Detox Baths: Why You Should Try One!

What is a 'detox bath'?

Detox baths are a great way to soothe aching muscles, relax your busy brain, and can even help alleviate cold symptoms. They involve a bit more than just adding your favorite bubble bath or bath bomb, but they are totally worth the effort! The bonus? You might just have all of the ingredients you need right at home!

So fill up your tub with comfortably warm/hot water and get going! Here are a few of our favorites.

Detox Bath Recipes!

Got sore muscles? Try The Green Tea Detox Bath:

My absolute favorite recipe for a super relaxing and soothing detox bath? The green tea detox bath. After a busy week, with an even busier weekend where I tested my athleticism by creating my own ‘marathon’ of games playing ice hockey, my body was ACHING for some sweet relief. I made sure to hydrate and eat well the night before this bath.

(Please note: I recommend on soaking after intense exercise/activities the next day because you might get a bit dizzy and lightheaded, due to unknowingly being dehydrated.)

 

The Recipe:

  • 5-10 green tea bags
  • 1-2 cups of Epsom salt
  • 1-2 cups of baking soda

Optional: Add some of your favorite bubble bath or essential oil for the ultimate in relaxation.

 

Feeling under the weather? Try the Ginger Detox Bath:

This detox bath will get you sweating out your cold in no time! Just take note: Sweating essentially dehydrates you, so be sure to hydrate REALLY well after this bath and be careful getting up and out of the bath because you might feel lightheaded if you get overheated. Please exercise caution!

 

The Recipe:

  • 1-2 cups of Epsom salt
  • 1-2 cups of baking Soda
  • ⅓ cup of ground ginger

 

 

Stressed to the gills? Try the Lavender Detox Bath:

Lavender essential oil has proven time and again, a wonderful aid to help reduce stress. It’s no wonder that it would be incredibly beneficial in a relaxing detox bath to reduce stress levels and get you back on the path for a clear mind.

 

The Recipe:


Remember to really benefit from these soaks, it is suggested to hydrate really well by drinking plenty of water.
