I happen to have a lovely, smart, charming, kind, thoughtful, talented niece. She is an elementary school teacher. This year for Mother’s Day, she helped her students make a gift for their moms.
She found out that I was in need of a calm, soothing, something for the bath, to stop the heebie jeebies and itching and scratching.
She was kind and thoughtful enough to share the recipe. She calls it Oatmeal Cinnamon Milk Bath. I like to call is Miss Wilson’s Secret Soothing Bath Magic! Whatever you call it, it is amazing and smells lovely. You slip into the warm water and instantly feel grateful to bath in health and wellness.
Turn on some music, light those candles and get ready to be bathed in Grace and Goodness. Yes, that good. That wonderful. That amazing. Only takes a few moments to whip it up and the jar holds enough for several soothing baths.
Thank you Miss Wilson for sharing pure goodness and helping me heal. You are an amazing niece. I love being an Aunt. It is a sweet gig.
1 1/2 cups powdered milk, 3/4 cup baking soda, 3/4 cup finely ground oatmeal (I did that first), 3 Tablespoons cornstarch, 2 teaspoons cream of tartar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix together in the food processor. Use 1/3 to 1/2 cup per bath.
