Dealing with all of the environmental toxins today, can take a toll on the body. A simple way to help combat these toxins is to take a detoxification bath. In spas today, the use of water therapy is very popular.
Bathing in waters containing various healing ingredients can help to release toxins, promote energy, circulation and well being. Soaking in hot water can assist in pulling harmful toxins from your skin. Detox baths can also help ease sore muscles. This ancient remedy assists your body in eliminating toxins as well as absorbing helpful minerals and nutrients.
This bath can be done in your very own bathtub and does not require special equipment. Hot water helps draw toxins out of the body to the skin’s surface. When the water cools, it pulls toxins from the skin. The ocean, mineral, hot springs and herbal baths have been used for centuries world wide, for their therapeutic effects.
This is the simple recipe that I regularly use to help combat toxins and detoxify my body:
- 1 cup Epsom salts
- 1/2 cup Baking Soda
- About 1/2 cup Powdered Ginger
Pour Epsom salt or Baking Soda, and ginger into a warm bath and soak for 15 to 20 minutes. After soaking, scrub the skin gently with a natural fiber like a cotton washcloth or a loofah sponge for 5 minutes. Do not remain in the tub for more than 30 minutes. Note the “murky” appearance of the water, this is due to the toxins released in your bath water.
Wrap yourself in a large towel or bathrobe and then cover up with a warm blanket. You will sweat for about an hour. The next morning you will feel fantastic!
You can take a detoxification bath often, or at least once a month. In addition to detoxifying the body, this bath is also helps relieve pain.
