Dreaming of a little relaxation, peace, and a warm bath? Packed with amazing skin benefits, this Lavender Oatmeal Bath Soak is chock-full of excellent ingredients that are beneficial to your skin, body, and mind that it is like having a mini spa experience at home.

Having become a familiar ingredient in many all-natural beauty products oatmeal improves, repairs and soothes itching, dry, and irritated skin. Lavender creates a relaxing and spiritually uplifting atmosphere and can even help enhance the look of healthy skin.
When my son was still young, I made this Oatmeal and Lavender blend for the first time. An itchy rash covered his body from an allergic reaction to what we call "chiggers" here on the homestead. My heart pained for him as his small body was obviously in misery. I decided to make this bath soak to help soothe his skin and lift his spirits. It helped so much he was not itching anymore, the inflammation reduced and he was able to sleep through the night without scratching. The rash cleared up the next day. We have religiously used this soak since that day whenever there is an itchy rash which needs to be tended to. 
The ingredients are quite simple being oatmeal, baking soda, brown sugar, and lavender. I grow my lavender in organic gardens using mushroom compost and purchase the baking soda, brown sugar and oatmeal at the Amish Community in nearby Scottsville, Ky. 
♥ Oatmeal battles dryness by issuing a protecting layer on the skin. It moisturizes, cleanses, and helps to support the skin’s natural barrier function. It also contains naturally occurring antioxidants that have been found to display anti-inflammatory properties. Oatmeal turns your bath water silky and milky and is fantastic for soothing dry and irritated skin. Many people submerge in colloidal (powdered) oatmeal to relieve skin conditions such as chicken pox, poison ivy rash, and eczema. 
♥ Lavender is well-known for its soothing, calming and restorative properties in health conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress, irritability, headaches, migraines, imbalances, and can assist you in winding down before bedtime. It has been shown to support in the healing of cuts, burns, skin irritations and eczema with its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, it is a perfect ingredient for our bath soak (it also leaves your skin delicately scented)!
♥ Baking Soda increases the pH of the skin, which soothes itchiness, helps to calm and reduce itchiness.

♥ Brown Sugar is the finest grain sugar. It contains vitamin B, specifically, Nicotinamide, a derivative of Vitamin B3 (Niacin), which has been shown to enhance the ability of the epidermis layer of the skin to retain moisture. Capacity to retain moisture leads to softer, smoother skin with less dryness and flakiness, and a reduction of fine lines.

Instructions for Bath: 
♦ Add 3/4 - 1 cup to warm bath water and stir to distribute. 
♦ OR Fill your tea bag provided and dangle the tea bag under the running bath water before submerging it in the tub. 
♦ Climb in and relish this super soothing, comforting bath! 
♦ Soak 15 - 30 minutes. 
♦ You can rub the tea bag onto your skin and any problem areas. 
♦ Be sure to squeeze your bundle of lavender and oatmeal in your hands under the water to liberate the smooth, milky goodness from the oats.​

Instruction for Scrub: Ratio: 2 tsp scrub to 1/4 - 1/2 tsp liquid. Use water for normal skin. Use milk or cream for dry skin. 

Instructions for Mask: After scrubbing, leave on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing.


Care Instructions: 
Store this oatmeal soak in its original sealed container in your refrigerator for up to six months. Do not get water into the original container.

To create a luxurious and relaxing experience just add the Soak to your warm bath water. It feels amazingly silky and moisturizing. The baking soda serves as a natural and delicate cleanser, so there is no need to use any other soap. After you emerge from your soak, and skin is still wet, or while you are soaking in the tub, use as a scrub and mask!
My favorite way to use this soak is as a three-for-one! I draw my bath with warm water and hang my tea bag on the faucet. The water becomes beautifully and luxuriously milky. While the tub is filling, I prepare my scrub/mask in a small glass dish by scooping out 2 Tsp of the oatmeal mixture and blend with 1/2 tsp milk because my T-Zone is dry. (Use water if you have normal skin.) This ratio creates a grainy, pasty texture. Placing the glass dish in the corner of the tub, I submerge myself in the warm, milky, heavenly bath. After soaking for a few minutes, the steam and hot water have penetrated and opened my pores. I use my scrub by massaging in circular motions, starting at my nose outwards, on my face and neck. I then relax in the tub for another 10-15 minutes while the oatmeal acts as a mask, drying on my skin. Once the mask has dried, I rinse with warm water. Voila!
Versatile. This soak is safe for use on young infants, is excellent for soothing itchy skin for conditions like poison ivy and psoriasis, and also makes a great face mask.
