This Rose Petal Milk Bath is the ultimate luxury spa experience and with this recipe, it’ll cost you less than $10 to include this indulgent gift in your Mother’s Day basket. The lactic acid found in milk acts as a wonderful gentle exfoliant for those of us who don’t want to do anything in the bath other than soak, leaving your skin dewy and soft. Your mom will definitely love this gift and I bet you’ll be saving a second batch for yourself!
