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
· 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!!
