- Take two cups of raw, uncooked oatmeal and pour into a tepid to warm bathtub. Oatmeal contains healing properties and serves as an exfoliator and moisturizer.
- Add one cup of whole milk to the water. Since milk is full of proteins and vitamins A, D, and E, it has strong soothing properties.
- Add one tablespoon of honey to the bath. Honey is high in vitamins B, C, D, and E and is a natural antiseptic salve for the skin.
- Soak in the tub for five to 10 minutes. Rinse off, take a sigh of relief, and gently pat your body dry.
