Bonnie Tawes from Chicago's Lurie Garden showed ABC7 how to whip up some soothing antidotes to the harsh weather.Materials:

Small drawstring muslin bags or 4 inch squares of muslin or cheesecloth tied off with a string or ribbon

2 tablespoons oats
2 Tablespoons dried Peppermint herb
1 Tablespoon dried Hyssop herb (optional)
1 Tablespoon castile soap, grated

Place ingredients in a cloth bag with a drawstring or onto a 4-inch square of cheesecloth or muslin. Tie up bag so the ingredients won't fall out.

These bags can be used 8-10 times in the shower or bath instead of soap.
