The Ultimate Detox Bath!
The first thing you need to know though, is that you should allow at least 45 minutes to yourself for this, because the first half of the time is to detox and the second half is to soak-in. The longer, the better.
You can make your own mixture with other ingredients, but the basic ingredients are as follows:
- 2 cups of Epsom salt (and add in another cup for every 50 pounds you are over 100 pounds)
- 2 cups of baking soda
- 1/3 cup of ground ginger
- Your choice of mint, herbs, or essential oils
Add all of those things (or your favorite optional ingredients) into a hot bath as it is running, and swish it around until it is as dissolved as possible. Jump in and enjoy. Be warned though...you WILL sweat, and quickly. The more ginger you use, the more you will sweat, and you can expect some pink skin within just a few minutes. Soak for at least 45 minutes, hop out and into a fluffy towel, and then spend the next fifteen minutes trying to remember your first name.
