If you’re looking to upgrade your bath times, our NEW Magnesium Bath Milks may be just the thing you need right now…
What Is A Bath Milk?
A bath milk is a luxuriously creamy and super milky bath soak that brings a whole host of benefits to your skin, mind and body. Unlike a bath foam, it gives a silk soak instead of a bubbly one.
Packed with a 100% natural relaxing scent, our Bath Milks not only help soothe frazzled minds and quieten racing thoughts for a real calming experience, but they also help to soften the skin and relieve sore muscles. They really are the perfect addition to your nightly wellbeing routine.
The Origins Of Bath Milk
Although a long bath might feel very in keeping with our 21st century preoccupation with self-care, the practice of imbuing a bath with milk (scented or otherwise) is a centuries old tradition. The reason behind its popularity is thanks to the delicate exfoliating action of the alpha hydroxy acids that are found in milk. Upon immersion in it, the acids work to slough off dead cells gently from the skin’s surface, leaving it smoother and more even in texture. The natural fats found in milk meanwhile, cling to the skin and leave behind a silky residue which helps it to feel softer and more nourished.
While Ancient Egypt’s Cleopatra was perhaps the most famous advocate for the skin-softening benefits of bathing in milk, the ancient Romans continued the tradition and since then many iterations have followed. Today, while bathing in milk is still a popular practice, sophisticated formulas that mimic the consistency and texture take it a step further. Here’s everything you need to know about our NEW Magnesium Bath Milks which welcome relaxing essential oil blends with organic oils, vitamins and magnesium…
What Is Bath Milk Good For?
If you’re a fan of a long, hot soak in the tub already, it won’t come as a surprise to you that there are a vast number of benefits of having a bath. As well as helping to increase your mood and improve your sleep, having a bath can help you to feel more relaxed and even soothe achy muscles. The benefits don’t stop there however as your skin will also thank you too.
If you are tempted to elevate your evening soak, the good news is that more is more. The only thing better than a bath laced with creamy bath milks and effervescent Bath Foams, is one surrounded by the ambient flicker of Candles and the scented serenity provided by a Diffuser.
Ingredients Of NEOM Bath Milks
Formulated specially to provide soothing relief to both the body and mind, our NEW Bath Milks contain a blend of 95% naturally derived ingredients - 70% of which are certified organic. They’re also vegan and suitable for use during pregnancy.
There’s a trio of skin-restoring organic oils like antioxidant-rich jojoba oil, argan oil and olive oil alongside aloe vera to help soothe and soften the skin as well as the mighty mineral magnesium.
In true NEOM style, they also boast a 100% natural fragrance and are packed with essential oils that not only smell wonderful, but help to bring a wellbeing boost too.

Benefits Of NEOM Bath Milks
Undeniably the biggest benefit of our Magnesium Bath Milks is their ability to help you unwind and bring a moment of calm. Both Real Luxury and Perfect Night’s Sleep work wonders for helping you to relax thanks to the inclusion of soothing essential oils which make them ideal if you’re needing some time-out to switch off and prepare for a more restful night’s sleep.
The skin benefits are also second to none as these Bath Milks help to nourish AND moisturise for silky-smooth softness.
Next up, they are great for soothing tired bodies after a long day or achy muscles post-workout. This is all thanks to magnesium - which, when infused within a warm bath helps to relieve muscle tightness and soreness. It even helps to remineralise and cleanse the skin as well as enhancing it’s natural hydration.
How To Use NEOM Bath Milks
To transform your bath into a serene sanctuary in seconds, follow these simple steps…
- Shake your chosen Bath Milk well before use
- Pour 4-5 capfuls under hot running water - the creamy formula will disperse immediately, turning the water cloudy and infusing it with its enveloping fragrance.
- For best results, soak for at least 10 minutes.

What’s The Difference Between Bath Milk And Bubble Bath?
With their blend of essential oils, antioxidants and magnesium, our Bath Milks are perfect when you need to destress both body and mind but still crave a luxurious soak.
If frothy peaks of scented bubbles are a non-negotiable when it comes to your soak, then our Bath Foams are the perfect choice for elevating an everyday bath. With three scents to choose from depending on whether you need help drifting off or help to unwind, each one is loaded with a carefully crafted blend of fragrant essential oils to scent the water AND soften your skin. And for a truly cocooning experience, every drop delivers a cloud of blissful bubbles for you to sink back and relax into.
To reap the calming rewards of the Bath Milks AND enjoy the foaming frivolity of our Bath Foams, add a few capfuls of Bath Milk followed by a glug of Bath Foam to the water. For a harmonious scent experience, opt for complementary fragrances or for something more bespoke layer different scents according to your needs. Whatever you choose all that’s left for you to do is shut the door, close your eyes and revel in the calm.
