Benefits Of Detox Bath

Human bodies cannot absorb all the nutrients, so these turn into toxins after a while. Toxic buildups may cause headache, fatigue and chronic disease, so it is essential to detox your body regularly. Detox bath is a way to help cleanse the body, relax the mind, and provide extra support to various systems of the body.

The benefits of a detox bath vary by the type of bath it is. Some are geared towards drawing out toxic heavy metals. Others are designed to get you to sweat excessively so that you can get other toxins out of your body. Some people use aromatherapy to help relax the mind and detox you by helping to release toxic thought patterns. You simply feel better after taking a detox bath, and the added ingredients make it more effective than simply taking a regular bath.

 Here are some health benefits of taking detox bath:
  • Soothe Arthritis Pain
  • Flushes toxins
  • Help prevent headache
  • Relieve Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Reduce Stress
  • Sleep Better
  • Help Control Diabetes
  • Lose Weight and Reduce Cellulite
  • Detoxification

Here what you need to draw a detox bath:
  • A handful of Epsom salt
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 8-10 drops essential oil
Types of essential oils you should be using for detox bath:
  • Lavender – Calming and relaxing effect
  • Grapefruit – Uplifting
  • Peppermint – Relieves fatigue

DIY detox bath:
  1. Add all the ingredients to your hot bath.
  2. Relax for 15-20 minutes. Let your body sweat, detox and absorb the ingredients.

The beauty of a detox bath is that you can take it whenever you want and whenever you feel like you need one. Functional medicine expert, Dr. Mark Hyman encourages a 20 minute detox bath daily, right before bed.
