How To Make Squeezy Bath Beetles

Posted by Cathy Rennison on Monday, April 11, 2016 Under: Crafts To Do At Home

These cute little fellows are an incredibly gentle soap substitute which is not only amazingly moisturising, but also helps sooth eczema and chicken-pox! They are so mild they can be used with newborn babies and they take 2 minutes to make.

You Will Need:

  • An old pair of tights, stockings or a muslin bag

  • Some porridge oats

  • Lavender and Chamomile essential oil (don’t add oils for tiny babies)

To Make:

  • Cut a length of stocking about 15cm long.

  • Tie a knot in one end.

  • Pour 1 cup of oats in.

  • Add a few drops of essential oil if using.

  • Tie a knot in other end.

  • Use in a bath of plain water.

  • Dispose of after 3 days. (For adults, make new each time for babies.)
