Having a warm bath is one of my favourite things to do before bed. It makes me feel so calm and relaxed and is a great time for a little pampering and 'me time'.
Detox baths help to make you feel relaxed, assist with removing toxins from your body as well as leave your skin feeling soft and firm. Here are some of my favourite natural detox recipes to assist with improving your health whilst you relax and enjoy your bath!
Clay Detox Recipe
1/2 cup Bentonite Clay
1/2 cup Epsom Salts
Mix the clay with a small amount of water to make a paste. Rub the clay all over your body and leave to dry for a couple of minutes before sitting in the bath. This will give the best effect of the clay as it is directly in contact with your skin and assists with drawing out toxins.
Pour the epsom salts into your bath and then get in with your clay body mask on. Relax for around 15-20 minutes and let the natural salts and clay powder do their magic.
Salt Detox Bath
1/2 cup Epsom Salts
1/4 cup Himalayan Salt
1/4 Baking Soda
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
Fill the bath with warm/hot water and add the apple cider vinegar. Then, dissolve the Himalayan and Epsom salts and the baking soda in hot water. Pour the salts into the bath. Next, get in the bath and relax! Soak for up to 30 minutes. This detox bath is excellent at boosting your magnesium levels, removing toxins and detoxing your body.
Green Tea Bath
8-10 bags organic Green Tea
Start to run your warm/hot bath. Add in 8 green tea bags (minimum) once the water is halfway full. Add the other 2 bags if you desire. Let the bags soak in the bath for around 15 minutes when you notice the bath change colour. Remove the teabags and then get in the bath. Soak for around 20 minutes and let the antioxidants and minerals from the green tea soak into your skin ; your body's largest organ!
Ginger Sauna Bath
2 tablespoons Organic Ginger Powder
Fill your bath with warm/hot water. Once your bath tub is full, pour in your ginger powder and mix into your bath water. Get in your bath and relax for 15/20 minutes. This bath will heat your body up and enable you to sweat. This bath is excellent at reducing flu symptoms and releasing toxins from your body. This bath improves immunity and is a great detoxifying bath!
