One of my favorite baths to take is a detox bath, so I wanted to share with you my favorite detox bath recipe. A detox bath may help the body to flush out toxins, and it great to take when you feel like you are coming down with something.
You can save a lot of money making this yourself and it is super easy!
For this recipe you will need baking soda, epsom salt, and essential oils.
The baking soda helps neutralize the chemicals in your bath water (if it is not filtered). It also helps increase the absorption of minerals. *If you use filtered water you can skip this part*
The epsom salt helps draw toxins out of your body.
The benefits of lavender essential oil (I use Young Living brand): Relieves anxiety and stress, good for aches and pains, helps with a nervous stomach, and many more!
Lavender detox bath recipe:
- 1 cup Epsom Salt
- 1 cup Baking Soda
- 10 drops of Lavender Essential oils
- Pour contents into hot bath water and soak for 20 minutes. Try to cover your entire body up to your neck.
- Once you get out of bath, avoid eating anything for 20 minutes and drink plenty of cold water.
