Measure and pour the oatmeal into the food processor. Process the oatmeal until it looks like flour.
Boil 2 cups of water on the stove top or in the microwave until it’s bubbling hard.
Measure and pour 2 tablespoons of oatmeal powder and 2 tablespoons of the dried herbs of your choice into the bowl. Stir the dry ingredients a little to mix them up.
Pour the 2 cups of boiling water over the oatmeal and herbs in the bowl. Give the goodness a little stir and then leave it alone for about 20 minutes. While you kick back with a magazine, the oatmeal and herbs will infuse into the water.
Strain out the herbs and oatmeal from the water after letting it sit. You should have about 1 1/2 cups of water after infusing the oats and herbs. The water you get will have all the goodness from the oatmeal and herbs in it -- perfect for using in a homemade lotion recipe. Use the infused water in any recipe.
