Oatmeal-Lavender Bath for Eczema and Itchy Skin

Oatmeal-Lavender Bath for Eczema and Itchy Skin | Aiane Karla

It’s been a dry and hot summer here in San Diego. A couple posts ago, I wrote about my recent struggles with eczema. Switching to a fully gluten-free and vegan diet has been a little helpful, but the summer heat has been exacerbating my skin’s itchiness. A couple weeks ago, the eczema spots on my back became rough and dry, so I started looking for natural remedies to soothe my skin.

My dermatologist recommended I try an oatmeal bath to help calm my skin and reduce the itchiness, so I went to our local health food store and bought a packet of oatmeal-lavender bath. The packet listed three ingredients: rolled oats, lavender flowers, and lavender essential oil. I figured it would be easy to make my own oatmeal-lavender bath and decided to give it a try.

I was quite amazed by the outcome! My Vitamix dry blade blender smelled heavenly after blending the dry ingredients. And better yet? My skin was so smooth and soft after my bath!

Do you know anyone suffering from eczema or itchy skin? Why not share this natural remedy recipe with them?

    I used oatmeal for poison ivy before. I also used lavender in a bath to help my children relax before bedtime. I haven’t used lavender and oatmeal together before but I can see where this combination would work!

    Thanks for the heads up about the mess. I don’t have a cheese cloth so grinding the ingredients are a better options for me.
