DIY Colloidal Oatmeal Bath Recipe
This soothing oatmeal bath is a science-backed and easy to use home remedy for itchy, dry, or even eczema-prone skin
Run the oats and herbs through a coffee grinder or food processor in batches until they’re a very fine powder.
If using the essential oils, add this to some of the ground oats and grind to combine.
Combine the oats, baking soda, and herbs together in a glass jar.
To use, dump the jar’s contents into warm water. If the oats aren’t super fine, then put them into a panty hose leg and steeped in the bath water before taking your soak. This prevents the bottom of the tub from getting yucky.
Soak for about 15-20 minutes in a warm bath, not piping hot water. Hot water and/or a long soak can cause the skin to dry out further and cause more skin irritation.
Pat the skin dry once you get out.
