When we detox our bodies, we can change what goes inside them, and further, we can take simple measures to cleanse our liver and our colon. Yet, one of the most common sources of pollutants comes from the air around us through our skin, and crosses through our intestinal walls.
We need to have a good soak in the tub to detox our bodies, drawing out the toxins and bringing healing. Soaking in good warm water, about 85 degrees, with a seeping bath tea, will open up your pores and allow true healing to begin. This herbal detox bath tea recipe will detox, and refresh you or your body..
Herbal Detox Bath Tea Recipe
1/8 cup of peppermint leaves (for soothing digestion and an antioxidant)
1/8 cup of chamomile flowers (good for the skin, rashes, eczema, as well as general relaxation)
5 drops of lavender essential oil (for insomnia, skin irritations, relaxation)
1 cup of Dead Sea salts (to remove toxins and replenish your body with minerals)
Place the herbs into a small square of cheesecloth (or an old piece of cloth is fine). Bring the edges together, and tie with a cotton string. Place the herbs and remaining ingredients in the warm bath water about 5 minutes before your bath to seep, then soak yourself. Candles, a locked door, and quiet are required.
