Taking a relaxing epsom salt bath is the the best way to wind down after a busy day or week. But have you ever wondered if there is way to make your bath more beneficial? The answer is yes! There are several natural additions that can help your body detox and relax even further. Get ready to draw the best bath ever and feel more amazing than you ever have before!
Add Apple Cider Vinegar
It’s no surprise that adding apple cider vinegar to your epsom salt bath is beneficial for the body’s largest organ, the skin! Apple cider vinegar is exceptionally soothing, particularly if your skin is dry and itchy. It also as the amazing ability to help balance your body’s pH, leaving you feeling refreshed and full of energy. Aim to add about a cup or so for maximum benefits.
Add An Essential Oil or Two
If you’re looking for maximum relaxation, adding your favorite essential oil to your epsom salt bath mix will bring you all the relief you could ever ask for! I highly recommend using lavender, sandalwood, lemongrass, ylang ylang, or geranium. Essential oils have incredible mood lifting and detoxifying benefits, making bath time that much better. Add 5-10 drops to your epsom salt bath and enjoy!
Add Bentonite Clay
Adding bentonite clay is the best way to give your bath the most powerful detoxifying benefits. Dissolving clay in your epsom bath is ideal for when you are feeling run down and tired because it helps stimulate the lymphatic system and deeply cleanses the skin. By helping your body detox all the extra junk it doesn’t need, you’ll be left feeling lighter and ready to take on the next challenge that comes your way. Use about a half a cup of clay in your bath and let the detox begin!
By incorporating these few items into your epsom salt bath, you may find yourself craving a post-bath time slumber. No need to be worried, since detoxing naturally makes the body sleepy. Ideally, you can plan to have your tub cleanse right before bed so that you don’t have to worry about being too tired. Drinking lots of water after is important too, since the body is flushing out toxins and needs all the hydration it can get to support the detox. Happy bath time!
