New Recipe:

Before I get to our bath recipe, let me point you to a fabulous Gluten-Free Brownie recipe submitted to this blog.  After you click here, scroll to the comment at the bottom for the Black Bean Brownie recipe.  I cannot wait to try it.

Detox Bath:

Below you will find the ingredients and proportions for a detox bath.  It is supposed to remove toxins from your body while alkalizing your body.

  • 1 Box Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Epsom Salts
  • 10 Ginger Tablets (Check your local health food store for these.)

Combine all ingredients in warm water and soak for 20 minutes.  After you soak, be sure to rinse off.

How to alkalize drinking water:

Another tidbit that I learned from the bottom of the detox bath recipe is how to alkalize your drinking water.  Apparently, you can alkalize your own water rather than buying alkalized water.  You only need to boil your water for 10 minutes and then let it cool before drinking.

Additional bonus!

A foot detox was sent my way recently.  If you do not want to dirty your entire tub, or if you want to revive tired and aching feet, try this idea.

  • 1 Cup Epsom Salt
  • 1 Cup Sea Salt
  • 2 Cups Baking Soda

Mix all ingredients together and store in an air tight container.  When you are ready to detox, place 1/4 cup of the mixture in a pan of warm water. (You may also add an essential oil.)  Soak for 30 minutes.

  1. I’m looking forward to giving the detox bath a try!! Also may I add that another great detox bath is add 2cups of apple cider vinegar to bath soak for 30 minutes!! Thanks for all your help

    1. Such a fabulous tip! Cannot wait to try this detox bath! And, I just received Rebecca Collin’s newest book of devotions for caregivers. I will certainly enjoy reading that while I remove toxins. Thank you for this valuable advice!

  2. Hello. I’m very interested in doing the detox bath but think I may should wait till summer? I have very dry skin that is rough and even cracked in places so I’m trying to find a natural solution for moisturization. I’ve asked many nurses over the years for advice and they have all told me to lather my hands and feet in Vaseline and cover with socks overnight. It wasn’t effective for me and I’ve since then learned how bad doing that was for my body. Any advice? Oh and I also drink 6 glasses of water a day plus juice smoothies some days and occasional organic coffee. Thanks

    1. Have you tried goat’s milk soap? (Yes,I realize this sounds weird.). I just started using that soap and love how my legs do not stay dry all the time. It is sold at Publix.

  3. Would love to try this detox bath. It sounds very soothing. Will try it some day soon, I hope (when the dogs give me enough time – LOL)

    1. Thanks so much for the detox information. Love the one where you premix and us a little at a time for your feet, etc. Sometimes that is all I want, a little soaking, not a tube soaking! Thank you so much for all this great knowledge.
