We grow over 100 varieties of cut flowers on our Hudson Valley Flower Farm so incorporating a little bit of our in-season summer beauty into our botanical soaks is a no-brainer. Our Soothing Chamomile & Honey Milk Bath is especially helpful for people with sensitive skin or those who suffer from skin ailments such as eczema. This soak is fragrance-free and contains the following ultra beneficial ingredients:
Colloidal Oatmeal - This is an all-natural skin soothing solution for eczema, bug bites, sunburns, poison ivy and other itchy and other inflamed skin conditions. When applied topically, colloidal oatmeal works by attracting moisture to the skin and locking it in by forming a protective barrier.
Powdered Goat's Milk - Goat's milk powder's main benefit it to keep the skin hydrated. It's also packed with nutrients like lactic acid and vitamins A and D.
Epsom Salt - Epsom Salt aka Magnesium Sulfate is, of course, used for relieving tired muscles. But Epsom Salt is also thought to be handy for boosting your metabolism, helping with sluggish digestion, beating stress and insomnia, as well as soothing inflamed or irritated skin.
Powdered Clover Honey -Honey powder has profound effects on the skin and can be used everyday to greatly strengthen the skin's foundation and brighten the complexion. It also offers antimicrobial properties and helps fight the signs of aging.
Then we cram a whole bunch of our chemical free dried Chamomile flowers which work to relax the body and set the mood.
An added benefit of this soak is that it doulbes as a fantastic fascial mask for sensitive skin. First, remove any of the Chamomile flowers and place 1 - 2 scoops of the powder onto a plate. Add about 1 teaspoonful of your favorite hydrating agent (i.e. hydrosol, witch hazel, water, aloe vera juice, green tea, etc.) or enough to form a paste. Spread evenly onto damp skin and allow it to sit for 15 minutes then rinse with warm water. Follow with your favorite hydrating lotion.
We package all of our products in sustainable and reusable jars whenever possible. Our soaks are no different. Choorse from our lovely 8 oz glass jar (it looks gorgeous displayed in the bathroom or given as a gift) or opt for our 8 oz paper refill bag which is also available. We also include a reusable bath tea bag and wooden scoop.
