These are wonderful for any rashes, irritation or dry skin issues.
I’ve used this blend for quite some time, in the Calendula Oatmeal bath blend, and the Bedtime baby blend. I love Calendula! It’s my go-to staple for all things healing. It’s gentle enough for baby & powerful enough for any skin issues.
I remember watching my friend’s son and she had told me what issues they had been having with his skin. They had tried everything and nothing would clear up these red bumps and irritation he was having. I had given her some of the Baby Bedtime Bath Blend, but she hadn’t tried it yet.
His Gramma and I were on bath duty and I decided to find the jar and make him a scrubby with it. We didn’t have any organza bags so we found a face cloth, poured some of the mix in the center and tied the top with an elastic. We used it like a wash cloth, paying special attention to any irritation and even rung out some of the mixture to get more healing power. Even it just sitting in the tub water can help tremendously.
The next day she said to me, I don’t know what you did but his skin has cleared right up! 🙂
Natural healing for the win! 😉
- Epsom Salts
- Baking Soda
- Calendula Petals
- Calendula Petals
(If your child is older, you can definitely add some salts in too.)
I usually just put a couple scoops of each into the baggie. You can also make a mason jar full to keep on hand and put a couple scoops in the bag when you need it.
The salts and baking soda will dissolve when it hits the water and blend into your bath water, which helps sooth our skin & balance pH levels. Then you’re left with an amazing little scrubby bag of oatmeal and calendula. You can also add lavender buds for a bedtime soothing bath.
Toss the whole thing into the tub to soften up the ingredients, then use as a full body scrubby, paying special attention to any problem areas.
You can find Organza baggies at the dollar store or grab them for a bargain on Amazon.ca. Alternatively, you can put some in the center of a wash cloth and tie it at top with a string or elastic.
Once you’re done with it, just turn it inside out into the compost and rinse clean.
