Monthly Bath Blend - Honey Basil Bath

June is a great time to harvest the tips of basil plants.  Each snip you take from the basil this early in the season will make the plant that much bushier later in the summer. Save those tips and dry them on a paper towel.  Once dry, in a day or two, craft this great bath that will repair and moisturize dry skin.

purple basil is great in this!

Honey Basil Bath

1 1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup Epsom salt
1/8 cup baking soda
2 Tbls. cornstarch
1/2 cup rosemary, dried
1/2 cup basil, dried and crumbled
1 cup oatmeal

Combine ingredients and store in a jar with a tight fitting lid.

Add 1/2 cup of honey to tub while water is running.  Place ½ cup of herb mixture in a cloth or lace bag and hang under the tap while the tub continues to fill.
