Epsom salt baths are a great way to get rid of those harmful, unnatural substances, you don’t want in your system.
Imagine you’re at a party with lots of people — both those who were invited and those who weren’t. When the party’s over, usually at least some of those uninvited partygoers are still sticking around. It’s late, and you’re trying to figure out how to politely send them on their way. Well, when you take an Epsom salt bath – those “uninvited” pollutants are told to leave your body. — Christina Pander
There are two key ingredients found in epsom salts;
Magnesium – A mineral which helps to keep your bodily functions running smoothly, including some of the pathways that lead toxic wastes right out of your beautiful body. This mineral also plays a critical role in improving muscle and nerve function, reducing inflammation, and improving blood flow and oxygenation through out the body.
Sulfate – These are necessary building blocks for healthy joints, skin and nervous system tissue; and the combination of these ingredients help to gently flush those pesky toxins.
There’s so many great benefits to this detoxifying bath. So grab a book, a big glass of water and get ready to enjoy yourself.
Lemon + Lavender Detox Bath
- 1 – 2 c. epsom salts
- 1/2 c. unpasteurized apple cider vinegar
- 5 – 10 drops Lavender essential oil
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
In the evening, ideally before bed, begin to prepare your bath;
- Mix epsom salts into a quart jar full of very hot water. Stir with a wooden or plastic spoon (not metal) and set aside.
- Draw a nice hot bath and pour in the lemon juice, apple cider vinegar & essential oil.
- Pour contents of quart jar into the tub and mix well with your hands.
- Schedule yourself at least 40 minutes for this bath: 20 minutes to remove stored toxins, and 20 minutes to absorb the minerals in the water. **You can also rub your skin gently towards your heart, to stimulate the lymphatic system and as a extra boost in eliminating toxins.
Note: Please avoid epsom baths if pregnant, or dehydrated. And please be extra cautious when getting out of the tub, as the detoxification effect of the bath may leave you feeling a little light headed. This is also why this bath is best taken before bed.
