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.

The Toxin Terminator
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.
