What woman doesn't love a luxurious and soothing bath? Hello milk baths! A few years ago the milk bath trend in boudoir photography EXPLODED. People began doing all kinds of crazy shoots in the bath tub with that milky white substance. Well, it looks like the trend is hear to stay. These shoots are particularly popular with pregnant and nursing women.
Making a milk bath is not as simple as it may seem. There are so many different products you can use many of which involve some sort of powdered milk, which can get very clumpy if not handled properly. But don't worry we have you covered! Here is how to make the most luxurious milk bath there every was!
2 cups of powdered milk (cow, goat, or butttermilk)
1 cup Herbivore coconut milk bath soak (optional to moisturize)
1 cup of epsom salt (optional)
1 cup of sea salt (optional)
1/2 cup of baking soda (optional)
1 cup of Natrasorb Bath (optional)
1/2 ounce of lavender essential oil or any other fragrance you prefer (optional)
Fill the tub half way and make sure the water temperature does not exceed 100 degrees. As the tub is filling, us the mesh strainer to slowly add in the milk powder. If you see the powder begin to clump, use the whisk to seperate. Continue until the water turns the milky shade of your choosing. Now is the fun part! Feel free to make this bath unique by adding in coconut milk bath, epsom salt, and the scent of your choice!
