Oatmeal Soak



(for sunburn or dry, tired skin)

1 cup oatmeal (regular - not instant)

1/2 cup powdered orrisroot

Crush oatmeal flakes a little so they will release their minerals when you add them to water. Mix with orrisroot and place in the center of a plain piece of fabric. Tie into a ball. Take the ball into the bath and, after it has soaked awhile, rub it over your skin. The ball can be used over again as many times as it seems to do its job.
