Oatmeal Treasures

By Jeanne Wolfley

Have you ever had a rash or itchy skin? Is your skin dry? Well, if you are like me you have tried a lot of products to help solve this problem. You can only slather so much cream on your body and then it’s time to take action.

Blend ¼ cup oatmeal in the blender and wrap it tightly into cheese cloth. Place in bath tub and run your water. Give the satchel a squish to make water silky. You’re not done yet! Add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and have a nice soak – relax and enjoy!

Honestly, this is the best cure I have found for dry, itchy skin. Be careful getting out of the tub because of the oil. If you don’t like the idea of putting oil in the bath, you could bath in the oatmeal and rub your body with a moistening lotion. When finished, wash the tub down with a little liquid soap and it’s good to go for next time.
