Relaxing Milk Bath Tutorial

Relaxing Milk Bath gift box

Last November I had created a post about Homemade Foot Scrubs and it was a hit. It is the time for gift giving again so why not share another gift tutorial!

Today as I was trying to come up with a small gift for my son's teacher... I remembered to look up a Relaxing Milk Bath recipe I came across in one of my Betty Crocker recipe books. This recipe is from Betty Crocker's Celebrate and is very quick and easy to make and packaging could be fun to create too. Its a great gift for family and friends.

What you need & how to do it:
For each gift box mix together 1 cup baking soda, 1 cup salt and 1 cup nonfat dry milk. 
To use, add 1 cup bath mixture to warm bath water. Can be stored in airtight container up to 1 year.

I had a paper mache box in my stash, so I am putting the mix in a plastic bag, inside the box.

After I poured the powder bath mix in the plastic bag, I used a twisty tie to close the plastic bag.

A pretty tag to indicate what the mix is "Relaxing Milk Bath"

Pretty ribbon to tie the tag to the bag

And decorated the lid with pretty paper, creppe rosette, jewelry bits and flowers. W for Whertmann... teacher's last name.

Other options would be to pour mix in vintage glass jars or a pretty decorated brown paper bags (plastic bag inside to seal freshness of powder). Include a small scented candle with the gift and receiver will be able to enjoy a relaxing bath in candlelight at home. 

Nothing says this is just to give as gift, you can probably use some relaxation too during holiday season so go ahead and try it out!!
