Spring Equinox Lavender Rose Milk Bath Blend

June 19, 2021

This peaceful lavender milk bath helps to calm the body, mind and spirit. I’d recommend soaking in a warm bath for about 20-30 minutes with this magickal blend. Adding milk to your bath water may help to hydrate and nourish your skin as well as improve inflammatory skin conditions. This is also a really great bath to prepare for bedtime. Many people describe lavender as helpful for falling asleep.

I really enjoy making this bath for the Spring Equinox. If you’d like to learn about creating your own ritual bath experience or exploring more DIY bath blend recipes, please take a look at this blog post here.

what you’ll need for this lavender milk bath blend:

  • 2 cups milk (I use plant milk, but pretty much any milk will do – see the choosing milk for your bath section below for more milk options)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3-5 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 3-5 drops rose essential oil
  • 1 cup Epsom salt and/or 1 cup sea salt
  • 1 tsp. carrier oil (whichever you like! I have tried and liked coconut, jojoba, grapeseed, sweet almond, olive, arnica, avocado and pomegranate seed oils)

milk bath how to:

  1. Run your bath water at a temperate that feels comfortable for you.
  2. Pour in the milk of your choice. Tip: If you want a foamy bath, try 1-2 cups of powdered milk instead!
  3. Add any other ingredients that you like (create your own blend or use mine) and enjoy!

choosing milk for your bath:

Coconut Milk

Coconut milk contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties, and supports healthy skin. Like coconut oil, coconut milk has moisturizing and anti-inflammatory effects. Some claim that it may aid in wound healing and collagen turnover.

Oat Milk

Oat milk might help to improve skin conditions such as dry skin and eczema. You could simply use oat milk, or you could also use whole oats with 1-2 cups of any other milk. If you’d like to try using old-fashioned oats in a bath, check out my chamomile oat bath blend. In my experience, an oat bath is really helpful for soothing itchy skin in general (especially chicken pox, poison ivy and bug bites).

Almond Milk

Almond milk can soothe, hydrate and restore your skin. This nut milk is high in fatty oils, leaving the skin extra soft. This is the milk that I usually use in my baths, simply because I always have it in stock at home.

Goat Milk and Buttermilk

Goat milk and Buttermilk both contain lactic acid, which leaves the skin feeling super smooth. Lactic acid helps to exfoliate skin, breaking down dead skin cells. It may also help with firming the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Plus, goat milk is moisturizing, contains anti-bacterial properties (to help with acne) and may also reduce inflammation. If you’ve ever felt how soft your skin feels after using some local goat’s milk soap from the farmer’s market, you’ll love a goat milk bath.

I hope this post was helpful. Enjoy your luxurious lavender milk bath!
