Kara’s Country


Living my dream in the country one burnt dinner, screaming child, dirty dog, stinky chicken, snow covered garden at a time! Learning is always more fun with laughter. I'm a mommy of three, a wife to one very patient man, a cookie monster, lover of good literature and an occassional trashy magazine.

DIY Milk Bath

Jan 7, 2017

This past Christmas I was inspired to make several handmade presents for our friends and family. Little Audrey (2 ½ yrs) is always at my heels wanting to help so I tried to find ides where she could also participate. Thanks to Pinterest I was not short on ideas/options!

Homemade Process

  • 1 ½ cups Powdered Milk (I bought mine from the bulk bin at my local grocery store)
  • ½ cup baking soda
  • ½ cornstarch
  • ½ cup Epsom salt (you can use regular or scented)
  • Several (10-15) drops of essential oil such as Lavender or Eucalyptus

Directions: Combined all the ingredients, in order, together and then add to your mason jar, glass milk jar, etc. I found these cute jars on Amazon and they came with the lids.

My handy husband found me the font for the labels, it’s call Underwood.

Let me know what you like to add to your milk bath!
