Yes, we all know that there are many different (effective) ways to detox, but – one of the easiest and most relaxing is through a detox bath. And what’s the best part about it – well, they’re insanely easy to make at home. You’ll get all the benefits you’d find in a high-end spa bath at a fraction of the price and in the comfort of your own home.Using essential oils, which provide antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory benefits, along with common household items like baking soda, Epsom salts, and honey can help flush impurities from the body by allowing it to sweat out toxins.
How Detox Baths Work
Here’s what you need to know – the reason water as hot as can be tolerated is typically used is because this initially draws toxins to the surface of the skin. Then, as the water gradually cools down, the toxins are pulled into the water via the principle of osmosis – the weak energy from the cooling water draws from the strong energy from the body heated up initially by the very hot water. These are the most important reasons why you should have a homemade detox bath:
