HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN
OATMEAL BATH BAGS
Now, you can use oatmeal on its own, and receive all of the same benefits. But let’s talk about why bath bags are a much more convenient way to utilize the power of oatmeal.
Well, if you have ever made oatmeal a part of your skin regiment, you know how crazy messy it is to use and how those pesky oats like to stick to your skin.
When placed in water, the pores of the muslin bag allow that beautiful white oatmeal residue to mix with your bath water, creating a milky hue.
Not only is the bathwater itself beneficial, but you can rub the bag all over your body and face for even more intense treatment.
All right, let’s get to it!
Ingredients & Materials
1 Muslin Bag
½ of Cup of Oatmeal
Now, besides its health benefits, oatmeal has a plethora of other rewards. Due to its saponin content, it works as a natural skin cleanser and it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. The proteins and lipids in oatmeal make it an effective moisturizer and improve skin tone and texture. It also functions as a natural exfoliant and absorbs oils.
Essential Oil I Like To Use Is:
Lavender essential oil
Rosemary essential oil
Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender can induce calm and relaxation. It’s an antioxidant and so supports the skin against wrinkles. It’s antibacterial and antifungal- making it a great intervention for acne-prone skin. It promotes blood circulation and supports against inflammation.
Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary supports blood circulation, is antibacterial, and can reduce stress and anxiety.
First, scoop out ½ a cup of oatmeal and place it in your muslin bag.
Then, add 3 drops of lavender and 3 drops of rosemary essential oil.
Finally, if you’d like, add- 1 Tbsp of dried lavender, chamomile, or rosemary.
Tie the muslin bag tight and place it in bathwater.
Remember, keep your bath bags in a cool, dry space. I recommend only using the muslin bag once.
It’s just that easy!
