Luxurious Oatmeal Milk Bath Tutorial compliments Forest Hill Soaps

Just in time for Mother's Day! Thank you Susan for this wonderful tutorial! Please be sure to check out Forest Hill Soaps for beautiful handcrafted soaps, lotion bars and more!

Oatmeal and milk are well known for their skin soothing and nourishing qualities.  It only takes a few minutes to make an oatmeal milk bath.  You can even ‘dress it up’ into an aromatherapy bath!
You will need
·       3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal
·       Blender
·       Mixing bowl
·       3 cups powdered milk
·       1/4 cup sea salt or Epsom salts
·       Several drops of your favorite essential oil or blend. (optional) examples: lavender, peppermint, rosemary
Using the blender - pulverize oatmeal into a fine powder. Or you can use baby oatmeal—just be certain it contains only oatmeal, and no fillers.
Transfer the powdered oatmeal to a mixing bowl and stir in the powdered milk and sea salt or Epsom salts.
If you want an aromatherapy experience with your bath add the essential oils to the oatmeal/milk/salts mixture
Mix until the oils are thoroughly incorporated with the other ingredients.
Store your oatmeal milk bath in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Add about ¼ cup to running bath water and relax!!
