DIY Coconut & Oatmeal Milk Bath

milk bath

 

Whether you suffer from severely dry skin or are just looking for a soothing, vegan alternative to those mainstream milk baths, this just might be the recipe for you!

We chose coconut milk as an alternative to buttermilk or goats milk because not only does it smell better, but it also has a ton of benefits. Coconut milk not only contains multiple vitamins such as vitamins C, E, B6, and iron, but it also is chock full of unsaturated fatty acids that are great for moisturizing and softening the skin. You can also use it as an anti-inflammatory or anti-bacterial aid due to the lauric acid.

It doesn’t stop there! The colloidal or ground oatmeal, depending on what you have on hand, contains lipids that also nourish and replenish lost oils in your skin. This quality makes it a wonderful, natural moisturizer. It also consists of avenanthramides, an anti-oxidant property to keep your skin safe from environmental baddies, and saponins, which greatly help in cleansing, meaning you use less of those harsh soaps. Another great benefit of oats is that they also relieve inflammation and can soothe itchy skin.

 

What Will You Need?

  • A bowl for mixing
  • Sifter (Optional)
  • Whisk (if you don’t have one, just use your hands!
  • Coffee grinder (if you don’t have colloidal oatmeal, you can make your own ground oats)
  • Container for storage

Ingredients For 2 Milk Baths:

  • 1 Cup of Coconut Milk Powder
  • 1 Cup of Colloidal (or ground) oatmeal
  • 20 drops of lavender essential oil (but you can choose whatever scent you like!)

Instructions:

  1. If you’re not using colloidal oatmeal, then the first step is to ground your oats
  2. Sift coconut milk powder (or work out lumps with your hands), but don’t go too crazy as it will dissolve in your bath anyhow
  3. Add all of your ingredients into your bowl and stir
  4. Mix in the essential oil of your choosing
  5. Load into an airtight container
  6. In warm bath water, add 4-5 tablespoons and stir with your arm
  7. Sit back and relax!
