  • Grind the hiscus petals in a coffee grinder, or use a mortar and pestle such as the one pictured above. Hibiscus petals tend to be quite sharp if not ground. Set aside the ground petals. If using pre-made hibiscus powder, skip this step.
  • Combine the powdered milk and honey powder in a glass bowl. Mix well, then add the flowers petals and mix again.
  • Use a small spoon or funnel to transfer your milk and honey bath to a milk jar, mason jar or other container with a tight-fitting lid. Honey powder will draw moisture from the air if not kept sealed. Keep in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • To use, pour the contents in a warm bath and enjoy. If your petals are large, be sure to scoop them out before draining the bath water to avoid clogs. 


You can also add epsom salts to this bath soak to help meet your daily magnesium requirements. Magnesium deficiency can lead to many unpleasant conditions such as migraines, and other health issues so we try to get enough. Trauma or chronic stress can also delete the magnesium stores in the body.
Epsom salts can also benefit achy muscles by easing the inflammation caused by minor injuries or arthritis.
