I made this for my mother-in-law's Mother's Day gift.
I just tried it (5/18/17). It seemed to help with my sun burn. It was very soothing. Normally a sunburn, like what I had, would cause enough damage to make my skin peel about week later, but with the help of this healing soak my nose didn't peel at all! I was definitely grateful for that. :)
Lavender Oatmeal Soak Recipe1 cup Epsom salt
1 cup oatmeal, ground in a blender until fine powder
1/2 cup baking soda
10 drops tea tree essential oil
15 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil
Mix well until the oils have been thoroughly distributed and blended. I used my food processor to make sure it was mixed well.
Store in a jar or container.
For a calming and relaxing bath stir 1 cup of mixture into a warm bath. Soak for 20-30 minutes.
