This easy-to-make bath bag nourishes and softens winter-weary skin in the most delicious way.
It calls for two common kitchen-cupboard ingredients: one provides gentle exfoliation to banish dead flaky skin cells, and the other soothes and softens.
Fun to use, too!
1/4 cup ground oatmeal
1/4 cup ground sunflower seeds
1. Place ingredients in the toe of an old stocking, or in the center of an 8×8 square of muslin, cheese cloth, or cotton (old, worn handkerchiefs work well). Gather into a pouch and tie with a short string.
2. As you relax in the tub, gently rub your entire body with the bag, then let it remain in the water releasing its softening properties. Discard bag when finished, or scrape used ingredients into the compost and wash fabric to use again.
