Buttermilk & Oatmeal Bath Bomb
End your day with a relaxing buttermilk and oatmeal bath. Buttermilk is high in fat and lactic acid. Both help soften and hydrate the skin. Oatmeal is a gentle exfoliant that will aid in the removal of dead skin cells. It is also soothing to itchy skin, and is said to provide relief for eczema.
To round out the skin-conditioning, I added mango butter and sunflower oil. Mango butter offers softening, soothing, and moisturizing properties. It is non-greasy and absorbs easily into the skin. Sunflower oil is high in vitamin e, a top antioxidant. It also is easily absorbed and won’t clog the pores.
Scented with chamomile essential oil, the fragrance has relaxing and sedative benefits. Chamomile is said to calm the mind as it eases anxiety, worries, and tension. Chamomile is also said to be useful in treating skin problems like dry itchy skin, rashes, and eczema.
