White Rose Bath Soak

I remember reading once that Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Egypt, enjoyed taking milk baths. This knowledge came from the health and beauty section of a girl-talk book I owned as a kid. Following that reading, there was then a period of time where I would add a splash of milk to every bath I took (sorry for wasting so much milk, mom and dad!). This bath soak recipe is basically just the grown up version of that.

I wanted this recipe to be the epitome of pampering that a pharaoh, or any divine lady, would deserve. Milk, especially goats milk, can be incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for the skin.  The Epsom salt in this recipe will help soothe sore muscles. I added dried rose petals from a white bouquet of mine because petals always look so delicate and peaceful in the bath.

Yay! Your bath soak is complete! Easy-peasy.
