DIY MOISTURIZING DETOX BATH SOAK WITH ROSEMARY AND CHAMOMILE

WHAT IS A DETOX BATH?

Detox baths are a natural body care practice based on the idea that toxins can be drawn out of the skin (our largest organ) by soaking in a hot bath that contains purifying substances. Common additives to detox baths include clay,  mineral salts, Epsom salts, baking soda, essentials oils, and herbs. My favorites are Epsom salts, baking soda, and essential oils.

EXPERT ADVICE FOR DETOX BATHS

Detoxification baths are recommended during detox diets by many medical experts.

Dr. Mark Hyman recommends a nightly detox bath when giving up refined sugar in his book The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet .

He suggests a nightly detox bath that uses hot water, Epsom salts, baking soda and lavender essential oil. He recommends soaking in the bath for 20 -30 minutes a night to aid in sleep and help relieve stress when you are dieting. Dr. Hyman believes this detox bath process can aid in weight loss and the reduction of sugar cravings.

DETOX BATH SALTS INGREDIENTS

This detox bath recipe uses four simple ingredients that promoted stress release, aid in sleeps, and can assist with weight loss. You may already have many of them in your home.

  • Magnesium Sulfate:  Popularly known as Epsom Salt.  Soaking in Epsom salts is an excellent way to transdermally absorb magnesium which is used for treating anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, leg cramps, migraine headaches, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), restless leg syndrome, skin infections and more.

  • Sodium Bicarbonate:  Popularly known as Baking Soda. Sodium bicarbonate makes bath water alkaline which can assist with detoxification and the absorption of the other detoxifying ingredients. Baking soda also soothes irritated skin, relieves pain or itching, and leaves the skin feeling silky.
  • Rosemary Leaves and Essential Oils:  Rosemary is a fragrant evergreen plant that is commonly used in aromatherapy to stimulate blood circulation, relieve headaches and muscle aches,  reduce stress, and boost the immune system. It is also used topically to treat skin conditions such as eczema and in bath therapy.
  • Chamomile Flowers: Many people know chamomile tea as a relaxing drink.  It is also a calming,  soothing herb with anti-inflammatory properties. Chamomile is used for soothing skin ailments including eczema and hemorrhoids. It also has anxiety reducing qualities and is used to treat sleep disorders.

DETOX BATH SOAK RECIPE

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Epsom Salt (unscented)
  • 1/2 cup Baking Soda
  • 10 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
  • 2 tea bags Chamomile Tea (100% chamomile)
  • 1/4 cup Dried Rosemary (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix rosemary essential oil into the Epsom salts.
  2. Crush rosemary into fine pieces and pour into Epsom salts with the contents of the chamomile tea bags.
  3. Stir all ingredients together.
  4. Store in an airtight container. (You may make several batches at once.)

HOW TO TAKE A DETOX BATH WITH BATH SALTS

Take a Rosemary Chamomile Detox Bath at night just before going to bed. A nighttime bath ritual is a great way to relax, reduce stress, and avoid late night food cravings.

To prepare a bath: Fill the tub with hot water.  Add 2.5 cups of Rosemary Chamomile Detox Bath salts then soak for 20-30 minutes. Add music, candles, a good book or an interesting podcast to make bath time more enjoyable. Make sure to have a cold glass of drinking water within reach to re-hydrate during the bath.

DETOX BATH WARNINGS

If you have any medical conditions or take prescription medicines you should consult with your doctor before taking a detox bath or using magnesium. Hot bath water can cause dehydration and dizziness. You should drink lots of water while taking a detox bath and never take a detox bath when using drugs or alcohol.
