Ease the Itch Bath Soak


This recipe hardly needs an explanation.

Moisturizing Winter Bath Soak

  • 9 drops lavender essential oil
  • 6 drops geranium essential oil
  • 6 drops chamomile essential oil
  • 4 drops frankincense
  • 4 cups finely ground organic oats
  • 1 cup powdered milk (optional)

Where have these oils been all my life? With winter coming along, itchy, dry skin seems to be the norm in the chilly, Midwest climate. Being from the Gulf coast, it was a foreign problem to this southern girl!

Mix together and seal in a glass jar. Scoop 1/2 – 1 C. of the mixture and sprinkle under warm bath water. Soak and enjoy! You may also want to drizzle a little olive oil into the running water for extra moisture.

For trouble spots, make a paste with the damp oats and a few oils and apply generously before soaking in the tub. Also, be sure to drink plenty of fresh Spring water to stay hydrated from the inside out!
