Upon brainstorming about what will be my next DIY natural skin care tutorial, I decided to go with a beneficial and useful bath soak.
One that uses real dried flowers. One that has relaxing properties because let’s face it. We all can use a little relaxation in our day to day lives.
And one that is super good for the skin.
I came up with the main ingredients of chamomile, lavender, and oatmeal.
Chamomile is one of the best therapeutic herbs out there. It’s always my go-to herb when I’m in need of a destresser or relaxer.
The most common benefits of chamomile are its ability to soothe muscles, treat skin irritations, and promote healthy sleep.
I add in lavender for the floral aromatherapy benefits. I LOVE the way lavender smells and I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t like lavender.
Not only does lavender smell amazing, but it also has calming properties that pair well with chamomile.
Let’s talk oatmeal for the skin. I can go on and on about all the skin benefits oatmeal contains. This is why you find it a common ingredient in bath products such as bath bombs and soaks.
Oats have the ability to soften and moisturize your skin which decreases dry itchy skin. It also helps build your skin wall to promote healthy happy skin in the future.
So all in all, this recipe has the perfect combination of herbs and essential oils. I like to call this Chamomile Lavender & Oatmeal Bath Soak Recipe, therapy dust.

- 1 cup Epsom Salt
- 1 cup Oatmeal, blended
- 4 tbsp Dried Chamomile Flowers
- 3 tbsp Dried Lavender Buds
- 12 drops Chamomile Essential Oil
- 12 drops Lavender Essential Oil
In a bowl, combine Epsom salt, oatmeal, dried chamomile flowers, and dried lavender buds.
If your chamomile flowers have stems, clip them off. It’s not fun to lay in a bath with pokey stems.
Stir in the chamomile and lavender essential oils.
It’s as easy as that!
Store in an airtight container. I like to use glass mason jars.
Since most of the ingredients in this recipe are dried, the shelf life is forever.
