You can grind up old fashioned oats in a food processor or coffee grinder to get a fine powder. But, used too often, this might eventually clog your drain. (In my experience, an occasional oatmeal bath has been fine.)
If you’re worried about clogs, make a sachet with whole oats instead. Cut one leg of a clean pair of old pantyhose at the calf. Fill the sachet with whole oats and tie it closed. Drop the sachet into warm bath water and squeeze to release the milky oat liquid.
