A DIY skin-softening milk bath fit for a queen.
In my home, I go by many names — Princess of the Pooper Scooper, Lordess of the Laundry, Diva of the Dishwasher. But the name I answer to most often is Queen Bee (at least in my mind anyway). When all heck breaks loose and you need to be reminded of who you really are, whip up a few of these tub teas and soak away all those other responsibilities you’ve somehow inherited in your reign. Wrap a trio of tub teas with a pretty bow and they’re perfect for shower gifts, Mother’s Day brunch favors and thank you notes.
Here’s what you need:
- 1/2 cup powered whole milk
- 1/2 cup dried hibiscus or rose petals
- 3 to 5 drops rose essential oil
- heat-sealable tea bags
Here’s what you do:
Mix the milk and essential oil together until evenly distributed. Gently mix in the dried petals. Put a few spoonfuls of the mixture in a large, sealable teabag and seal bags with an iron. Makes about 4 tub teas.
