If you've had the long week that I have had then you would appreciate a quiet bath! There are so many different mixtures for baths out there, but today I just want to detox. I want to start being healthier, so detoxing through a bath would be the perfect start.
Toxins are excreted through sweating (duh) but soaking in water full of minerals is the cherry on top. You will feel awakened and refreshed afterwards! Enjoy.
Here's what you will need:
-At least 40 mins. of private time (20 mins. to detox, 20 mins. to absorb the minerals in the water)
-2 cups Epsom Salt (flushes toxins and replenishes your body's magnesium levels)
-At least 1-2 cups Baking Soda (this cleanses and leaves skin silky soft)
-1 Tablespoon Ground Ginger (Ginger raises body temp. to help sweat out toxins)
-Fresh herbs or aromatherapy oil for relaxation (Lavender flowers or Chamomile, Tea Tree Oil or Ylang Ylang)
Fill your tub with comfortably hot water. Add all the ingredients and swish them around, then soak! The longer the better but shoot for at least 20 mins. After the bath, slowly step out, you'll be a little weak. Don't forget to drink plenty of water to continue detoxing!! (If you don't, you might feel a little sick after) Use a loofa to rub skin after the bath. Use long strokes aiming upward towards your heart.
Drink water before, during and after the bath. Don't eat or drink right before or after you soak. Wrap your towel around you immediately to continue the detox. Take it easy the rest of the day!
