This super-nourishing homemade oatmeal bath recipe will soothe and moisturize dry, irritated or problem skin.
Oatmeal, chamomile and lavender help 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 helping rejuvenate 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!
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.
Place the herbal bath tea mixture in a dark glass or PET plastic jar.
Cap the jar and let it sit for at least 24 hours before using to let the aroma 'cure' (longer is better.)
