There is something so soothing about a relaxing warm bath after a long day.
For years I was one who would take a bubble bath with a bubble bath product from a well known chain store that is famous for after holiday sales. I would stock up on yummy scented bath products thinking I was doing something good and relaxing for my body. Little did I know that the products I was soaking in was loaded with chemicals that are harmful for our skin. 😦
Thankfully, I was able to crawl out of my bubble bliss and learn about the health benefits of taking a detox bath. Due to our environment, our bodies are not getting the proper amount of magnesium that we need. Our bodies NEED magnesium to survive, yet our soil is being depleted and the typical American diet severely lacks the amount we need. I have been doing detox baths for about 3 years now and I am SO GLAD I started doing them. A little over a year ago I started using Young Living Essential Oils and I started adding them to my detox baths. I try to take a detox bath at least once a week, if not more. There are some weeks that I do not get to take one and I really miss it. I use lavender essential oil most of the time, however, I change it up depending on my mood. If I really want to relax and I am going right to bed after a detox bath, I do a combo of Lavender and Peace & Calming essential oils.
Amazing Detox Bath Recipe
2 Cups of Epsom Salt
1/2 Cup of Baking Soda
10 Drops of Essential Oil
( I only use Therapeutic Grade Young Living Essential Oils)
1 Bathtub of Hot Water ( Not too hot, but not warm)
20 to 30 Minutes of Soaking Time
I like combine the epsom salts, baking soda, and essential oil together before adding to the water in the tub. By adding the essential oils to the epsom salts and baking soda, the oil absorbs into the salt mixture and does not float on the top of the water. As we all know oil and water do not mix, therefore, adding essential oils to the bath water will not be as beneficial as it could be. Once the tub is at your desired soaking level, sit down in and relax for 20 to 30 minutes. After you are finished soaking, drain the tub while sitting in the tub, allowing your body time to rest before getting out of the tub. If you are pressed for time or you do not have a bath tub, you can still enjoy the benefits of a detox bath by doing a foot bath and reducing the amount of products.

The above recipes make a great gift for friends and family.
I like to make up a few jars during the holidays and have them for just in case gifts.
You never know when an unexpected guest will stop by during the holidays and bring a gift. 😉
