How To Make Colloidal Oatmeal For Cheaper Than You Can Buy It

I'm pretty sure that I've mentioned it quite a few times, if I haven't, it sure seems like it since I talk about it in my daily life, but Lil' G has BAD eczema. Pair that with his horrible, limiting food allergies and the kid has the skin of a zombie alligator. Seriously it's pretty bad. He always has scabs on his legs, and little red bumps everywhere from hives, itching, or just irritated skin because he's so effin allergic to life that his skin just can't handle it. He should be in a bubble, but I refuse! 

One thing that we can never be without in our house is colloidal oatmeal for baths, but that shit's expensive, yo! For a kid that needs it almost daily, it's really not practical to buy the Aveeno colloidal oatmeal powder for bath time since he literally needs it everyday, sometimes twice. Even if you don't have skin allergies, colloidal oatmeal is just great for your skin and leaves it soft and smooth. Seriously, this is the easiest thing to make ever, and you more than likely already have everything you need in your kitchen.

You Need:

  • 1 cup unflavored rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • Blender
  1. Combine ingredients in the blender. Grind until a fine dust forms. 
  2. Dump ground contents in container with a lid. 
  3. Use as needed in a warm bath. 
Simply place a few spoonfuls in the tub and soak. You don't need to rinse it off before getting out unless you have chunks of oatmeal stuck to you. The great thing about colloidal oatmeal is that the baking soda in the mixture will help to suck out any of the toxins or puffiness in your skin while the oatmeal helps to heal cracked skin and helps to replace and repair the elasticity in your skin. 

Happy bathing, y'all! I'm out!
