Shoe String Valentinte’s Day Spa Recipe–Oatmeal Soak

Ah, nothing like a warm, soothing bath to wash away all the worries of the day. Relax your Valentine with an oatmeal bath. And don’t forget your loved one just might like a little help.

For 1 stressed, winter worn body:

1 cup oatmeal

It can be quick oats, slow cook, plain unsweetened packets, whatever–just as long as it’s oatmeal.

Pulverize it in a food processor, blender, coffee grinder, grain mill. Whatever will turn it to dust is good enough.

Pour into the tub under running water. Stir it around and add your favorite valentine. With a little candlelight, the stress will just soak away. Leave your loved one in there for no less than 15 minutes.

Afterwards, worries should be washed away, dry skin soothed and softened. Feel free to massage your loved one with a little warmed baby oil.

No oil? Even just a little cornstarch to let the hands move over the skin smoothly will work beautifully.

One warning: Your true love may just fall asleep after all this pampering.

  1. Oh, you came for a visit! Well, if you rinse the tub thoroughly right after, it’s easy. However, if you just drain the tub and let it really dry there, I think it means you get your bathroom remodeled…new tub and all.

  2. This sounds heavenly! Does it wash out of the tub easily, or is that part a labor of love?
