Herbal Bath Soak for Dry Skin


Thanks goodness that Spring is here!!! It was a really long winter for me and my poor skin suffered big time.  I have been using this DIY bath soak blend a few times per week and it has really soothed my body.  I gently dry brush before I soak in the tub and I always use warm (NOT HOT) water for about 30 minutes.  I also massage my Super Silky Sunflower & Wild Chamomile Body Oil over my entire body as soon as I get out of the bath. You can get the recipe for it HERE.

This recipe uses dried flowers and herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs. I have provided links and information about each herb.  It is no surprise that I highly recommend Mountain Rose Herbs for just about everything!! They really are an amazing company!!!

 You need 1/2 cup of dried Oatstraw Powder.  This is a gentle restorative herb for tired skin and is very soothing as a bathtub infusion. You can learn more about Avena sativa from Mountain Rose Herbs HERE.


You will need an extra large tea strainer like the one in the photo above.  A large muslin bag that can be tied is also a great option.  I purchased the metal tea strainer from Amazon and use it exclusively for bathtub treatments.

Measure out all the ingredients into your tea strainer and gently place in a tub of warm water. Soak for 30 minutes as the herbs and flowers infuse the bath water and soothe your skin. Remove strainer and compost the spent herbs and flowers.


Finish off the bath ritual by applying my Super Silky Sunflower & Wild Chamomile Body Oil. The recipe can be found HERE.
