Detox Bath

5 Comments

For making your own detox bath:

  • 1 cup sea salt (salts have different mineral properties based off of where they come from, for an all around benefit of the salts, you can combine several different types to make up your cup)
  • 1 cup epsom salt
  • 2 cups baking soda (aluminum free)
  • 2 tsp glycerin (completely optional, feel free to leave out)
  • several drops of your favorite essential oil.  (Ravensara and Verbena have detoxing qualities. I used 5-6 drops Ravensara, 15-20 drops Lemon and 15-25 drops Lavender)

Stir well and store in a well sealed glass jar.  Don’t forget to label it!  When ready to use your detox mixture, add 1 cup apple cider vinegar and 1/4 cup of your detox mix to comfortably warm water.  Not too hot because it may dry out your skin and make you feel tired. Until you are used to the detoxing effects, I recommend only soaking 10 minutes the first time.  Although you can use this as often as you like, I would recommend starting at no more than 2/week for the first few weeks.
