Soothing Oat Bath Saltshttps://www.brambleberry.com/in-the-studio/projects/body-care/soothing-oat-bath-salts/PS000058.html
The recipe is easy to make, so it’s a great gift for the holidays. First, colloidal oatmeal is added to the Epsom salt and mixed in thoroughly. Then, the liquid ingredients are mixed together and added to the dry. To use, add several tablespoons of the salt mixture directly to hot bath water. It can also be used as a body scrub.
The oat oil in this recipe is rich in fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamin E. It leaves skin feeling moisturized.
If you’d like to give this recipe as a gift, the Soothing Oat Bath Salts Digital Labels give the 8 oz. Lidded Glass Jars a finishing touch. The labels can be cut shorter for smaller options like the 4 oz. Lidded Glass Jars or the Short 8 oz. Plastic Bail Jars. They just need to be printed on a sticky paper – we like our Waterproof Labels.

Soothing Oat Bath Salts
Oatmeal baths are known for their soothing properties. This recipe has skin-loving ingredients like Epsom salt and oat extract.
Three 8 oz. Lidded Glass Jars
Oat Bath Salt Labels
32 oz. Epsom Salt, Extra Fine
1 oz. Colloidal Oatmeal
1 oz. Oatmeal
0.5 oz. Oat Oil
0.5 oz. Oat Extract
0.5 oz. Polysorbate 80
0.5 oz. Oatmeal Milk and Honey Fragrance Oil
In a large bowl, mix together 32 ounces of extra fine Epsom salt and 1 ounce of colloidal oatmeal. Use your hands or a whisk to mix and break up the clumps.
In a separate bowl, add 0.5 ounces of oat oil, 0.5 ounces of Oatmeal Milk and Honey Fragrance Oil, 0.5 ounces of oat extract, and 0.5 ounces of polysorbate 80. Use a spoon to mix together all the ingredients. Note: The polysorbate 80 is an emulsifier that helps the oil mix into the bath water rather than pooling on top. It can be left out of the recipe, but be careful exiting the tub as the oil will make it slippery.
Pour the oil mixture into the salt mixture. Use your hands or a large spatula to thoroughly mix.
Add 1 ounce of oatmeal. We used quick oats, but traditional oatmeal works as well. Note: The oatmeal is more for aesthetic purposes. It can be left out of the recipe if you are concerned with it clogging your drain.
Spoon the mixture into jars. To use, add several large tablespoons of the salt into a hot bathtub. It can also be used as a scrub. Enjoy. Note: Because this recipe does not contain water, we did not use a preservative. If you’re concerned with it coming in contact with water, you can use an oil-soluble preservative like Optiphen.
