Rose Milk Bath Tea Recipe for Dry Skin

How to make a rose milk bath tea recipe.  This easy DIY bath recipe makes a great gift or keep it for yourself.  It helps soothe and moisturize dry skin, and the essential oil blend is relaxing. 

It's the end of January in Ohio, and winter still hasn't hit hard.  It's coming.  I know it is.

Even without the freezing temperatures, my skin is still having fits.  It's dry, itchy, and dull already.  I'm using lotions and oils, but I wanted something to soak in to bring more relief.



Since Valentine's Day is close, I decided to make a rose milk bath tea recipe.  Roses are excellent for dry skin.  Each ingredient in this easy recipe was selected for its benefits for dry skin and even eczema.


I used an essential oil blend called Tranquility.  It's calming and has a wonderful scent for this tub tea recipe.

Rose Milk Bath Tea Recipe


I was originally going to make a plain milk bath, but I decided to make a tea.  This is basically the same thing, but the rose petals won't cause any septic or drain issues.

If you want to make this as a milk bath, grind the rose petals and know that they can clog drains and may cause septic issues.

Powdered Coconut Milk or Powdered Milk


I used powdered coconut milk for my rose milk bath tea recipe, but you can use powdered milk.  Powdered coconut milk is a great vegan alternative.

Powdered coconut milk is a great additive if you have dry skin or eczema.  Coconut milk is packed with several B vitamins, vitamin C, and vitamin E.


It's soothing to the skin and an excellent moisturizer.  It has fatty acids that help treat dry or irritated skin.  It also helps kill bacteria and germs on the surface of the skin.

Powdered milk is excellent for your skin.  I recommend using a full fat powdered milk, but you can use a low fat powdered milk if that's all you have or can find.

Powdered milk helps promote radiant skin by cleansing the skin.  The lactic acid in it smooths the skin and lightens dark spots.  It hydrates and boost collagen production to reduce the signs of aging.

Oatmeal


Oatmeal helps reduce itching and reduce inflammation.  If you have dry skin or eczema, it can help calm the skin and reducing itching.

The saponins in oatmeal help cleanse the skin and clean out pores.  If you have body acne, it can help reduce it.

I use regular oatmeal and use my Ninja to grind it into a powder.  You can also buy colloidal oatmeal to use in recipes like this one.

Pink Himalayan Salt


Normally I use Epsom salts or sea salt, but I wanted to make this rose milk bath tea recipe with pink Himalayan salt for Valentine's Day.  You can substitute Epsom salts, magnesium flakes, or sea salt for the Himalayan salt.

Pink Himalayan salt has some magnesium in it, so it may be absorbed into the skin to boost magnesium levels and help you feel more relaxed.

It's antibacterial since it's a salt.  If you have eczema or have been scratching dry skin, it can help reduce a secondary infection.

Rose Petals


I used rose petals since it's close to Valentine's Day, but they are also wonderful for your skin.  I'll use this through the winter and probably make more for next winter.

Rose petals are high in vitamin C to promote anti-aging.  Roses can help reduce inflammation, balance oil production, and tone the skin.

You can get dried rose petals on Amazon or on Etsy.  You can even dry your own to use in this recipe.  Just make sure that they are completely dry before sealing them in the jar or they could get moldy.

I also used these dried rose petals in my wax air fresheners.

Tranquility Essential Oil Blend


I used the Simply Earth Tranquility essential oil blend.  It's a blend of lemon, patchouli, sweet orange, amyris, and ylang ylang.


It smells wonderful.  It's said to help reduce anxiety and promote calmness.

I used this essential oil blend because it's great for any time of the day.  It's not a night time blend, so you can use it in the morning, too.

I also used the Tranquility blend in a lavender milk bath recipe.

Jars and Tea Bags


I picked up these cute plastic jars at Dollar Tree.  You can also find them at Consumer Crafts or Amazon.

I normally use glass, but I don't want glass in the bathroom.  I'm clumsy, and I'd rather avoid a mess.



I used a muslin tea bag because I can reuse it.  You can also use empty tea bags.  You'll need to sew them or fold them over and staple them.


Ingredients




Directions


Step #1

 Combine the powdered milk or powdered coconut milk in a bowl.  Stir well.



 Step #2


Add the essential oils.  I used 15 drops of Tranquility and it was plenty strong enough.  Stir well.



Step #3


Spoon into a jar.



Step #4 


To use as a tea, spoon two to four tablespoons into a tea bag or muslin bag.  Toss in the tub while it's filling.  

After your bath, empty the muslin bag, rinse well, let dry.  If you use a tea bag, dispose of it and the rose milk bath tea mixture.

This made about 1.5 8-ounce jars.  I would double it to make three jars if you are giving it as a gift.
