A Hot Bath on a Cold Sunday

No, not soup or bread, but homemade bath oil, made from kitchen cupboard ingredients:

Egg-Cream Bath Oil
1 whole egg
1/2 cup sesame oil (or another vegetable oil; note: this is light sesame oil from the wholefood store, not the dark kind used to season Chinese food!)
1 Tbsp washing-up liquid
2 Tbsp rubbing alcohol (or vodka if you prefer – this is a preservative and helps disperse the bath oil)
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp orange or lemon extract (or favorite essential oil or perfume)

Beat egg and sesame oil together until smooth with a wire whisk.
Slowly add washing-up liquid while you continue beating. A smooth, pale gold lotion will form.
Very slowly add alcohol (which will thin mixture again), and then the milk. The milk may be a bit difficult to beat in.
Add scent. You can also substitute your favorite cologne in place of all or part of the alcohol.
Use Ľ cup or more per bath. Store in refrigerator.
