Homemade Oatmeal Bath Soak

It’s getting colder, which means that the air is becoming more dry. Naturally, all of this dry air, combined with wearing extra layers, often leaves skin feeling dry and itchy. And that is why I make this homemade oatmeal bath soak.

How to keep your skin healthy and pampered in the cold season?

Oatmeal is made of fats and sugars (polysaccharides) that re-hydrate skin and create a gelatinous film barrier of protection.

Lavender is also well known as a soother for dry, itchy, and irritated skin. I chose to add lavender essential oil and a few lavender flowers . The smell of the two together just can’t be beat! However, the lavender flowers are totally optional as the lavender essential oil can achieve a wonderful scent on its own.

Homemade Oatmeal Bath Soak with Lavender

Ingredients & Supplies

  • 1 cup rolled oats – quick oats will also work
  • 6 drops lavender essential oil (find more about Lavebder here)
  • a few lavender flowers, optional
  • medium sized bowl and spoon
  • large sock or muslin bag


  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine oats and optional lavender flowers. Stir well.
  2. Add essential oil. Stir well.
  3. Using a large spoon, add oatmeal bath to the sock or muslin bag.
  4. Secure the top of your sock with a knot or a rubber band, or tie your muslin bag tightly.
    • Don’t have a sock or muslin bag? Try using a coffee filter, secured with a rubber band.
  5. Draw yourself a HOT bath and place the sock or bag in the tub. The heat will help to activate the oats.
  6. Let the bath cool until it is safe enough to enjoy.
  7. Soak as long as you like and repeat if necessary.

This bath soak also makes wonderful gifts! Simply package in a mason jar with a few sprigs of lavender and you’ll give the gift of relaxation to your loved one

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
