Oatmeal and Milk Bath Sachets

Rachel Bruner
This is a fun activity for making oatmeal and milk bath sachets that comes with several different patterns. They also make great gifts!

Preparation: Open and print the sachets you wish to use. To make 12 sachets you will need:
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 2 cups powdered milk
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • optional scents
Directions: Cut out sachets, don’t cut off the bottom flap! #1 Fold the two side flaps and the bottom flap to create the back of the sachet. Add a light layer of glue to the side flaps and press to back flap, creating the sachet. WAIT until the glue is DRY before filling. #2 When filled fold top flap and add a light layer of glue to close sachet.

Recipe: Put 1/2 cup oatmeal in a blender and mix until finely ground. Add 2 cups powdered milk and blend until the consistency is a fine powder. Add 1 cup cornstarch and 1/2 cup baking soda, mix (don’t use blender!) well. Place 3 tablespoons in each sachet. Makes approximately 12 sachets.

Notes:
  • For additional scents you can add a few drops of body oil (such as vanilla, lavender, etc.) be careful of any allergies to such oils/scents!
  • I prefer to use a glue stick as it dries quickly and is not too messy!
