One of the most famous beauty secrets of Cleopatra was “milk and honey” bath. Cleopatra used to mix milk of a young donkey with fresh honey and almond oil. It’s known that while traveling, she used to take couple of donkeys with her, in case if anytime she wanted to take a bath. We won’t start doing the same, but we can somehow imitate this beauty secret of “eternal youth” from the famous Queen. To prepare the milk and honey bath, mix half cup of honey with 3 cups of milk and add 5 tablespoons almond oil (you can use olive oil instead), then pour this substance into your bath and enjoy gentle and soft skin!

We’ve found an easy solution if you would like a quick answer to this bath with these three pre packaged products that can be added to a water bath without grabbing gallons of milk and honey.

For better effect of the milk and honey bath, the servants of Cleopatra used to massage her body with amazing, natural body scrub.
You will need: 2 table spoons of sea salt and 3 table spoons of thick cream (natural, flavour free cream).
Mix sea salt with cream and gently rub your body with it in circular motions. Make sure to leave this scrub to sit on your skin for at least 5 minutes, then rinse. This scrub will gently exfoliate your skin and make your body feel smooth and soft like heaven! Cream is not always required as you can buy coarse sea salt and rub it gently across your skin while showering.

Another beauty secret of Cleopatra is a special face cream.

You will need:
2 tablespoons of aloe vera juice,
4 drops of rose essential oil,
1 tablespoon of almond oil,
2 spoons of beeswax.

Slowly heat the beeswax and almond oil till the substance gets liquid, but don’t boil it (you can vary the quantity of beeswax, the more of it you add – the thicker your cream will be). Add aloe vera juice and rose essential oil, mix thoroughly. (Optional: you can add vitamin E capsule into your cream). Let your cream cool down, pour it into a glass container and store in your fridge (it can last for about a week). All the ingredients are totally natural and filled with vitamins. Isn’t it amazing!

Mix 3 table spoons of honey with 1 table spoon of castor oil (if you don’t have castor oil – olive oil will do), apply this substance on your freshly washed hair and let it soak in for 5-15 minutes, then rinse. This natural hair treatment helps to repair damaged hair, giving it more shine and softness.

You may also use hot oil treatments to repair damaged hair. Just warm up the bottle in a tub of hot water (not boiling) and saturate your wet hair with the treatment. Leave in your hair for a good 30 minutes and rinse out.
