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.

Tried this last night and it worked wonders for my scalp psoriasis. I'll be using it again. Just be sure if you have a shower/bath combo that you're careful when you next step into the shower--the oil makes the tub surface slippery.
