Homemade oatmeal bath with lavender and chamomile for dry, problem skin
This super-nourishing homemade oatmeal bath recipe will soothe and moisturize dry, irritated or problem skin. Oatmeal, chamomile and lavender reduce dryness, itchiness and inflammation - a winner for skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and extreme acne.
This is also a good bath product to use if you (or your kids) have a sunburn or a rash. Keep in mind that serious burns and rashes should see a doctor.
Oatmeal is great for any type of itchiness because it soothes irritated skin while drawing out toxins.
In addition to healing your skin, this gentle aromatherapy bath recipe calms your nerves,
quiets your mind and makes you pleasantly drowsy - the perfect choice for a pre-bedtime bath!
Homemade Oatmeal Bath Recipe
2 cups Rolled Oats
3 tablespoons Chamomile flowers
3 tablespoons Lavender flowers
4 drops Chamomile essential oil
4 drops Lavender essential oil
3 drops Palmarosa essential oil
Use your blender or clean coffee grinder to grind the oats to a coarse powder.
Combine them in a large bowl with the chamomile and lavender flowers.
Drop in the essential oils, placing each drop in its own little spot on top of the mixture.
Use a stainless steel spoon to gently stir everything together.
Dry off without rinsing, and lock in moisture with a good body lotion.

Where to Buy Homemade Oatmeal Bath Recipe Ingredients
You'll find rolled oats and cheesecloth in your grocery store - buy large flake oats rather than quick-cooking oats.
My favorite supplier for ingredients for bath and body recipes is Mountain Rose Herbs.
Their prices and quality are excellent. Here's some quick links to the ingredients
you'll need for this aromatherapy bath recipe...
While not strictly aromatherapy, these recipes follow the same healthy, natural principles.
Here's a snippet of what Sue Dolan (author) says: "When you do find a good skin care product it's the natural ingredients that do the work, not the fillers or chemical additives. They don't need to cost us 20 times more than they should."
This video clip shows you how to make a Honey Almond Scrub (instructions start about 1 minute into the video) using one of Sue's recipes.
I love that her recipes use natural, inexpensive ingredients that are so safe you can eat them.
In fact, many of the ingredients are in your kitchen right now.
I totally believe in this - nature's products are by far the best, and they're so much less expensive than store stuff.
It's why I got into aromatherapy in the first place and, over and over, my experience has proven that it's true.
