Relax this Valentine’s Day with a combo that bathers swear by

Honey and milk, maybe an herb. A dash or two of essential oils, and voila! It’s a soothing bath blend custom-made for a relaxing Valentine’s Day soak.

“The combination of honey and milk has been used from ancient times to treat skin problems and nourish the skin,” says “When both these skin-benefiting agents are used together, the result is amazing.”

Apparently, Egyptian rulers enjoyed a good old-fashioned milk-and-honey bath, too.

“Cleopatra soaked in fragrant milk and honey baths, which kept her skin looking beautiful and radiant,” says

Adds “Milk contains a known skin exfoliant. Honey is a natural emollient. Skin will feel smooth, soft and rejuvenated after a 20-minute soak.”
