DETOX BATH BENEFITS

A detoxifying soak in the tub for 20 minutes a few nights/week before bedtime can change your life, we promise. Not only will specific bath-time recipes help your body sweat out nasty toxins you have accumulated throughout the day, but it will also prep you for a good night’s sleep, calm you, + provides a fantastic time to connect with your mind via meditation after a long day.

How does it do that? You will SWEAT-IT-OUT. Being able to remove metabolic waste that can turn into and/or create chronic disease is a MUST when it comes to our health!

Detox Bath General Rules + Regulations: 

  • Soak for a minimum of 20 minutes, but do not stay in fo longer than 40 (too much of a good thing, you know what I mean…)
  • Don’t be surprised if you feel light-headed or flushed when you are getting out of the tub, so take it slow and easy and always try this when someone else is home with you.
  • Do not eat immediately after your bath, but by all means, drink plenty of water to replenish what you just released.
  • Do not use any harsh, chemical-laden soaps while in the bath as your pores are open at this time and your skin may be more sensitive to them.

Ashley’s Favorite Detox Bath Recipe:

  • • Fill it with Warm/Hot water
  • • ¼ cup Himalayan Crystal salt
  • • 2 cups Epsom salt
  • • ½ cup Baking Soda
  • • 1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • • 10 drops essential oil of choice
  • • I love invigorating peppermint or calming lavender

Recommended frequency: 2-3 times per week minimum

 

As always, consult a doctor beforehand to ensure you do not have any limitations.
