A few years back, myself and my husband lived in the basement of my sister and her husbands house, while we where saving up to get married/buy a house of our own and besides the space issues of living in a basement with your husband, two cats, dog and a turtle, those years where actually a lot of fun . One major plus of living with them was the fact that they had renovated their upstairs bathroom and placed in this beautiful jetted soaker tub and boy do I miss that!! Baths are one of my favorite things and since buying our little starter home, I haven't been able to enjoy them, mainly because our tub is just not a joy to sit in...I can't wait for our bathroom reno this summer so I can actually enjoy this Coconut Bath Soak all of the time!!!! On the rare occasion where a bath is just calling my name, usually when I'm not feeling well and in those cold cold winter months, this is my go to soak, it leaves your skin feeling so soft and hydrated. It's also the best to add into your babies or child's bath water.
This is actually a product I had indented to sell, but once I decided to lean more towards teaching I thought this would be such a great one to do. Because its two ingredients and makes the MOST hydrating bath, for the whole family.
The Coconut Bath Soak has two simple ingredients - Coconut Milk Powder + Colloidal Oatmeal.
Where can I purchase these items?
You can find the colloidal oatmeal in our raw ingredients shop. We will have the coconut milk powder eventually, but for now you can purchase it at Bulk Barn.
And why do these two ingredients make for such a glorious bathing experience you ask??
Oats are great at soothing- they are anti-inflammatory, and help to ease itchiness and redness. Which make them the perfect choice for your calming bath. Soft and gentle enough to add into the water of your children's bath, it will also combat skin irritation from sunburns and bug bites. Not only that, but if you live in a cold climate its amazing at re hydrating dry skin, as it exfoliates and cleanses...goodbye dry, scaly winterpeg skin!!!
Coconut Milk Powder also has anti-inflammatory properties and is filled with nutrients that help nourish and hydrate your skin. That and it just smells amazing!!! Its a great addition to your bath soaks and body scrubs.
DIY Coconut Milk Bath Soak
1 Cup Colloidal Oatmeal
2 Cups Coconut Milk Powder
Mix both ingredients in a bowl and then store your new ultra-nourishing coconut bath soak in a cute jar.
To Use: I like to use about a 1/4 cup in warm running bath water and then using your hand just gently move your bath water around to make sure the powder is dissolving.
Let me know how you like your new bath soak. And let me know in the comments what other sorts of DIY recipes you'd live to see here.
Until next time, xoxo Amber
