Soothing Oat Bath Salts
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 Jarsr. They just need to be printed on a sticky paper – we like our Waterproof Labels.
