Now that the cold weather has arrived here in Oz, the skin on my body has become really dry and itchy. My face, on the other hand, is a different story; it seems to be drowning in the oil that seems to have disappeared from my body! While I haven’t come up with a solution for the oil slick, I have found a soothing solution for the itchy skin. This bath is also good for soothing sunburns, chickenpox and just plain old relaxing!
Place two tablespoons of oatmeal in the toe of a clean stocking and tie in a knot. Throw the bundle into your bath as the bath is running. When you hop into the bath, massage the bundle over your body, squeezing as you go. Then lie down and relax.
