Dreaming of a little relaxation, peace, and a warm bath? Packed with amazing skin benefits, this Chamomile 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. Joining the moisturizing advantages of this grain with the calming and soothing attributes of chamomile flowers results with even more healing benefits for your skin; not to mention upping the luxuriousness factor about a thousand times.
When I first used this oatmeal bath, it was a noisy day in our household. My 5-year-old son was fussy, cranky and miserable. I needed something to help calm him and soothe him. I blended the oatmeal and chamomile bath for him and let him soak for about 15 minutes. By the time he was dried off, he was calmed and ready for bed. I use it myself when I need some extra help getting to sleep.
The ingredients are quite simple being oatmeal, baking soda, brown sugar, and chamomile. I grow my chamomile in organic gardens using mushroom compost and purchase the baking soda, brown sugar and oatmeal at the Amish Community in nearby Scottsville, Ky.
In addition to using this Bath Soak for you and your family, it would make a lovely gift for a teacher or Mother’s Day gift! I hope you enjoy the bath soak!
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! 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.
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!
Turn off your phone, pour that drink you love, turn on your favorite music, turn your mind to the great things in life, put on a smile and most importantly: soak your cares away. Think positive, happy thoughts and relax.
