Co­conut Milk, Vanilla and Pink Salt Bath Soak

Per­fect for hy­drat­ing and soft­en­ing the skin, this co­conut milk, vanilla and rose bath soak is lux­u­ri­ously in­dul­gent and will leave you smelling lovely. Pink Hi­malayan salt in­fuses your bathing water with min­er­als and helps with re­lax­ation.

Makes 2-2½ cups

1 cup pink Hi­malayan

rock salts 1 cup co­conut milk pow­der* 10 drops vanilla es­sen­tial oil ½ cup dried rose petals (op­tional) Put all the in­gre­di­ents into a bowl and toss gen­tly to com­bine. Trans­fer to a dark-coloured glass jar to store. Keep the jar in a cool, dark place, and use within a month or two. To use, add a large hand­ful to your bath and al­low it to dis­solve in the hot water. It’s best to do this right be­fore you hop in the bath as this is when the es­sen­tial oils are most fra­grant. In­hale deeply and en­joy.

*You could also use cow’s milk or al­mond milk pow­der.
