- Detoxifying Bath Salts
Feeling sluggish? Having aches and pains, digestive issues or skin problems? It might be time for a detox! Detoxification is about cleansing, resting and nourishing the body from the inside out. By eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health. The liver is the body's central cleansing unit. When the blood in the liver is high in toxins, the side effects mentioned above can become prevalent. The body can also eliminate toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, and skin.
A warm bath in a detoxifying blend of essential oils can help the body stimulate the liver to drive toxins out and improve circulation of the blood. This amazing recipe was submitted by Vida from the Escents Coquitlam team! Try blending this at home or come into any Escents Retail Location to make it at the Escents Blending Bar if you don't have all the ingredients at home.
2 cups Baking Soda
1 cup Epsom Bath Salt
Grapefruit Essential oil
If you want more fragrance you can pick any of your favorite essential oils to add to this bath. (In my case I use Escents Tahitian Vanilla Bath Melts for extra moisture and aroma). Just add a cup of Epsom salt and two cups of baking soda into your bath. Salt and baking soda are composed of minerals that can aid in the body's detoxification process. In fact, it can make the water feel silky, thus leaving your skin velvet smooth. Add Grapefruit to fight cellulite and to rejuvenate your skin. You will see the color in the water change in no time… Bye Bye toxins!
Note: After mixing these ingredients well, you can store them in a glass jar with a screw-on lid. You only need about ¼ cup of the mix per bath so this recipe makes enough for about 16 uses.
