Sometimes our bodies get tired; our minds get tired, too. I have stumbled upon a great way to reboot and feel great.
The Detox Bath:
-Four cups epsom salt
-A bottle of hydrogen peroxide
-1/2 cup of baking soda
-A few drops of essential oil (optional)
Make sure water is nice and warm, not hot. Light a candle, relax, and you’re good to go!
I do this about once a week, allowing myself to soak for 30-45 minutes and holy schnikes, I definitely feel amazing after. I’m not well-versed in the science behind detox bathing, but what I do know is epsom salt is excellent for sore, tired muscles. Hydrogen peroxide — as we all know — works great for a number of things (mouth sores, cuts, sore throat, skin blemishes, etc). Baking soda kills fungi and mold and can be used for medicinal purposes as well.
The essential oils I use are below:
Any brand of essential oil works great in my opinion, as long as it’s 100% natural. Peppermint feels refreshing on the skin and smells nice, too. You can find essential oils on Amazon for a fair price. No sense in buying them from a “distributor.”
I will probably never waste another dime on an expensive Lush bath bomb again. Bath bombs are fun, but what are we really paying for?
If you try this, please let me know how it made you feel in the comments section.
Until then, keep being you.
