Bath Time: Fig + Yarrow Bath Milk

Okay, I have to admit something to you guys... This is going to sound a bit weird but I can honestly say that I hadn't had a bath in literally years. Well, that was until I started working out every day and then the bath became my solace. There's nothing like soaking sore muscles in a relaxing bubble bath, and it certainly beats those horrible water needles you get in the shower after a workout!

So, needless to say I've been looking for a couple of products that would enhance the bath time experience, and I was immediately drawn to this bath milk when the lovely EssieButton blogged about it a few weeks ago. I've never really come across these kind of powders which you pop in the bath before, so when I ordered this I was pretty excited to try it out.

Fig + Yarrow floral milk bath is described as "an aromatic blend of beautifying florals in skin softening milks and therapeutic salts". When I first had a sniff of the stuff it smelt pretty strong; I could certainly catch a floral scent - the light yellow powder reminded me of pollen, actually - but when the smell settles I think it actually begins to smell like sherbet lemons, although that could just be me! All you need to do is run a bath and sprinkle a tablespoon or two into the water just before you get in. The powder is a blissful blend of milk, salts and fragrant essential oils. Featuring rosewood, ylang ylang, geranium and jasmine, sea and epsom salts and sweet cream buttermilk powder, the aroma-therapeutic crystals emulsify in the water to nourish your skin, eliminate toxins and restore calm whenever there's crisis. I must say that my skin felt incredibly soft and nourished after soaking for half an hour so I guess it worked quite nicely.

As far as I'm aware, you can only get Fig + Yarrow products over at Cult Beauty if you live in the UK. At £24.00 for 14 ounces, it is definitely an investment buy, but you can also get a smaller 5 ounce packet for £8.00 if you don't want to splash out on a huge jar right away. Overall though, I really love this bath milk, and already have my eye on a couple of other Fig + Yarrow products (hello, pink love salts!) And, of course, what bath time isn't complete with a couple of delicious smelling candles? I bought a couple of small glass jar Yankee candles (strawberry buttercream and fluffy towels) which not only look great but really relax you when lit! I usually watch the new episode of Game of Thrones while I'm in the bath but last night I settled for one of my favourite episodes of Never Mind the Buzzcocks instead (Mousecat: he chases himself!)

Have you tried any Fig + Yarrow products? What products relax you during bath time?


  1. Fluffy towels is the best candle ever made. EVER.

    1. I LOVE it! Also discovered another smell which I love in the form of a Glade air freshener which smells like clean linen. My room stinks of it now but it's sooo good!
