Buttermilk Bath

When I first started making milk bath I didn't know what i was doing and used non-fat instant milk powder from the store. After months of doing this I discovered I was supposed to be using WHOLE FAT milk powder: goatmilk, cow's milk, coconut milk but to get true skin moisturizing and softening one MUST use whole fat milk powder. Using non-fat milk is just like using colored water. All the skin goodness has been taken out of it. Now online, they charge ridiculous prices for this stuff, the local health food store wants $9 for 12 ounces of it! I found whole fat cultured buttermilk powder, 12 ounce can for just $3 at Walmart. I'm finding my milk bath mix now clumps when I add my essential and fragrance oils so will be adding Natrasorb to it, this will raise my price a lttle but my customers can be assured they are buying a premium product that is good for their skin and not some cheap knock off. They will be getting their money's worth on something that is luxurious and good for them and truly wonderful to soak in.
