Lavender Milk Bath Recipe

How to make a lavender milk bath recipe. This is an easy recipe that's made with real milk powder, dead sea salt, and dried lavender buds. I packaged it in test tubes for an adorable gift idea, but you can also use a jar.

I really like these test tubes for making herbal bath salts because you can see the ingredients. I layered mine. You can also use bath salt jars and combine all of the ingredients.

To make a lavender milk bath, you will need:

For a vegan or non dairy option, use powdered coconut milk.

I also have a list of other herbs that you can use on my lavender milk bath recipe post.

Place the dead sea salt in a small bowl. Add 1/8 teaspoon of mica and stir well to color the salts. Add more mica as needed.

Then alternate the ingredients to fill the test tubes. I added purple salts, milk powder, lavender buds, milk powder, and purple salts.

You can also mix everything and add it all at once.

Dump one container into a bath. If you use bath salt jars, use about 1/4 of a cup per bath.


  • 4 tablespoons dead sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons dried milk powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender buds
  • Purple mica

Combine the sea salt and mica in a bowl. I used about 1/8 teaspoon of mica and stirred well. Add more mica as needed.
Begin layering the test tube bath salts. I put in from bottom to top purple sea salt, milk powder, lavender buds, milk powder, and finally purple sea salt on top. You can alternate layers if you wish. You could also just combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and pour that in.
Dump the entire test tube in running water to make an herbal bath soak. You'll get the lavender milk bath benefits from the salts, lavender, and the dry milk.
