lavender oatmeal bath is the easy diy your summer skin needs!
Everyone always complains about winter skin – dry, chapped, irritated. I don’t know, for me it’s summer skin that’s the problem. Between the heat, humidity, sand and salt water, by mid-summer my skin is crying for help.
This oh-so-easy oatmeal bath is incredibly soothing and fragrant – perfect for skin that needs a little TLC, or frankly just an anytime spa experience.
Here’s why these ingredients create such a winning recipe when combined in a bath soak:
Baking soda: reduces skin irritation and itching, and provides detoxifying benefits
Epsom salt: long known for its skin soothing properties
Oatmeal: dry, itchy skin often has a high pH level which oats can normalize. Oats are also rich in saponins which provide a moisturizing and soothing effect.
Lavender: soothes inflammation and has analgesic, pain-relieving properties
Keep a jar of this by your bathtub, or bring it to a friend for a sweet, pampering gift!
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 cup epsom salt
1/2 cup baking soda
30 – 40 drops Lavender essential oil
Process the oats in a food processor till it’s as fine as flour. Transfer to a bowl and add the epsom salt and baking soda. Add the Lavender oil and mix thoroughly. Transfer to an airtight jar. Use 1/2 – 1 cup per bath.
