I found this great idea for another use for powdered milk in an online cookbook. There was no author listed, so I don’t know who to credit. It’s a clever use for powdered milk items should you have a surplus near expiration.
Skin Soothing Milk Bath
1/2 c. powdered milk
1/2 c. powdered buttermilk
1/2 c. cornstarch
2 T. honey powder (or honey)
1/2 c. rolled oats, ground
2 T. Sweet Almond oil (extra virgin olive oil can be substituted)
1 t. of fragrance oil or essential oil of choice (may be omitted for a clean, milky scented bath, or you may add vanilla extract or other flavored extract instead for scent.)
Blend all the ingredients until well mixed. Store in an air-tight container and use 1/4 to 1/2 cup per bath. Makes the skin silky smooth. You can also add a small amount of essential oil for fragrance.
