Herbal Bath Soak

Herbal Bath Soak

If you’ve been reading my columns lately, I’m sure you can tell that I’m always searching for ways to use the things growing around me. I’ve found a new recipe that I’d love to share! It’s for a bath soak that is simple, perfect for self-care days, and makes a great gift!

Ingredients:
– An air-tight container
– Enough oatmeal to fill your chosen container
– Dried herbs like lavender, calendula, mint, lemon balm, chamomile,
lemongrass, rose petals, bee balm, or anything else you can find

Instructions:
– Place your oatmeal in a food processor and process until it
becomes a powder flour-like consistency.
– Transfer processed oatmeal into a large bowl.
– Crumble your dried flowers/herbs into the oatmeal and
combine with a spoon. Add as much or as little as you’d like!
– Transfer the combination to an air tight container.

To use: run a hot bath and sprinkle a generous amount of your new bath soak into the running water. Sit back, soothe your skin, and enjoy!
