  • 1 cup regular oats
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • 1/8 cup dried lavender


  • In a grinder or food processor, grind the oats and lavender together until you reach your desired texture. (I like to leave some of the oats intact to help exfoliate but it does make for a messier bathtub.)
  • Mix the baking soda into the oatmeal until combined. Toss in a jar and tighten the lid until you’re ready to use it!


And of course, you can easily sub in lavender essential oil in place of dried if you don’t have any on hand. Depending on your brand, 5-8 drops should give enough of a scent but add as many as you wish.
