I'm Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh growing herbs is a passion I've had for more than 20 years now. The Backyard Patch is my own herb business started in 1995. I specialize in fresh, amazing, organic blended herbs. Those for cooking, tea and bath -- and they are all home-grown and hand-blended. In the last 20 years I have gained a knowledge of herbs and their flavors that I share here.
Milk, especially powdered milk, is great for soothing the skin and making it silky soft. Coupled with cornstarch and you have a rich bath that will cool down the winter burn and aid skin healing. Add to that the lovely seasonal scent of cinnamon and you have a real treat.
Combine all the ingredients together in a tightly lidded jar and shake vigorously. Once they are combined scoop a couple of tablespoons into a warm bath and enjoy the scent. If you want to avoid a brown ring (cinnamon does not dissolve) place the mixture in a coffee filter and bind with a rubber band before placing in the tub.
