Everyday Luxury: Lavender-Oatmeal Bath Soak

You don’t need fancy soaps and serums to create a luxurious and relaxing experience. This Lavender-Oatmeal Bath Soak is simple, inexpensive, and packed with amazing skin benefits.

Oats help soothe and repair dry, itchy, and irritated skin, making them a staple in many all-natural beauty products. Epsom salt helps relieve tension in muscles and Tea Tree offers all-natural, gentle cleansing. Lavender and Frankincense essential oils create a relaxing and spiritually uplifting atmosphere and can even help enhance the look of healthy skin.

DIY Lavender-Oatmeal Bath Soak Recipe


  • 1 cup Epsom salt

  • 1 cup quick oats

  • 1/2 cup baking soda

  • 5 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

  • 10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil

  • 15 drops Lavender Essential Oil


  1. Grind oats in a food processor or coffee grinder into a fine flour-like texture.

  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until oils are evenly distributed.

  3. Store in a glass jar and use about 1 cup of mixture per bath.

Pro Tip: Create a pouch for your mixture using a sock or pantyhose to reduce floating oatmeal flakes in your bath.

Foot Soak Adjustment: Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the mixture in a large basin of water.
