Our bodies are subject to many harsh chemicals in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the body care products some of us lather on our skin. If the toxins remain in the body it is possible for our organs to become increasingly toxic leading to all kinds of possible illness. It is possible to recognize when your body might be needing to detox. If you are feeling sluggish, bloated, achy in the joints, having brain fog or just need to relax, a Detox Bath might be just what you need!
These are the ingredients I use in my Detox Bath
(I use about 1/4 cup of each one and add 20-40 drops of Lavender Essential Oil)
Magnesium Flakes ~ Adding Magnesium Flakes to your body, provides magnesium through the skin. Magnesium is necessary for heart function, bone density, muscle cramping, sound sleep, many metabolic reactions in the body, and much more. Many people are deficient in Magnesium and this is a great way to get Magnesium in the body and relax at the same time.
Bentonite Clay ~ Bentonite clays helps in the detoxification process stimulating the lymphatic system to deeply cleanse by pulling toxins out through the skin.
Baking Soda ~ Baking Soda helps to drain the lymphatic system of toxins. Baking Soda not only helps soothe skin rashes, it helps to restore the acid/alkaline balance in the body. Baking Soda has also been known to counter the effects of radiation.
Epsom Salts ~ Epsom Salts is used as a method for detoxification. The magnesium sulfate that is in the salts help to detoxify with medicinal and cleansing actions like if you were soaking in a sulfur hot spring. Epsom Salts helps relax muscles while pulling toxins out.
Essential Oils ~ You can use any of your favorite essential oils. I love to use Lavender Oil. If I don’t have oils I will break off a branch and some flowers and put it straight in the bath. Lavender is great for soothing the skin and helping with scrapes, cuts, bruises and skin irritations. It is also great for relaxing and unwinding after a long day right before bedtime.
* You can also add Apple Cider Vinegar as it balances the body back into an alkaline state. It soothes and softens the skin too. Himalayan Pink Salts helps rid the body of toxins as well as helps with skin problems, joint pains, insect bites, poison oak/ivy irritations and much more.
Relax and Detox while you take a quiet moment for yourself and your overall wellness.
