Royal Oatmeal Milk Bath Sachet

I recently reintroduced these to my kid's bath and I told my daughter that she is bathing like a princess. This sparked her attention ;-) I told her about Cleopatra and queen Esther who would bathe in milk to make their skin especially beautiful and vibrant.

We do not have access to high-quality raw milk in such an abundance that I would bathe my children in it. If I could get my hand on any I would definitely not use it for cleansing! We have another natural gem: oats!

Oat on the skin? Don't they belong in a bowl with some maple syrup. That's for breakfast; before bed, we use them in the bath and here's why:

Cleansing abilities: Oats contain a saponin compound (avenacin). These saponins act as natural cleansers.

Different types of phenols in the oats exert antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.

Antiviral activity- which is a great benefit this time of year.

Moisturizing: Oats contain a high concentration of starches and beta-glucans that are responsible for their water-holding properties, keeping moisture in the skin. (Source)

The sachets contain three flowers as well:

Chamomile: According to this study components of chamomile exhibit anti-oxidant capabilities. This review states that chamomile functions as an antimicrobial, antiallergic, and anti-inflammatory. Active constituents of chamomile promote wound healing, act as moisturizing agents, diminish signs of photodamage and improve skin texture and elasticity.

Lavender: Used in traditional herbal medicine in the treatment of skin disorders, burns, wounds, and ulcers. It is a very mild plant, considered safe to use on young children and babies.

Calendula: Medicinal properties of C. officinalis have been mentioned in Ayurvedic and Unani system of medicine indicating that leaves and flowers are antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. (Source)
