Bath Recipe of the month - Sunflower Soak
Cooler weather brings heated homes which results in dry and irritated skin. This recipe will help you soothe away itches and rejuvenate you. The seasonal scents will help bring out your holiday spirit.
All you need to make this is a food grinder or food processor. You can whip this up in a few minutes. Sunflower seed powder can go rancid, so do not blend up too much in advance.
Yield: 4 ounces, enough for one bath
1/4 cup shelled, raw unsalted or roasted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil
In a coffee grinder or food processor, grind sunflower seeds and oatmeal until you have a smooth
powder the consistency of whole-grain flour. Stir in spices and vitamin E oil and mix well. Store
mixture in an airtight container.
To use: Pour bath soak into a warm tub of water and stir well to mix. Moisturize your skin after bathing with some sunflower oil or a rich cream.
