Monthly Bath Recipe - Spring Wonder Bath

This bath will help rejuvenate your dry skin and give you a new vigor of the first blossoming of Spring!

Basic Starter:
1 1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup Epsom salt
1/8 cup baking soda
2 Tbls. cornstarch

Spring Wonder Bath:
  • 1/2 cup basic starter
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup lavender
Create the base or starter blend.  Use 1/2 cup of starter blended with oatmeal and lavender.  Place in a glass jar and shake to blend.  

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

To Use:
Hanging method: Two ways these can be enjoyed, either hang a sachet on the tap while the hot water is running, making sure the water is running through it. Once the tub is filled, let them float around.

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.

Note: Do not steep in an aluminum pot.
