DIY Bath Tub Smoothie Mix

1. 4.
Over the years, I've experimented with all sorts of bath and skin care recipes. I've written a lot of them down but others are one time fleeting pleasures never to be duplicated.

Browsing old Skin care Journals...I was glad I did write this one down. So today's selection from the Recipe Jukebox is called Bath Tub Smoothie Mix because it has milk. It provides soothing, moisturizing, water softening benefits to your bath and helps sore muscles.

Savon Shoppe Bath Tub
Smoothie Mix
  • 6 oz. Mineral Salts (or Epsom Salts)
  • 2 oz. Powdered Milk
  • 2 oz. Baking soda
  • 1 T. Grapeseed Oil
  • 1T. Glycerin
  • 3 drops Patchouli Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
  • 3 drops Clary Sage Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Jasmine Essential or Fragrance Oil

In a small bowl (reserved for bath product mixing) mix the dry ingredients: salts, milk, and baking soda. Mix until well blended. Next mix the liquid ingredients: Grapeseed oil, Glycerin, and essential oils. Blend well. Now mix both ingredients until well blended.

Add to nice steaming bath while the water is running and smell the aroma fill your space. Slip yourself in and lay back and relax.

Grapeseed Oil is light, odorless and derived from the seeds of Italian grapes. Its emollient properties impart a rich, silky luster that can sooth away dryness and irritation. Grapeseed oil is suitable for all skin types and has mild astringent properties that prevent it from clogging pores or causing breakouts.
Did you know that milk can be used to clean and soften your skin and cure dust allergies and dry skin and other irritations?
Glycerin, commonly found in skin care products because it attracts water and helps skin look better.
Epsom salt relaxes your body and muscles, eliminates toxins from the body and reduces the swellings of sprains. You can rub the Epsom salt directly on the skin to make it smooth and silky. Then rinse thoroughly.
Essential oils are chosen for their therapeutic benefit...(these have calming effect and relax sore muscles).
