"Oatmeal Cookie Bath"

Oats -are great for dry, itchy skin which is sometimes caused by eczema, skin allergies,
irritants, etc... It is rich in protein, B vitamins, and It exfoliates. This wonderful bath reduces inflammation which will keep your skin looking youthful.

Baking soda - smooths the skin, exfoliates, and kills odors. Its PH is neutral so it won't dry the skin. Baking soda cleanses away dead skin cells.

Water -keeps the skin hydrated, vibrant and clear of toxins

Vanilla- has a very soothing aroma that is calming and great for relaxation.
