Rose Petal Recipes: Rose Petal Milk Bath Soak

Why take a plain old bath, when with just a few ingredients, you can take your bath from boring to spa-worthy. This do-it-yourself rose petal milk bath recipe is both easy to make and highlights one of our most prized herbs: rose. While rose’s intoxicating smell can induce a sense of peace and relaxation, much like a day at the spa, we can’t overlook its amazing skin soothing properties.

This recipe includes some of the most soothing skincare ingredients: rose, oats and milk, making it perfect for sensitive skin. The antioxidant-rich rose petals can both tone and protect your skin, while the milk provides those skin nourishing fats, known as lipids, which are perfect for keeping the skin healthy and hydrated. Ground oats, much like rose petals, can help soothe and calm down irritated, red skin. So do yourself a favor and try this amazing rose petal milk bath soak for a perfect home spa day. We promise you, it will leave your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed.
