Silk Soak Recipe

Submitted By:

Annette of Eugene, OR


Sunflower seeds, oatmeal, milk bath


1 part sunflower seeds
1 part corn starch
2 parts finely ground oats
2 parts milk powder


Coarsly grind the seeds in a blender or food processor. Add the other ingredients and mix thoroughly. Fragrance with oils or dry ingredients. Because the sunflower seeds are so fragrant, earthy scents like nutmeg, almond and comfrey work well. I prefer to use dry fragrances but oils work well too. This luxurious bath combines the skin soothing properties of oatmeal with softening milk and corn starch. The ground seeds release their natural oils when added to a hot bath.
