I wanted to share my very simple, and very cheap oat sock bath / bath infusion recipe with you.
It is super easy and great for all skin types, from new-born to adults.
Our oat bath recipe is especially good for newborn babies’ delicate skin, expecting mums, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, sensitive skin, rashes, bites, chicken pox, hand foot and mouth, sun burn and much more.
So, let’s get started...
You will need:
Oats (Just normal oats, not the instant oats)
A sock (a good length one not a pop sock)
Optional - Unrefined Cocoa butter buttons (link added here but you can use any)
Simply add a large handful of oats to your sock
Then, add 1 cocoa butter button to the sock (optional)
Lastly, tie the sock tight
Yes, its that simple!
Add your oat sock/ bath infusion to the bath and then run the water (If you add it to an already filled bath it will take longer for the coca butter button to melt)
The more you squeeze the sock the more silky goodness you get
You can rub the sock all over your body like a sponge
Once finished, empty the remaining contents into the bin and wash your sock as usual
If you don’t like the idea of using socks, you can buy small cotton pouches which are great and reusable. I have added a link here for an example, but you can use any
Oat milk is a natural cleanser so there is no need for babies or small children to use any added soap when in the bath.
If your budget doesn’t stretch enough to get the cocoa butter buttons that’s fine you can just use the oats
Alternatively, if you want to jazz it up a little to create a bath infusion, then some other suggested things you can add are: Lavender buds, Chamomile flowers and rose petals.
Let me know how you get on x
