If your suffering from an itchy skin rash do to poison ivy, the chicken pox or an allergic reaction you can help soothe it away naturally with a homemade oatmeal bath soak. Oatmeal bath soaks are very easy to make and very nourishing and soothing to itchy skin because oats contains nutrients in it that skin needs to repair itself naturally.
To make a homemade oatmeal bath soak all you do is place 4 cups of rolled oats into a puree machine and grind the oats into a fine powder. Once you have a fine powder you can add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil into it. I prefer to use chamomile with oatmeal because chamomile helps cleanse and soothes the skin, however if your allergic to ragweed you shouldn’t use chamomile because it is related to ragweed.
Anyways, once you have combined the ground oats with the essential oil you can pour it into a warm bath and allow it to dissolve into the water creating a foamy fill on top of the bath. Once the oats have dissolves into the water you should get into it and soak for as long as you can to help draw the toxins out of your skin and body that is causing the rash. After you are done soaking in the bath, pat the skin dry, apply an anti-itch cream to the skin to help protect and prevent further itching and discomfort. You may take a homemade oatmeal bath as often as you need to in order to keep skin soothed throughout the day or night naturally.
