Oats can be found in many skincare products. They have been clinically shown to help heal dry and itchy skin. Miss 7 has eczema and an "oat-milk bath" was recommended to us by a friend when she was younger. This is what we do....
What do you need?
Rolled oats (uncooked and not the instant stuff).
Place 1/2 cup (or more) of the oats into the sockette. Tie a knot in the sockette.
What do you do?
Place the oat-filled sockette in some water allowing the oats to soak up the water. Squeeze the sockette. Repeat until you get a milky liquid from the oats.
Miss 7 likes using oat-milk on her arms and legs. She rubs the sockette on her skin squeezing out the milk. You can generate quite a lot of oat milk from the 1/2 cup of oats. If you have more than one child in the bath with multiple sockettes, the bath gets quite milky.
When finished, discard the oats and wash out the sockette for next time.
