You Will Need
* A coffee grinder, blender, or food processor
* 1 c unflavored oatmeal
* A bathtub
Step 1. Grind oats
Grind oats on the highest setting of your blender, processor, or grinder.
Add a tablespoon of ground oats to a cup of warm water. If the concoction turns milky and feels silky, you've ground the oats enough.
Step 2. Fill a tub
Run a tub of warm water and sprinkle the oats over the bottom of the tub. Stir to break up any clumps.
Only use 1/3 cup oats for a baby's bath.
Step 3. Get in the tub and soak
Climb into the tub and soak for 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 4. Pat dry
Get out of the tub and pat yourself dry. Oatmeal baths can be taken twice a day or more. Let your skin celebrate!
FACT: Oatmeal has anti-inflammatory properties and has been used for centuries to soothe skin.
