Soothing Oat-Milk Bath Soak
Oatmeal and milk are go-tos for body and mind relaxation (oatmeal baths are an old remedy for itchy skin, such as from poison ivy). But don’t forget the garnishes: Lavender and cinnamon help fight bacteria and stimulate blood circulation, bringing nutrients and oxygen to skin’s surface to help eliminate blemishes and relieve irritation.
1 cup oats
1 cup dried milk
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons dried lavender
Pulse oats in a blender or food processor until they form a slightly coarse powder. Add dried milk, cinnamon, and lavender, pulsing until all ingredients are thoroughly blended into a fine powder. Add desired amount to your bath and soak for at least 20 minutes.
