Is good for your skin! My kids have mild eczema, especially in the colder, winter months. I have found that all of the lotions containing oatmeal really work the best. We have used the Lubriderm "with premium oat extract" in the past, but it is hard to find. We recently purchased St. Ives "oatmeal & shea butter"...and it is wonderful. It smells so good, and is less expensive! Last night we tried an oatmeal bath bomb that we made. It was just an old stocking/tights leg filled with oatmeal and tied off at the end. I put it in the bath water, so they could soak in all the oatmeal goodness:) The kids also had a really fun time playing with it! Once the oatmeal soaks up all the water and gets soft, it sort of feels like one of those stress balls. We called it the "mooshy, mooshy", and they passed it around.

Here are some fun oatmeal recipes for your skin from Pioneer Thinking:

I want this Exfoliating Milk and Honey Oatmeal Soap Bar from dennisanderson:

There are lots and lots of other yummy oatmeal soaps, etc. on Etsy.

...and after a relaxing oatmeal bath, you might feel like some oatmeal cookies! Here is a recipe.
