Oatmeal & Cinnamon Bath Soak - Bath Blend of the Month

Soothing oatmeal, milk and cornstarch will help with dry windblown skin.  Cinnamon is naturally warming.  Together this blend will soothe and warm and is perfect for winter weather.

Oatmeal & Cinnamon

1 1/2 cups powdered milk
3/4 cup baking soda
3/4 cup oatmeal (finely grind it first)
3 Tbls cornstarch
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp cinnamon

Before getting started, make sure that any herbs or oatmeal are first ground finely (use a food processor if possible). This helps keep things clump free.  Then blend the ingredients together and keep in a jar with a tight fitting lid.  Use a muslin bag or square of cotton cloth to hold the herbs for use in the bath.

To USE:  Place ½ cup of mixture in a cloth bath and suspend in the tub while filling with water.  Use the bag to scrub body while soaking.  Discard herbs after bath.
