Before we delve into the detox ideas…
Soaking in a bath would not be the same without something good to read. Click on the blue underlined words to find out more about healthy teas you can drink while immersing in healthy water, essential oils you might enjoy trying after the bath, apps to make your caregiving easier, or strategies for stress reduction.
Today is a good day to smile.
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.
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.
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.
