After a long day there is nothing like a nice soak in the tub. I take detox baths which are very beneficial for your health. You soak in Epsom salt which is Magnesium Sulfate. It is absorbed through the skin and it aids in detoxification, supports healthy nerve function and strong muscles. I was able to enjoy one today and will start doing them regularly again. They also make your skin feel great and you sleep like a baby.
They can be very strong and I have had reactions, so I suggest starting off with this very mild one and working your way up to stronger ones.
Here is what you need:
- 5 drops of lavender essential oil ( I use DoTerra brand which you can purchase here )
- 1 cup of epsom salts
Here is what you do:
- use warm water, not hot at first as it is amps up the effectiveness and it could be too much
- add epsom salt and lavender oil while the tub is filling up
- light a candle and enjoy
At first it is advised to only soak for 20 mins
