About this recipe:
- Stays fresh in a sealed container at room temperature
Here’s what you’ll need…
- 1 c. organic rolled oats
- ¼ c. Epsom salt
- 1 TBSP baking soda
- Using the small bowl attachment of a food processor, blend oats for a full two minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to un-clump/scrape the sides with a clean spatula. Oats should turn into a powder-like substance. Add Epsom salt and baking soda, then blend for another full minute. Store in an airtight container.
- Draw a warm bath and dissolve the oat mixture into it. Soak for 15-20 mins.
Note: If your processor is unable to blend/pulverize the oats into a fine powder, you may end up with a bit of grainy residue. This is perfectly fine, but you may want to strain it out of the tub rather than have it go down the drain. Or use a sachet to distribute the skin soothing oatmeal bath soak.
