You don’t need fancy soaps and serums to create a luxurious and relaxing experience. This Lavender-Oatmeal Bath Soak is   simple, inexpensive, and packed with amazing skin benefits. Oats help soothe and repair dry, itchy, and irritated skin, making them a staple in many all-natural beauty products. Epsom salt helps relieve tension in muscles and Tea Tree offers all- natural, gentle cleansing. Lavender and Frankincense essential oils create a relaxing and spiritually uplifting atmosphere and can even help enhance the look of healthy skin.
