INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED?

HOW TO MAKE?
Lie your muslin or Supa wipe flat on a surface.
Place 2 to 3 cups of ground oatmeal in the centre.
Pull up the corners and tie a long piece of string around tightly to keep the oatmeal in place.
Leave enough string to be able to tie to your bath tap.
Tie onto and hang from the hot tap so the water flows through it.
Add a cup of Raw Unfiltered Organic Apple Cider Vinegar directly into the bath.
HOW TO USE?
Relax and soak it up for 10 to 15 minutes.
Do 2 to 3 times a week if your condition is severe.
As it gets better, only do it when you have flare-ups.
