Items you will need:
- 1 1/2 cups magnesium salt flakes
- 1 1/2 cups of powdered milk (you can also use coconut powdered milk if you prefer)
- 1/2 cup bi-carb soda
- 30 drops of essential oil (we suggest lavender oil but you could use any relaxing blend)
- 4 tablespoons of dried lavender
- Dehydrated citrus fruits (follow our DIY here to make your own dehydrated fruits)
- Large bowl
- Airtight container to store your milk bath salts
1. In a bowl, combine the magnesium flakes, powdered milk and bi-carb soda using a fork.
2. Add 30 drops of essential oil and stir again. We suggest adding 15 drops, stirring, and then adding another 15 to get a more even distribution. Alternatively, you could dilute the essential oil with 2 tablespoons of a carrier oil, such as sweet almond oil.
3. Add your dried lavender and dehydrated citrus fruits and gently stir with a fork one last time. It’s easy to make your own dehydrated citrus fruits in the oven, just follow this tutorial where we show how to make dehydrated orange slices.
4. Transfer your milk bath salts into an airtight container.
This DIY is so simple and makes for a fabulous gift — simply add ribbon and perhaps a dried citrus wheel to decorate!
