A few days ago I posted about our wild rose MILK BATH. Made with just powdered goats milk, epsom salt, and rose essential oil… it’s an incredibly luxurious, hydrating, pampering, moisturizing, and wonderful self-care product!
Today, I wanted to talk about the ingredients. And what else you might be able to DIY around the house, with these items.
POWDERED GOATS MILK
For me, I only use this to make our rose milk bath and lavender tub tea. But I found another blog post that lists out lots of other ways to use the powdered milk:
1 sweetened condensed milk
2 evaporated milk
3 whipped topping
4 coffee creamer
6 oatmeal packets
7 hot chocolate
10 cottage cheese
11 milk bath
12 face mask and soothing skin treatment
For all the details, links, and recipes- One Good Thing’s blog titled “12 Surprising Things You Can Make From Powdered Milk” is here.
This is a versatile item! It can be used to ease health problems, like soreness and stress. It can promote sleep. It’s great for muscle recovery and a detox. It can reduce pain and swelling.
Which makes it a great addition to our milk bath. Which is why it’s also the main ingredient in our bath salts.
The Farmers Almanac has a great blog post titled “20 Surprising Uses for Epsom Salt” here, with these making the list:
1 body aches
2 stress relief and sleep aid
3 healthy feet
4 constipation relief
6 sunburn relief
7 splinter removal
9 acne treatment
10 banish blackheads
11 healthy hair
12 moisturizing hand wash
13 cold and flu relief
14 poison ivy relief
15 bug bite relief
16 washing pots and pans
17 grout cleaner
18 washing machine cleaner
19 in the yard and garden
20 healthier plants
And for me, this is one of my favorite uses:
doTERRA’s DIY Beach Wave Salt Spray
8 ounce spray bottle
2 Tablespoons epsom salt
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon doTERRA Salon Essentials Healthy Hold Glaze
1/2 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil
5 drops rosemary oil
5 drops lemon oil
1 cup hot water
Add first 6 ingredients to spray bottle. Then add hot water. Shake until dissolved.
To use, spray generously on wet or towel-dried hair while scrunching with hands. Let dry.
And that’s how I get my waves!
ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL/ ROSE WATER
Rose essential oil is insanely expensive! But SO wonderful for the skin!
With these benefits:
Helps balance moisture levels in the skin and reduce the appearance of skin imperfections
Promotes an even skin tone and healthy-looking complexion
Soothing and stress-relieving aroma
Rejuvenating, stimulating, and harmonizing
It’s also super hydrating. Which is why I use it in our milk bath… and in our face mist.
Rose water, on the other hand, is much more affordable. And has lots of practical uses.

I’ve found a recipe, for making your own rose water! So easy! I’ve used it before, to make a cocktail!
The cocktail I made was a Apple Flower Cocktail. Recipe here!
I found it when I was looking for farm to table drinks. It uses fresh apples and limes, and rose water (with roses straight from my garden). It couldn’t get more farm to table than that! And it was delish!!!
