I'm still looking for good uses of Epsom salt and this Epsom salt dip dip with honey and oats is so perfect for soothing the skin and calming the body for a hot bath.
Enjoy the nourishing side of soaking in oats (instead of eating them)! Old-fashioned oats have long been used to help soothe irritated skin or for a bit of relief for people with mild rashes and eczema, and raw honey
in this soaking brings antibacterial properties as well as healing the skin to help brighten and soften it.
Epsom salt will attract toxins from your skin and relax sore muscles at the same time.
All in all, it's a very nice way to spend part of your evening!
That's enough for 2-3 baths so you can share it for yourself or give it as a gift to friends. You can use pretty little jars with a ribbon around them or pour it into a muslin bag
which they can throw directly into the bath or empty into the water.
There is nothing like a good Epsom salt bath to detoxify and relax the body and the addition of oats and honey really gives this recipe Epsom salt soaking a special touch.
It seems like a lot of people are skipping the tub in favor of the shower these days. It is nice to take a moment to take a relaxing bath – it helps to heal the body but also gives you a chance to think quietly.

1 cup oats 4 to 6 tablespoons raw honey 1/3 cup optional Epsom salt 4 to 8 drops of essential oil
1. Start by adding the cup of oats to your blender, grinder or food processor and break them until they become a finer powder. I have done this pretty well as it just helps to wash the drain at the end of the bath and there is almost nothing to wipe or clean after the bath. You can certainly leave them whole or break them down less if you prefer.
2. Leaving the oats or powdered oats in the blender starting to add the honey, I did it little by little. My goal was the friable ball look you see here in the fourth image (not a paste). I ended up adding 6 tablespoons, there was a big difference in appearance between the 3rd and 4th tablespoons, so add as much as you want.
3. Once you have reached this crumbled stage with oats and honey, add the Epsom salt and quickly pulse or relight for a few seconds to mix everything, you don't really need to break up the salt and it looks pretty whole. You can enjoy it immediately or store it in an airtight container until you are ready to use it.
