Roman Detox Bath

-Roman Bath its simple to put together great for detoxing the body.... Its helps releive inflammation of the joints,connective tissue also breaks down soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue.

You may wonder how these simple ingredients can draw toxins out of your body. It i actually the combination of the hot water and ingredients working together that give you the detoxifying action. First, the hot water in the bath pulls toxins out of the body to the surface of the skin. The Epsom salts aid this detoxifing process by making you sweat, which is body’s natural way of releasing toxins. Poisons are also drawn out of the body as the water in the bath naturally cools

-The other two ingredients – sea salts and baking soda – also help to cleanse and purify the body of toxins. Sea salt is widely known for its powers of purification. Since baking soda is highly alkaline, it also helps encourage poisons to leach from your system.

-You should pour the detox bath mix into the water as the bath is filling. Draw your water as hot as you can comfortably stand. The hotter the water you use, the better, more thorough detox you will have. Twenty to thirty minutes is usually an adequate amount of time to soak in the bath. It is usually a good idea to drink plenty of water during or after your bath to replace the water you have sweated out. You might also want to scrub or rub your skin after you finish soaking to encourage all the toxins brought to the surface of the skin to clear out. As a word of caution, however, if you have heart disease, high blood pressure or are diabetic, check with your doctor before trying a detox bath.

***Here is the ingredients needed, Whole Foods has all what you need or Sun Harvest..

1) one cup of sea salts,
2) two cups of baking soda
3) one cup of Epsom salts.
After mixing these ingredients well, you can store them in a glass jar with a screw-on lid. You only need about ¼ cup of the mix per bath so this recipe makes enough mix for about 16 bath...

Add any oil you like to help cleanse the Body
Ex. Lavender drops is great for stress or anxiety
-Add aloe for your Skin

Enjoy your Bath
