DIY: Cleopatra's Milk Bath!

Cleopatra's Milk Bath!


Hello Gorgeous! 


Are you feeling tried and worn out?  Is your skin looking dull?  I have the perfect solution for you!  Here is her recipe so you can too  bath like an Egyptian Goddess!  


     2 cups Whole powdered milk
     1/2 cup Cornstarch
     1/4 cup Baking soda
     5 drops of Rose Absolute Oil


Mix in a blender and put into a gorgeous jar of your own!




Cleopatra allegedly enhanced her beauty with fresh milk.  Her secret was that she soaked in baths of fresh milk scented with honey, lavender, or rose petals.  Her servants even used strawberries and raspberries on occasion to scent her bath.  It is said that Cleopatra's boat was so fragrant that Mark Anthony smelled the perfume before he even saw the vessel itself.  


Milk contains lactic acid, and alpha hydroxy acid, which is a gentle, natural exfoliant. An average person grows a new layer of skin approximately every two to four weeks, shedding the old cells.  The lactic acid dissolves the glue that holds the dead skin cells to the body.  A 20 minute soak allows the dead cells to be easily washed away.  Of course you have to use a wash cloth too.  The milk also acts as a moisturizer, likewise helping to create lustrous, silky soft skin.  






Don't forget to add some raw honey to the running bath water and some freshly picked rose petals too!
