There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them.

Perfumed Bath Powder Recipe

You will need:
2 cups cornstarch
1 cup rice flour
1 teaspoon orrisroot powder
Several drops of your favorite essential oil

Mix all the ingredients together and store the powder in a tightly closed tin for 1 week so that the orrisroot powder will absorb the scent. Transfer powder to other containers of your choice, if desired.

Variation: Omit essential oil from the above recipe. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract to the powder and 1 or 2 vanilla beans. Store the powder in a tightly closed tin.

Bath and Body Tip #3

As well as soft fluffy towels, having PJs, slippers or a warm robe ready for when you hop out the bath saves you the trouble of trying to find clothes just when you're relaxed.
