It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year…but it can also be kind of stressful. I love visiting & having family visit but I also adhere to a strict “sanctuary” policy. Beth time is my time! & even guests seem to agree. I often put together a goodie basket of bathroom products to make visitors feel more at home & always include something to make bath time more luxurious. Today I’m sharing one of my absolute favorites for the colder months- my DIY recipe for Honey Coconut Milk Bath. Get ready to soak away your stress & get moisturized!
The first step is gathering your items needed to get this tutorial started! You need 1 can of coconut milk, raw, filtered honey like this from Don Victor Honey, a bowl for mixing, something to mix with like a whisk, & a bottle to put it in if you’re going to be giving as a gift. You’ll also want to store this in the refrigerator if you prepare beforehand. Be sure to always store honey at room temperature (like in the pantry!) because when stored in the refrigerator on its own it will crystallize quickly. If you find it has crystallized a bit (this is normal so don’t panic!) just place your glass honey jar in a bit of warm water & stir.
Grab your bowl & whisk! You want something that has higher sides.
Add in your can of coconut milk. Mix a bit because coconut milk separates!
Whisk & you’re done! It will be a bit frothy & smell sweet. This is the point where you can add additional scented oils if desired as well. I rarely do this as I love the scent of milk & honey together!
One of the most important parts of skincare is the ingredients so be sure you’re using high-quality ones! You can purchase the Don Victor Honey from Walmart in the Hispanic Aisle. You’ll find it is is raw, filtered honey, not heated or processed in any other way. We actually collect different types of honey & have tons! This one is special because it comes with a large piece of the comb inside! You can eat honeycomb so make sure you don’t throw it out! Another great use for honey in our house is as a lip scrub. Just combine with a bit of raw sugar & lightly exfoliate lips. Honey is SUPER moisturizing so it is a perfect go-to!
