Good Morning ! Today’s recipe is an oldie but a goodie : Oatmeal Bath
- 1 cup regular oats
- ¼ cup baking soda
- 1/8 cup dried lavender (from my garden)
- In a grinder or food processor, grind the oats and lavender together until you reach your desired texture. (I like to leave some of the oats intact to help exfoliate but it does make for a messier bathtub.)
To Use: Run bath water at full force and sprinkle ¼ cup of oatmeal bath mixure underneath running bath water. Stir any oatmeal that might settle at the bottom into the bath. Soak in the oatmeal bath for at least 20 minutes, and more if desired!
To heal dry skin, do not wipe your skin dry when getting out of the tub, PAT it dry instead. Follow with a healing body butter to lock in the moisture and further heal dry skin.
Why Oatmeal :
Parents and doctors alike have been turning to the skin-soothing powers of oatmeal for ages. It’s not surprising, then, that you’ll find finely powdered (colloidal) oatmeal listed among the ingredients in many body soaks, moisturizers, and soaps (for kids and adults).
Oatmeal is a natural way to lock in the body’s moisture, protect the skin, and soothe any irritation or itching
