Inspired by Chef Lisa Hayward's excellent cinnamon-oatmeal milk bath, I created this holiday spice version specifically for xmas gift giving. I bought all ingredients at a bulk food store.

This made a wonderful milk-spice bath. I made this this afternoon using cornflour as a substitute for cornstarch and dried thyme as a substitute for dried rosemary. Also, since I didn't have nutmeg on hand, I used extra cinnamon as a substitute. For the milk part of this, I used my favourite - Nido powdered milk. I just made 4 batches of this for gift giving after having used 1 batch on my dear sweet mom and some for myself, too. Both of us love it to the core! I added some of this to some hot water in a tub and mom dipped her feet in it. She said her feet felt soft as a lacy feather! As for me, I love the idea of having orange rind in this, in particular. The thought of having ginger in this, did worry me a bit, because different people's skin would react differently to ginger, especially sensitive skin, so I was a little worried about that. However, after using it on my own skin which is sensitive, I can assure anybody with sensitive skin to go ahead and enjoy this beautiful creation! My skin feels so silky soft, smooth and "pampered"! Infinite Thank You's To You, Dearest Auntie Lennie! I do miss you soooo much and I wish you would surprise all of us by coming back. Please hurry back! Missing you way too much now!!{{{{{{{{{Hugs to you}}}}}}}}}}, Charishma
