Naturally Soothing Baby Bath

When my infant son was cranky or overly tired, or if his tender skin was a little rashy, I used this wonderful two-ingredient formula in a warm bath and it never failed to soothe him in every way. Older children, teens, and adults find it beneficial, too!

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
3 drops lavender essential oil

1. Use a cotton handkerchief, a muslin tea-bag, or even the foot of a clean pair of old pantyhose to hold the formula. Sprinkle the lavender oil on the oats and place on the handkerchief, or in the teabag or pantyhose. Tie tightly closed with a rubber band or string.

2. The oats will release a silky milky fluid that will permeate the tub. After it has been thoroughly wetted, the bath packet may be used like a washcloth to rub soothing oats all over the skin.

This is quiet a post. I like it most because as parents are mostly worried about exposing their child to toxic chemicals and irritable skin soaps any longer, this mild and safe cleanser will naturally wash their baby with the organic coconut and aloe vera.
