Bath Potions by Gyspy Willowmoon

Hey Guys! Its Gypsy,


My daughter has recently entered into the journey of teen - Complete with skin eruptions, moods and emotional reactions...


She asked for some Witchy skincare help, as she has become sensitive and itchy over the last few weeks.



She enjoys a bath, don't we all?


We looked at the shower gels and bubble baths that she uses, and concluded that we would make some of our own skin friendly bath potions.


I love to work with bath milk recipes, whether for relaxation or working magic. The reason being, that milk has a n active ingredient called  Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which dissolves the proteins that hold dead skin cells together, allowing for them to be scrubbed away. Corn starch, also soothes and calms irritated or dry skin conditions.


Below is our basic recipe:


Store in an air tight container and use within 3 weeks of making.


1 1/2 cups of fresh or full fat powdered milk

1/2 cup Baking soda

1/2 cup Corn starch

15-20 drops of essential oil(s)

Herbs and flowers of intent - optional

crystal chips  - optional


Allow to settle for 24 hours before adding to the bath


Match your intent to your potion mix... Inspiration below.
