Pumpkin Pie Spiced Milk Bath

Have you ever smelled something so delicious you wish you could literally bathe in it? For me, that scent is pumpkin pie, fresh from the oven. The warm, comforting waft of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger is like olfactory nirvana. Since bathing in a tub full of pie filling might be a little on the messy side, I came up with the next-best thing: a pumpkin pie spiced milk bath that not only smells incredibly yummy, but has loads of beauty benefits. The milk softens and exfoliates, ginger increases circulation, and cinnamon relieves itchy skin. Draw this DIY bath for yourself when a pie craving starts coming on, or whip up a double batch and bottle in cute jars for holiday gifts! –Hannah
