A detox bath is a way of removing harmful toxins from the body. Toxins don’t just show up in the chemical form, but also in the form of stress, tension, and constantly being attached to our phones day and night (social media, email).
All of this can & will take a toll on our bodies. The skin is our largest organ so soaking in a warm bath is a great way to sweat, draw out toxins that have built up, and just relax.
A detox bath is a way to relax, recharge, and “detox” from all the things that may be pulling you in a million different directions these days.
First, you’ll need to make the bath salts. To do this, you’ll need a jar and 4 cups of Epsom salt or sea salt (or a combination of both Epsom salt and sea salt to equal 4 total cups), 1 Tablespoon of a nourishing carrier oil, and 5-20 drops of lavender and peppermint essential oil.
Pour your salt of choice into the storage jar. In a small bowl, combine the nourishing oil of choice and essential oil of choice (between 5-20 drops, depending on aroma desired). Pour the oil blend into the bath salts and carefully stir to blend everything together. Seal the jar and store away from direct sunlight.
To take a detox bath, fill a bathtub with very warm water. Of course, use common sense when it comes to the temperature of the water.
While the tub fills with water, add your bath salts. (The essential oils will begin to evaporate in the warm water when you do this, but I find they’re still worth adding to the bath salts.) I like to add around 2 cups per bath, but you can go as low as 1 cup. The bath salts should fully dissolve in the bath. You might need to use your hands to swish the salts around until fully dissolved.
Add the apple cider vinegar to the bath water.
I normally soak in the tub for about 20 minutes. You and I are different so please do what works best for you. The goal is to reach a state of relaxation. You stressing out about timing isn’t going to help you get in the mood so set the time aside for yourself to actually enjoy the bath.
While soaking, be sure to drink plenty of water (preferably room temperature water since you’re in a hot bath). You will sweat that is normal so use your best advice if you start to feel sick & get out. Some people may only need a five minute detox, our lifestyles are different therefore the time we need to soak will differ.
Why is it when people are struggling they have to find others to blame? That does not resolve anything it only creates a bigger problem than the one your dealing with. Saying sorry doesn’t mean it was your fault it just means you accept your responsibility in the matter. Many minor problems end up in war due to miscommunication. Everyone is different. Just because I cry when I’m emotional does not mean I am soft and if I didn’t cry it wouldn’t mean I’m hard. Just as we deal with emotions in a different manor struggling is the same.
Just because your not perfect at everything that does not give you the right to give up on your future self. Be confident, weigh out the consequences of your actions, always smile when you make eye contact, support your vision and straighten your path. If you can not help yourself then you should ask someone to help you. People are out in the world craving to help others succeed believe it or not, everybody isn’t all bad. Here’s the thing, a closed mouth won’t get fed and the same goes for your closed mouth. How will you ever get fed by being afraid to ask for help. Asking for help is a strength many do not process, it means you refuse to give up no matter what others think. Kids are constantly asking questions no matter how annoying we tell them they are being. I bet the smartest kids never stop asking questions…
Some people air all their business out on social media as if the people care. The platform is for entertainment purposes only. When people say “pray for me” I always wonder if an enemy saw the post and prayed in the opposite path of healing. Words have power which is why in my home we never use the word “hate.” My point is, not everybody is your friend, on your team, or rooting for your come up. Tough times and tough situations usually reveal these people. Some people come around for a good time and when your money is gone, so are they. Beware the world is full of leeches & family can be the worst ones.
