Take a honey and milk bath for softer, more attractive skin. Milk improves your skin's structure and texture while honey softens your skin. Include Epsom salts, which act as a natural healing agent, detoxifier and skin emollient. Soaking in Epsom salt also reduces stress. Add baking soda to your bath to smooth your skin and neutralize damaging acids.

Things You'll Need

  • Bathtub
  • 2 cups Epsom salt
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • Herbs or flowers
  • Measuring cups
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • Large heat-proof measuring cup
  • Microwave
  • Candles

Set the Epsom salt, baking soda, herbs or flowers, and measuring cups in your bathroom.

Pour the milk into the heat-proof measuring cup. Heat the milk in the microwave for about 2 minutes on high. Drizzle in the honey, stirring until combined. Carry the milk and honey mixture into the bathroom.

Run your bath water. Add your dry ingredients. Pour in the milk and honey mixture. Toss in whole herbs, such as rosemary, sage, mint or thyme, or fragrant flower petals like rose, lavender or lilac.

Light the candles, dim the lights and relax until the water gets cold.
