by Holistic_Health

Here is a great detox bath recipe that will help you feel good and relieve your body of stress.

If you're like me, you spend a lot of time on the computer and sitting at a desk. Your diet probably isn't first rate either. And if you're like me, when you do finally get up to move around, your body hurts because it's stiff. That's why I'm sharing this detox bath recipe. It will help loosen up muscles and joints while you're relaxing in the tub!

Detox Bath Recipe

Epsom Salts

Epsom salts are a great way to detox. They are rich in magnesium sulfate, which is known to be absorbed through the skin and help with detoxing and relaxation. Magnesium sulfate can also help with muscle pain and soreness, as well as being good for your skin.

If you're having trouble sleeping, Epsom salts might just be the solution! It's no secret that magnesium deficiency can cause insomnia, but this mineral is also known to help people relax before bedtime too!

Baking Soda Detox Bath Recipe

Baking soda is a common ingredient in many homemade recipes. It can be used to help detoxify the body and reduce inflammation, which is why it's frequently used in detox bath recipes, as well as toothpaste or mouthwash.

Baking soda makes a great scrub because of its abrasive texture; all you need to do to make one is mix equal parts baking soda and water until you get the consistency of damp sand. Mixing it with water creates a paste that you can use on your face and body to exfoliate dead skin cells—and if you add some essential oils, it will smell amazing!

Also, baking soda is a mild alkali that can be used to gently exfoliate your skin. It’s also a great natural alternative to toothpaste and mouthwash, as it helps remove plaque without drying out your mouth.

Detox With Essential Oils

To kick it up a notch, you can also add a few drops of essential oil to your detox bath. Essential oils are concentrated aromatic compounds extracted from plants. They have a variety of uses and health benefits, and they can be used as natural remedies for many ailments—from anxiety to headaches.

Essential oils are used in aromatherapy--the holistic practice that involves using volatile organic matter (VOM) such as essential oils to improve mental or physical well-being. This practice dates back thousands of years; ancient civilizations used incense sticks filled with VOMs like frankincense and myrrh to create scents that would relax their minds.It's still used today—you may have experienced firsthand how pleasant it feels when you inhale incense or diffuser oils.

There are many recipes for detox baths using essential oils. This is one recipe that you can try at home.

I think I'd go with the apple cider. I've had good luck using that in the past.

@WriterArtist Yes, I agree. They all work very well for relaxation.

@DerdriuMarriner I don't think milk is a detox but it makes for a relaxing bath -

Good ideas for detox bath. The options are affordable an easily available. I have tried 2 or 3 drops of essential oils in my bath and found them very relaxing. The bath salts are great for tired muscles. In addition, warm water relieves pain and eases sprains

The baking soda and the essential oils detox bath recipes especially interest me. One reason is that I already know the efficacy of apple cider vinegar.

An acquaintance mentioned that apple cider vinegar is a nice wash for all grape colors. So I tediously peel me each grape from their stems and place them in their apple cider vinegar wash. The faint, lingering, slight taste of apple cider vinegar remains when I take them alone or in salad.

I remember reading that Diane de Poitiers bathed in milk, which she then distributed to the hungry, thirsty poor in 16th-century France.

So, in a reverse application, I sometimes use the apple cider vinegar as a grape rinse and then in my bath ;-D -- for relaxation and a slight apple cider vinegar-grape scent -- not the reverse ;-{.

Would you happen to have come across milk as a relaxing detox or as a soap-like cleanser? It wouldn't be something that I plan to try -- I'm happy with your apple cider vinegar, baking soda and essential oils recipes.
