin bags or other pouches.

Make drawstring pouches out of cheesecloth, organza or muslin, enough to hold anywhere from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of the mixture. Tie them tightly shut so the loose ingredients won’t float out. After use the contents can be emptied, the pouches rinsed out then washed to be refilled and reused.

TO USE: Two ways these can be enjoyed, either hang them on the tap while the hot water is running, making sure the water is running through them. Once the tub is filled, let them float around. or the Infusion Method: Boil a quart of water, turn off heat, add pouch, cover, then steep (for at least 20 minutes for best results). Add the piping hot infusion (and the bag) to a full tub, being careful while pouring to avoid burning yourself.
