Fall Splendor Bath Soak - Bath Blend of the Month

Time again for the month bath blend.  This time I chose something that uses a mix of herbs with a fall scent.  These make a great refreshing bath as well as having wonderful germ fighting properties.

Fall Splendor Bath Soak

1 1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup Epsom salt
1/8 cup baking soda
2 Tbls. cornstarch
1/2 cup thyme
1/2 cup  sage
1/2 cup mint
1/2 cup rosemary
1/2 cup bay leaves

Blend ingredients together and keep in a tightly sealed glass jar.  Use ¼ to ½ cup of blend in a muslin bag or cheese cloth pouch. 

To use: 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 use 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.
