Strawbery Shortcake Bath

Recipe from Natural Beauty from the Garden courtesy of Janice Cox.

“This is a rich, fruit-scented bath that is perfect for dry, delicate skin. It makes the bathwater a creamy shade of pink and contains two natural emollients — fresh cream and castor oil. Castor oil has been used for years as a health tonic. It comes from the seeds of the castor plant. This oil is used in many bath products because it easily disperses through the bathwater, rather than floating on top as other oils do. The heat from the warm water helps the oil penetrate and moisturize dry skin.”

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon cold-pressed castor oil*

 

Directions:

Place all of the ingredients into a blender and process on high until you have a smooth, creamy liquid. You may strain this mixture if you like. To use: Pour the strawberry mixture into a warm bath and stir well.

Yield: 24 ounces, enough for one bath

* If castor oil is not readily available, we suggest substituting any light, natural oil. Suggested substitutes are almond, sunflower, or canola oil, which are easy to find at most grocery or drugstores and will provide a similar result.
