Although it is made with food products, I would call this a non-food recipe. If you can bear to part with it, this also makes a wonderful home-made gift idea.

Superb! I have made milk bath for a couple of years now and these are the same ingredients I use BUT I never thought to add spices -- thank you for such a wonderful idea. I tried this recipe, doubling the cinnamon though, and it was great. Milk bath is such a skin softenener; I urge everyone to try this!

I gave myself a few hours off and had a chocolate and cinnamon spa day. I used the Chocolate Bliss Moisture Mask (Recipe #206789) and Gingerbread Body Scrub (Recipe #197416) along with this milk bath. As mentioned before there is a little bit of mess to this, and it certainly shows you which spots you missed during cleaning! But a splash of water, or turning on the shower for a few seconds takes care of all that. This made an awesome bath, I was worried about getting a itchy rash, which is usual for me. But nothing of the sort happened which makes me so very happy. There is one thing I need to add though, always do a light all over exfoliation, that way you have clean living skin soaking up all the good stuff, otherwise your just soaking the dry dead skin layer.

Great stuff ! I have used this twice now and love it. I am not sure if it is my sensitive skin or our water here but the first time I used the 2 Tablespoons and it was nice but tonight I used 3 Tablespoons and my skin feels great. It really is a nice skin softener and the cinnamon was a nice touch for those of us who cannot use most other scented stuff. Thanks for posting this and it will make a great gift too.
