A bath can be a sanctuary where we can relax and find solace. Here at a Natural Shift, we are firm believers in detox baths. This post gives all of our tricks and tips on how to make the most of your bath time.
First, fill the tub with warm water- enough to make you sweat
Add about 1 cup of epsom salt – great way to get some magnesium that most all of us are deficient in
1/2 a cup of baking soda – helps the epsom salt stay dispersed in the water and get absorbed.
1/4 cup Hydrogen peroxide – Aids in detoxification as well, plus it’s aseptic so it helps with infection.
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar – lots of benefits for your body, aids in opening up your liver detox pathways
Add 5 drops of either zendocrine essential oil blend or Juniper berry oil. Others we love are lavender, whisper, serenity and marjoram.
The perks of taking detox baths include aiding in detoxification of the different harmful chemicals we pick up through the day whether that be through food, lotions, or our environment. Dry brushing before getting into the bath will help with the detox process.
