There are many ways to distress you in today’s time. It could be through retail therapy but let us be honest with this one; you might have buyer’s remorse after enjoying your high with dopamine. There is exercise, this benefits your body but too much exercise can lead to bruised muscles and if you stop you might have a few health problems. Others resort to reading, this one can strain your eyes but on the upside you will gain knowledge. Some people distress themselves with trying to find a new hobby which is good but it can be also very expensive and you might feel a little burned out afterwards. These are few ways to distress you but there is one way that anybody can do to help their body detox, whether it is from stress or from body pain this method helps; it is called detox bathing. Many cosmetics stores have formulated their own detox bath bombs but sometimes they are a little bit on the pricey side or they might have a bad side effect that they sometimes leave it out of the packaging. To be safe and practical, you can make your own detox bath with a few recipes in this blog post. No need to worry, the said ingredients can be found in your own home, and if not, you can easily buy them in your local grocery. Here are a few detox bath recipes you should try in the comfort of your own home:
Clay Detox Bath: ½ cup of bentonite clay, ½ cup of Epsom salt, a few drops essential oil you desire to put in your bath.
Instructions: Dissolve the Epsom salts in a warm/hot bath and add essential oils if desired. For the clay there are two options:
Vigorously mix the clay in to a small amount of water until the clumps are mostly dissolved. Do not use metal for this! Mix with a plastic spoon in a glass jar. Add the clay mix to the bath and soak for at least 20 minutes.
Mix that clay with a small amount of water to make a paste. Stand in the tub full of water and rub the clay mix all over your body to create a skin mask and let dry for 5 minutes before sitting down. This provides direct contact with the skin and effectively pulls toxins from the skin. Soak in bath at least 20 minutes or as long as desired. While soaking, use a wash cloth to scrub any remaining clay off the skin.
This bath is great for removing a lot of toxins as the clay binds to heavy metals and the Epsom salts help pull a variety of toxins from the body while replenishing magnesium levels.
Boosting Immune System Detox Bath: ingredients are 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide, and 1 tablespoon of dried ginger.
Instructions: Fill the tub with warm/hot water and add the hydrogen peroxide and dried ginger. Soak in tub for 30 minutes or as long as desired.
This detox bath can help your nasal congestion and it also help your skin if you have irritations.
Mustard Bath Detox: ½ cup of Epsom salt, 1 cup of baking soda, 1 cup of powdered mustard, and a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
Instructions: Whisk salt, baking soda, mustard powder and essential oils (optional) in a large bowl. Add 1 cup of mustard mixture to a hot bath. Soak for 20 to 30 minutes.
Just like the other one, this helps with your nasal congestion and cleanses your body at the same time. Another tip is you can add cocoa and oats to help your skin be moisturized.
Vinegar Detox Bath: 1-2 cups of apple cider vinegar and a few drops of your favorite essential oils.
Instructions: Once or twice a week, fill a tub with warm to hot water and add 1-2 cups of apple cider vinegar. Soak for 20-30 minutes, using a washcloth to clean my face and making sure to get my hair wet as well.
Not everyone loves the smell of apple cider vinegar but it helps with skin irritation, it balances your body’s pH levels and deodorizes your body.These are easy to make detox bath and they are beneficial to your body. Just remember that before doing a detox bath, hydrate yourself and after a detox bath it is a must to rinse your whole body with cold shower.
