DETOX BATHS TO CLEANSE, RELAX, & REJUVENATE YOU

10 Detox Baths to Cleanse

1. Magnetic Clay Detox Bath– Here’s a special clay that is said to be magnetized so that it draws certain things from your body. The great part about these clays is that you can use them to treat certain conditions, like having excessive amounts of mercury in your body, or things like arsenic and aluminum. Each one is specially formulated to treat that specific material. They break down the sources of these contaminants to help you assess which ones you’re most at risk for. You can use them in succession so that you make sure you are free of these metals and then focus on maintaining that state.

2. Baking Soda Detox– Did you know that common baking soda, the kind you might keep in your fridge to absorb the odors, can also be used as a detoxing device? That’s right, just by adding this to a bath you are giving it properties it otherwise wouldn’t have. It’s been said that this bath can help you de-stress. It’s important to look at stress as a toxic condition and to look at ways of relaxing to detox the body. The scientific way of referring to baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, and it’s great for neutralizing the chlorine that’s been added to most city water sources. It’s hard to detox in a bath that is full of a toxic chemical, so it’s good that this makes it naturally cleaner.

3. Bentonite Clay Detox Bath– Bentonite clay is presented as a way of taking a heavy metal detox bath since it is said that it draws these metals out through its magnetism. Heavy metals can enter the body through any number of ways, and chances are if you haven’t cleansed your body of them yet, you have accumulated them over the years. The most common way is just by drinking water that hasn’t been properly filtered. Other ways are through dental work, eating foods that have been treated with certain chemicals, and much more. That’s why it’s important to do regular detox for these heavy metals.

4. Hydrogen Peroxide Bath

The last few months it seems everyone had been hit with the horrible late-winter cold from hell: wheezing cough, runny nose, and an aching body. Try this simple DIY detox bath, and so it effective:

1. Run a hot bath. It opens pores and prepares the body for cleansing.

2. Add three pints of hydrogen peroxide (3%). This oxygenates the body and helps purge toxins. It’s also antibacterial and antiviral.

3. Add two ounces of ground ginger, a natural anti-inflammatory that increases blood circulation and helps promote the elimination of toxins through sweat.

4. Soak for about 30 minutes.
5. Drink lots of water; You need to replenish what’s being pulled out of your system. Within 5 minutes of soaking in the tub, my body felt like it had turned into a faucet. Sweat started pouring down my face and out of every pore. Afterward, I drank two large glasses of water and crawled into bed. I slept like a baby that night, and to my surprise, woke up feeling more energetic and less achy than the day before. Miraculous! I only need that one soak to feel vastly better, repeating the bath for up to three days if symptoms persist.
