Detox Wellness Bath

In my ongoing quest for a life of wellness, I recently read about the soothing, healing benefits of taking a regular detox bath. You can take a detox bath with your whole body or just your feet. Either way, it's a win!

Some of the possible benefits can be found here:

Detox bath: Why and how

Pure Inside Out

Here's what you do...

1) Buy some Epsom salt. I got a GIANT amount at Costco because Costco is my favorite store and I fully intend to explore the many wonders of Epsom salt. You could also buy a normal size container at Target, Walmart or Hy-Vee.

2) Mix 2 cups of Epsom salt, 1 cup of baking soda, and a bathtub of warm water. Don't get it too hot. Mega hot water is not healthy for your bod-bod. It could cause you to pass out. Or, if you're like me (which you're probably not), really hot water will give you hives. So, bottom line: keep it warm. But not scalding.

3) Add 10 droplets each of all your favorite essential oils. I am amassing a large collection of essential oils. A few of my favorites include lavender, tea tree oil, lemon, and peppermint. If you are a local, the Co-op downtown sells a large selection of essential oils. An excellent online distributor is Plantlife.

4) Soak for 20 minutes in your bath delight.

5) I am not a medical professional. I am just a lady looking for some healing. So I would definitely recommend checking in with your doc if you have any concerns about warm baths or essential oils or Epsom salt. Be careful; safety first.
