Oats are remarkably cleansing. With healing, anti – inflammatory , softening & moisturizing properties, they are also high in silica & making them  great for skin, nails & hair. For years professionals have heralded oats as the cleansing grain therefore recommending using  oats for irritated, sensitive skin. Keep a jar of fine oatmeal near your sink, shower or bath & use it daily to cleanse every inch of your body. A couple of drops of lavender essential oil added to the mix will keep it fragrant. You can also wrap a handful of oats in a piece of muslin ( cheesecloth) and use as a wash ball on babies tender skin ……. they will love it.


Simply soak 1/2 cup of almond meal/oatmeal or a combination of both in 1/2 cup of  **milk ( suited to your skin type – see below ) overnight. Use the mix to cleanse your face in the morning. Both combinations are very cleansing, hydrating and will keep the skin blemish free.
