Detox Bath

Last week I was feeling weird. Nothing seemed to be going right, even though everything was fine (y'heard?) My body and mind weren't feeling up to par, so I decided to try having a detox bath to clear myself of some toxins. Was this bath fix mostly emotional? Probably. Did it work? Yeah.

Every time I need a detox bath, I don't want to sludge out to the store to buy necessary ingredients, so I usually end up mixing 12 recipes + weird things I have in my cupboard to make my own personal heaven (i.e. a locked bathroom door, a warm bath, and some quiet time).

Here's what the recipe usually looks like:

1 cup hydrogen peroxide
1 / 2 cup baking soda

Other ingredients I would include if I had them:

a few drops of essential oil (make sure it's skin friendly, not just aromatherapeutic)
1 / 4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup epsom salts (they are NOT the same as table salt...thanks Google haha)

9 easy steps to an awesome detox bath:

1. Lock yourself in the bathroom with all your ingredients.
2. Make the bath water as hot as you can + add ingredients.
3. Turn on some Kenny G and light some weird candles.
4. Turn off the Kenny G. He stresses me out.
5. Drink a glass of water before getting in the bath. Hydration.
6. Sit in the bath for 30 minutes, with as much of your body covered as possible.
7. Rinse in a lukewarm shower.
8. Get out slowly because you're gonna feel weirdsies.
9. Drink a ton of water and go to bed.

You might feel weird the night you take the bath, but you'll feel great the next day.

Do it! Detox baths are one of my favorite Pinterest finds. I've been doing them daily since I got sick. The benefits may be mostly psychosomatic, but I swear they're starting to work.
