The Detox Bath
If you’ve never experienced a detox bath, you have to and Epsom salts are an efficient and inexpensive way to do so. It’s very important to give your body a break from processing all of these toxins, the mineral water from the salt penetrates through the pores to hydrate, purify and relax the body.
What you’ll need:
- half a box (2 lb) of Epsom salts or more ..(totally up to you)
- a big scoop of coconut oil
- a few drops of essential oil (your choice)
What to do:
Fill your tub with warm water and add the oils and Epsom salt. Easy peasy. P.S. The more salt you add, the more detoxifying it will be, so you may want to start small and work your way up.
You could also try Rosewater and coconut milk for a more soothing bath
