      1 c. corn starch
      2 c. powdered milk
      1/2 c. baking soda
      1/2 c. oatmeal, ground finely (I do mine in the blender:))

      Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. You can add a drop or two of essential oil if you wish (just be sure to mix it well). Place in jar. To use, add about 3 tablespoons to bath.

      This makes a nice gift 🙂

      This is very soothing. It’s very good for sunburn. Thanks

      Youre welcome. It also works great for chicken pox. I put some in an old pair of knee high panty hose and let my d scrub with it when she had them. She loved her bath and it was safe for her when she stuck it in her mouth 🙂

      oh i know!! the boxes if a 6 pack is like 8 dollars! my husband laughs at me because he’ll tell me to go splurge on something for me, and only me.. so i come home with a pack of pantyhose and 2 big canisters of oatmeal and unscented bath salts and epsom salts so i can make my own bath stuffs.. he just laughs and says “at least i know you won’t send me to the poor house from shopping.” LOL!!

      I am diabetic, and naturally have dry skin, but I also live in an area with very bad water, so my skin is extra extra dry, even to the point of splitting now and then. My question is, would the baking soda in this make my skin even dryer? I hope not, cause this sounds absolutely fabulous!

      i use just oatmeal in an old pair of panty hose sometimes. the oatmeal feels amazing on dry skin.. i love it. i don’t think the baking soda would be drying. but it could do something with the water.. like have a drying effect.. but try it! ya never know!

      If you do have bad water, the baking soda might help-would make the water softer if it is hard. I have a son with Eczema to the point his skin cracks on his hands sometimes, the oatmeal and baking soda seem to really help him as a preventive. I don’t use the baking soda for him if his skin is cracked because it might sting some.

      mardhines, I have used it without the baking soda and it seems to work just as well.

      I, too, have used plain oatmeal. It does feel so good on dry skin. It also works well as a facial mask. Just apply, wait 10-15 mins. & wash off. Feels wonderful. Oatmeal is good for you inside and out!
