Homemade Relaxing Chamomile Milk Bath


 I hadn't taken a relaxing bath in a really long time.  I decided since my muscles were really sore and my skin was really dry, it was time for a little "me time".  

I wanted to use epsom salts for my sore muscles and thought that chamomile would be soothing.  

For this bath soak, I used brewed chamomile tea.  I don't have any chamomile flowers or chamomile essential oil.

I brewed 4 cups of chamomile tea.
While the tea was steeping, I placed 1/2 cup of dry milk powder into a jar.  
I added 2 Tbsp. of Baking Soda.
Then I added 1/2 cup of Epsom salts.
For this bath, I also used sweet almond oil and lavender essential oil.

When I had all of my ingredients together, I simply started my bath and poured the dry ingredients under the water spout.
Then, I poured my tea into the bath water.
At that time I also added 2 Tbsp. of sweet almond oil and 10 drops of lavender essential oil.
The tea made the water yellow.

It was luxurious.  I wish I would have made the water warmer, but at least the water not being as hot as I like it kept my skin more moisturized.  I like a bath so hot it dries me completely out. . . .. which would have been slightly counter-productive if my goal was to moisturize my skin.  While I was relaxing in my bath, I also had my homemade banana smoothie face mask on.  It only took a half hour of my day, but those 30 minutes were so worth it!

All together the ingredients I used were:

4 chamomile tea bags
4 cups water to brew tea
1/2 cup dry milk powder
2 Tbsp. baking soda
1/2 cup Epsom salts
2 Tbsp. sweet almond oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
