Our bodies are champs at detoxifying naturally. However, with the amount of pollutants and chemicals floating around these days, it can be really beneficial to give your body a little help from time to time.

Detox baths have been around for centuries and are used all of the time for eliminating toxins, helping the body absorb minerals and nutrients, curing skin problems and easing sore muscles.

They are easy to prepare and most of the ingredients can be found in your local grocery stores.

You will need: Epsom salt (2 cups), baking soda (1/2 cup), lavendar essential oil (10 drops),  skin brush and of course bathtub filled with hot water.

Make sure you are well hydrated before and during your detox bath because minerals in the bath will pull toxins out from your skin – and that can be very dehydrating.

Before starting your bath, it’s always a good idea to dry brush your skin, which will help shed dead layers of skin off, speed up your lymphatic system and smooth your skin.

A relaxing atmosphere can’t hurt, so get your fav relaxing playlist ready.

And then the best part! Soak, relax, breathe, calm your mind, and let your body take over from there.

Sound good to you!?
