If you love a hot bath on a cool night, this bath milk powder is just the thing. Skin softening, moisturizing, and lightly cocoa-scented, it makes a lovely gift and a lovely thing to have in your bathroom for those days where you’re ready for a hot bath and bed by 4PM.
The base of this powder is a blend of fragrant cocoa butter (USA / Canada) and dried milk powder. Cow’s milk powder works great, but if you happen to have powdered coconut milk (USA / Canada) or goats milk powder, those will work brilliantly as well.
Cocoa butter is brittle at room temperature so you can blend it into a sort of powder, but melts around 34°C, meaning it melts into hot bathwater beautifully. Do watch for oil slicks afterwards, though—you’re too young to fall in the tub 😉
To really amp up the luxury factor of this powder, add a cup or two of Epsom salts to your bath water along with the cocoa-y goodness to soothe sore muscles 🙂
Cocoa Butter Bath Milk Powder
Combine the cocoa butter (USA / Canada), silk powder, and 2 tbsp of the milk powder in your DIY coffee grinder and blitz up until the cocoa butter (USA / Canada) is pretty fine. You’ll find that the mixture is a touch pasty.
Scrape out the powdery paste into a bowl and add the rest of the milk powder, stirring to break up any clumps and get everything to a powdery state instead of a clumpy whatsit.
