How to Make Your Own: Oatmeal Bath

This is a simple way to soothe sensitive skin. This bath is great for dry, itchy skin. It will also soothe a rash.

  • 10 Drops Chamomile Essential Oil (or Lavender Essential Oil)
  • 200g Rolled Oats

Use a blender to grind down the oats until they look like powder. Add them into your bath water.Add the essential oil and stir the bath water. Relax for at least 20 minutes in the bath. It’s best to avoid any other bubble bath, shower gel, shampoo and other products with chemicals as they may irritate your skin and negate the effects of the oil and oats. Pat your skin dry.

I love baths like this when it’s cold out. It feels like heaven and my skin feels so soft afterwards.

    I just want to say thank you very much for posting this. My dad has very very dry skin, to the point where it actually comes away it patches, and everything we have ever bought has not worked. We tried your idea and it has helped so much, my dads skin is no where near as dry as it was before. Thank you very much for sharing this. Me and my dad appreciate it so much x
