The Benefits of Oatmeal
Hey there,

If you have ever taken a look at all of 
the bath and body products at your local 
drugstore, then you’ve probably seen a lot 
that contain oatmeal. 

That’s because it’s considered to be nature’s 

But before you go rubbing some of the 
quick-cooking oats that you probably have 
in your pantry all over your body, you should
know they are different than what we’re talking 

Colloidal oatmeal is what the Food and Drug 
Administration (FDA) approves as a natural way 
to treat dry skin. This is a finely ground powder
from natural oats that dissolves in water.

Especially if you have eczema, which is an 
extreme, medically diagnosed form of dry skin. 

So if your skin needs a little moisturizing, then 
keep reading to learn about ways to use colloidal 
oatmeal as part of your natural skincare routine!

If you decide to use freshly ground, colloidal 
oatmeal, then here’s an idea to use it as an 
all-over body scrub. 

Just mix some up with locally-sourced, organic honey, 
add some water and then apply it to your clean skin, 
focusing on areas that are extremely dry such as your 
elbows and knees. Massage it in for about a minute, 
and then rinse off with warm water and pat dry. 

You can use it on your face, too. Apply the same 
mixture to your freshly-cleansed skin, massaging 
it for about a minute and then rinse off. 

If the bottom of your feet, especially your soles, 
often get dry then this is a great way to soften them 
up. Simply use the same mixture while holding it over 
a foot bath. 

You can also prepare some ahead of time and put it in 
a jar, then leave it on your skin. Simply use it as a 
hand scrub every time you wash up. 

Soap and water can actually dry out your skin, so use it 
as often as possible. 

Making your own skincare products can be easy 
and fun plus you now know all the ingredients!

These are just a few ways to use all-natural, colloidal 
oatmeal as part of your skincare routine.

honey as part of your natural skincare routine!

Adrenal Support

As we discuss recharging our bodies, I have to tell you that using these two essential oils have been a lifesaver for my adrenals!!  I find nutmeg to irritate my skin on it's own, so I use a bit of coconut oil.  Apply 1-2 drops of NUTMEG over adrenals (found on mid back just about an inch on either side of your spine) first thing in the morning.  I then apply a drop of ENDOFLEX over my thyroid and a drop or two over my adrenals as well!  Check out the picture below. The adrenal glands are the yellow on top of the kidneys.   Need to get some of these oils?  CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED
