Relaxing Milk Tea Bath
The benefit of delicious herbal body soak
Relaxing milk tea bath is a timeless treat that will never grow old! Most mums can relate here – isn’t it lovely to have an hour to yourself every now and then, run a bath at the end of the day and soak in nurturing heaven? A moment to unwind, clear your mind and restore both the skin and your energy. Although I need to remind myself to ‘take time off’, when I do it really helps me to start fresh the next day. So today I’m sharing one of my favourite bath soak recipes – really simple way to bring some slow living into your routine!
All natural ingredients
Natural ingredients have been around for centuries. Although nowdays we have so many commercial and synthetic options, using herbs and natural products is still an amazing option for our body and health. Ingredients such as coconut oil, milk or organic honey help to hydrate, regenerate and tone the skin. They also have antibacterial properties and can encourage healing. The benefits of herbs are timeless, from popular options such as lavender, rose or chamomile to more unusual choices such as parsley, nettle or hibiscus.
The DIY relaxing milk tea bath makes a beautiful present too – simply layer the ingredients of your choice in a glass jar, add a personal note with thoughtful message and treat someone dear! It’s always lovely to remind your loved ones to nurture themselves!
