Myrna Loy Bath Recipe

I have always thought of Myrna Loy and Clark Gable as the king and queen of Hollywood. Myrna was known for playing exotic women. In her 1933 hit movie The Barbarian, the star luxuriated in a petal-strewn bath. That bath scene was where I got the idea for this recipe—it will bring out your “inner movie star.”

• 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
• 1/4 cup mild liquid soap
• 1/4 cup rosewater
• 2 to 3 drops gardenia essential oil
• Fresh rose petals and gardenia flowers

1. Stir together oil, soap and rosewater.

2. Add gardenia oil and stir well.

3. Pour into a clean container.
