This past weekend was a pretty crappy one for me. I have been fitting a chest cold and lost my voice. A friend of mine convinced me to try a detox bath. So I got the ingredients and gave it a try.
The Detox Bath
1 cup Epsom Salt
1 cup aluminum-free Baking Soda
Run your bath water as hot as you like. Pour the salt and
soda into the tub and swish to dissolve. Soak for 20-40 minutes. After at
least 20 minutes, rinse and towel off. Drink a full glass of water when
your finished. Repeat weekly.
I only lasted about 10 minutes in the tub. I was inpatient and got out and took a nap. I also added a cup of vinegar to the tub. The warm water did feel good and I felt clean afterward. I was told you are suppose to be exhausted afterwards which I was not, but I did take a nap. I am going to try it again when I am not sick and I can soak for a long time. You can also try this recipe below and make it in bulk.
2 C epsom salt
2 C sea salt
2 C aluminum free baking soda
5 TB ground ginger
1 C vinegar
Combine all dry ingredients, store in a closed container. During bath
time, add 1 cup of dry ingredients mix and 1 cup vinegar to hot running
water. Soak 20-40 minutes.
Epsom Salt draws out toxins from your body while relieving aches and pains.
Sea Salt soothes and heals blemishes and open wounds.
Baking Soda balances and over acidic system, leaving you refreshed, energized while softening the skin.
Ground Ginger increases circulations, aiding in the eliminations of toxins.
Vinegar soothes and soften dry, itchy skin while balancing the bodies and neutralizing the bodies pH.
I guess I will let you in on the good news. There is a children's consignment store near my job that also sells homemade items. I took some items over and the owner is interested and is going to start selling my products. I AM SO EXCITED! I am currently working on earrings and felt bobby pin bows for little girls.
