Last Updated on by Buayifa Ojeogwu

Today I want to show you how to make an oatmeal bath for a soothing night or morning bath.

Oatmeal is known for its moisturizing, and soothing benefits for the skin, that’s why it is a great ingredient to add to your skincare routine.

When making this oat milk bath, I added some lavender and rosebuds to give it some color, and a few drops of lavender essential oil for a calming fragrance.

But you are free to leave out any ingredient you don’t have or can’t afford at the moment, it won’t change the benefits of the oatmeal bath.

Now, make sure to scroll to the bottom to print a copy of the recipe so you can make it whenever you like.

Let’s dive in.

Like I said at the beginning of this post, you are free to leave out the lavender or rosebuds, or you can replace them with your favorite dried flowers.

Also, you can use way less Epsom salt and baking soda if you like.

One more thing, this recipe can be doubled or cut in half.

Just make it your way, and have fun.

How To Use Oat Milk Bath

  • Pour the homemade oatmeal into running bath water, then stir to distribute it evenly and to break up any lumps.
  • Now if your oatmeal is not finely ground, you can add it into a small silk drawstring bag, and steep it in your bathwater.
  • Soak in your homemade oatmilk bath for about 15 minutes or longer. I’d stay until the water is not so warm anymore, because I enjoy long baths.
  • Be careful when stepping out of your bathtub because oatmeal bathwater are more slippery than regular soap baths.
  • Make sure to use light moisturizer after soaking in an oatmeal bath. But if you prefer not to, that’s okay.
