Detox Bath

Updated: Oct 26, 2022

After a long day, you may find yourself dreaming of heading home to take a long warm bath to release stress and unwind. You imagine the dim room, candlelit, with soft music playing, or just some needed silence as the warm water washes over you removing your stress and discomforts. This choice for self-care sounds great, but how often do we take the time to make it happen? There are too many other tasks calling your name when you get home. Before you know it you crawl into bed. You never got that bath, and now it just seems like too much work.

With the cooler seasons ahead of us taking a bath seems even more appealing. I like getting rid of that chill that goes down to the bones on a cold winter day with a bath. There is nothing worse than being cold all day.


Warming our bones and our soul is a great reason to take a bath, but did you know that it is also really good for our physical health? By adding a few ingredients to the bath we can make it a detox bath that does wonders for our bodies.


A detox bath helps to remove the buildup of toxins in the body. Our bodies are subject to toxins in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the medications we take, and even the water we drink daily. The havoc these toxins can cause is different for each one of us, but we are all feeling its effect one way or another. It can be effecting our mood, digestion, liver function, weight, sleep, and/or focus.


These baths can help pull these toxins out of our system leaving our bodies feeling restored and rejuvenated. The best part is they are easy to do and cost-effective. We just have to make the time.


Start by drawing a bath once a week. You can do it up to 3 times a week. If you can make that happen you are a pro. If you just can't seem to make the bath happen, you can plug your tub while you shower and detox through your feet. Your feet do wonders for detoxing.


Here are some of my favorite detox bath ingredients. The first two ingredients are a must and anything else you can add is a bonus.


  • 1-3 cups Epsom Salt- a salt made of magnesium and sulfate. Both are critical nutrients for the human body. Have long been used to stimulate detoxification, reduce inflammation in sore muscles, lower blood pressure, promote healthy circulation, and help with relaxation and normalizing sleep patterns. (Start with 1C)


  • .25 – 1 Cup Bentonite Clay- is a naturally-forming clay that magnetically pulls toxins, heavy metals, and wastes from the body. Bentonite clay also lowers the body’s PH levels.


  • 1 cup Baking Soda- naturally alkalizing and beneficial for boosting liver function, supporting digestive issues, and combating a sore throat.


  • 1-2 cups of Apple cider vinegar – is excellent for inflammatory body ailments, like arthritis, for those dealing with candida issues and can help with body odor. It induces sweat, which aids your body’s detox process, so don’t be surprised if you continue sweating for a bit afterward.


  • 20 Drops of Essential Oils (I like Lavender)


  • 1-6T of Ginger-known as a “fever bath,” boosts detoxification and immunity by raising the body’s temperature and encouraging sweating.

*Avoid using premade bath salts that have added chemicals and fragrances.


Try to stay in for at least 20 minutes. When you are done rinse off with cool water to cleanse your skin and close your pores.


Now all you have to do is make the time and draw that bath.


So how was it?
