Sea Salt Bath

A salt bath is one of the most popular baths around. It’s mostly thought of to help people relax their body and aching muscles. But another bonus about doing a salt detox is that the salt helps to pull toxins out of the body, helps soften your skin and gives you more energy.

Ginger Bath

When you think of ginger, one thinks of drinking or eating it for it’s natural health benefits. Grated, fresh ginger (adding about a half cup to the bath, or about 2 Tbsp of powder form) in a warm bath, is said to help the body sweat, imitating the results of a steam or sauna. This increased sweating releases more toxins out of the body, which some say makes you feel more energized and healthy.

Aromatherapy Bath

Depending on how you’re feeling, you can tailor your bath according to your symptoms by using essential oils. Aromatherapy baths can provide relief from stress, anxiety and help with muscle pain. Adding just 5 or 6 drops to your hot bath can turn your bath time into a relaxing spa-like experience.

Epsom Salt Detox Bath

The most common of the salt baths, the Epsom Salt bath is most popular for soothing aching muscles. But it also has other health benefits, including helping the circulatory system and improving nerve functions.

Clay Detox Bath

Although clay has a long history in treating many conditions, most women have used it topically on the face and in body wraps to draw out toxins. Depending on the type—experts suggest “Living Clays” such as Bentonite Clay—clay can effectively suck out heavy-duty toxins when used in the bath through the pores of the skin. Bentonite clay is said to draw out heavy metal toxins by drawing them out through its natural magnetism. Heavy metals can enter the body through any number of ways, the most common by drinking water than hasn’t been properly filtered.

Seaweed Detox Bath

The lymphatic system washes and filters waste products from your body’s cells and tissues, carrying these wastes to elimination organs such as the kidneys, liver and skin. Over time the lymph system can get congested. Nutrient-rich seawater is used to cleanse and rejuvenate the body. A weekly seaweed bath can stimulate lymph circulation and help return your lymphatic system, experts say. Its electromagnetic action releases fluid from congested cells and dissolves fatty wastes, researchers say seaweed bathing promotes increased circulation of blood and lymph flow and has been used as an anti-cellulite remedy. How? When you have better circulation, it helps your body turn into a better fat-burning machine!
