  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Soak in the tub for five to 10 minutes. Rinse off, take a sigh of relief, and gently pat your body dry.
