This luxurious delight of a bath is an updated version of one Cleopatra might have used to keep her skin soft and smooth. (Here is a hint: The lactic acid in the main ingredient has amazing skin-softening properties. Cleopatra swore by asses’ milk. This formula calls for an easier-to-find substitute!)
The bath has the added benefit of helping to remove toxins, and being very calming and relaxing, too. Read the simple but heavenly formula here:
1 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons Epsom salts
1/2 tablespoon olive oil or canola oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
1. Combine ingredients and pour into the stream of warm water as your tub fills.
2. Immerse yourself and soak for 15 minutes or so.
