*Detoxing bath recipe*
Sweating is one of nature's ways of detoxify your body. The hot bath releases toxins out of your body onto your skin’s surface and, while the water cools, releases even more.
Detox Bath Recipe:
1/3 cup Epsom salts
1/3 cup sea salt
1/3 cup baking soda
2 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 cup apple cider vinegar
Essential oils, if desired
Draw a bath with water as hot as you can stand it. As the water is filling the tub, add the dry ingredients and vinegar. Your water may change colors a bit due the ginger and vinegar.
Soak in the bath for 30 minutes. I bring a magazine with me. After soaking gently rub your skin toward your heart) to clear out toxins.
Epsom salts makes you sweat, reduce inflammation, and relieve muscle aches.
Sea salt helps to remove out toxins and heal skin.
Baking soda is alkaline and helps balance an overly acidic system and softens water and skin.
Apple cider vinegar helps restore the acid-alkaline balance in your body and softens skin.
