So there I am on Saturday evening, having just made my favourite salad with the chicken and rice poached/cooked with a mix of water and coconut milk, and I was about to put the half a tin of coconut milk left into a bowl and into the fridge …
And then I thought, but wouldn’t that be amazing and gorgeous and nourishing in a bath?
So I ran a very hot bath and threw it in along with a tablespoon of honey.
I made the bath very hot to make sure they melted and blended and dispersed so didn’t get into it for quite a while after to let it cool down of course but when it was I also added a few drops of lavender essential oil.
It was so good I thought I really should work up a more instant, useable and elegant way to enjoy a coconut milk and honey bath soak.
This time I started by putting the coconut milk and honey together in a pan and heating very gently, stirring, until they were just warm and combined, and then removed from the heat and allowed to cool before pouring into a bottle.
It made enough for two baths and it lasted perfectly well overnight on the bathroom windowsill without any ill effects or separating again.
Next time I’ll try keeping it in the fridge to see how that works as an alternative.
This is such a lovely super-moisturising bath soak - it’s so simple to make too and feels really luxurious.
