made at home: rosemary oatmeal bath soak

Rosemary Oatmeal Bath Soak

  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1/2 cup of oatmeal
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt 
  • 2 tablespoons of rosemary 
   Mix all ingredients together in a medium sized jar (or bowl). Run a warm bath and pour the ingredients in the tub while the water is running. For less of a clean-up, combine the ingredients in a large tea bag or sock, and squeeze throughout soaking. 

   Kansas City had record-breaking lows today. This below zero degree weather is frighteningly cold, so I preferred to stay indoors as much as I could today. As most normal people do on chilly days, I decided to take a warm bath after spending some time outside this afternoon. I decided to mix together a simple bath soak, which couldn't be more relaxing. Rosemary is great for cleansing the skin without over-drying, oatmeal reduces inflammation and is good for dry skin, and honey keeps the skin smooth. I will defiantly be using this soak more often. What are your favorite bath soaks?

  5. It's been freezing here in NJ too, I can't believe how cold it is! It's times like these I wish our apartment had a bathtub, so I have to settle for a nice hot shower and dream of being able to soak in the bath. Next apartment definitely needs a tub.
