No need to pay the price for the oatmeal bath packets at the pharmacy. You can make your own easily! Works great for eczema, psoriasis, poison ivy, chicken pox, etc.

Ingredients

1
old sock, or nylon knee high
1
rubberband
1 c
oatmeal
1 c
baking soda
2 tsp
coconut oil or olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the oatmeal in the sock/nylon. Fit the opening of the sock over the faucet of your bathtub. Secure with a rubber band. Run a warm bath through the oameal in the sock, occasionally squeezing the sock to release as much of the oatmeal starch as possible into your bath water. While water is running, add the other ingredients. Soak for 30 min.

Marilyn...I don't rinse. That residue is remnants of all the good itch-relief products. It absorbs quickly once you're dried off from your bath and is nourishing for your skin:)

Elizabeth...glad you enjoyed your bath! It is so soothing...hope you get some lasting relief from it!

I'm trying this right now! A few days ago I was attacked by a swarm of mosquitos. I look and feel like I have the chicken pox. The water is so soothing and soft. I can't wait to see how long the itch relief lasts.
And I will also use this for future excema outbreaks! Mine shows up randomly as well, and I haven't found at relief for it yet. But I'm sure this will be the ticket!

This sounds like a really silly question, but do you rinse off the residue the oatmeal leaves? I assume so...

So glad you got some relief! I totally relate to the suffering brought on by out of control eczema. It has waxed and waned my entire life, sometimes practically disappearing altogether for months or even years and sometimes SO bad that it's completely miserable. In those cases ANY relief is welcome and I'm glad this gave you some!
