Picture yourself in a serene oasis, surrounded by the lush beauty of Maui, with the gentle scent of lavender wafting through the air.

That’s Ali’i Lavender Farm on the slopes of Haleakala Volcano. 

Above is a photo of the lavender cosmetics workshop we recently hosted at Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm.

It’s a magical place of peace and serenity.

And now you can take that sense of space with you to your home spa!

Presenting Kula Fog Lavender Milk Bath

Leiohu Cosmetics presents Kula Fog Lavender Milk Bath, a tropical twist on the traditional London Fog tea.

Our soothing blend combines the floral notes of lavender with the citrusy charm of bergamot, all enhanced by the creamy goodness of coconut milk powder.

Find the DIY recipe for our Kula Lavender Milk Bath below.

Or have us do the work and order a beautiful jar here. The perfect gift for anyone needed a reset.

Kula Lavender – A Touch of Maui Magic

Our Kula Fog milk bath starts with a touch of plant magic from Maui – Kula lavender. 

Kula lavender not only imparts a delightful fragrance but also boasts various skincare benefits, including soothing irritation and promoting relaxation. 

Leiohu Cosmetics is proud to source their lavender directly from Ali’i Lavender Farm.

Earl Grey Tea – A London Fog Inspired Twist

We took our inspiration from the Kula Fog tea served at Marlow, a wonderful neighborhood restaurant in Pukalani.

Marlow in turn was inspired by the traditional London Fog tea, which combines Earl Grey (black tea scented with bergamot), with steamed milk and a touch of sweetener.

Bergamot is a type of citrus fruit known for its fragrant oil, which is used in aromatherapy, perfumery, and as a flavoring in food and tea.

Coconut Milk Powder – Creamy Indulgence

To elevate the indulgence factor and give it a tropical twist, we’ve added coconut milk powder to our Kula Fog bath soak.

Coconut milk is rich in vitamins and fatty acids, which can help moisturize and soften your skin. 

It also complements the floral and citrusy notes of lavender and bergamot with a subtle, creamy undertone, making your bath feel like a tropical escape.
