Oatmeal baths have been recommended for years to people with sensitive skin. Oatmeal is known to be beneficial in relieving dry skin and other minor skin irritations. The use of oats for the skin dates all the way back to the ancient Egyptians. As early as 2000 BC the ancient Egyptians were using oats in their bath to relieve skin ailments.
To the ancient Egyptians, honey also was a precious commodity. In fact, it was so valued that the ancient Egyptians and Romans used it as a method of payment instead of gold! The Ebers’ papyrus is the oldest preserved medical document, dating back to 1552 BC that promotes the healing properties of honey. Almost all Egyptian medicines contained honey, milk and wine. Honey was used internally and externally for an antiseptic and antifungal remedy. The Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus is one of the oldest known medical papyrus which illustrates the surgical and wound healing methods of the “father of medicine,” Imhotep. This papyrus further detailed how valuable honey was to doctors in ancient Egypt. Today, raw honey is still revered for it’s many uses and beneficial properties.
