With its mild soothing and cleansing properties, oatmeal is one of the best cheap ingredients that you should always have in your beauty pantry. I’ve previously written about oatmeal’s properties, with a few recipes, but there are so many great recipes out there apart from these. That’s why I decided to gather a few from some of my other favorite green bloggers.

When using oatmeal in the bath or shower, these little sachets are really nifty as you don’t have to worry about clogging your drain and messing up your bathroom. Also, you can use them to scrub your face or body and get an exfoliation as an added bonus!
