Why Use Essential Oils for Bathing?

Essential oils are powerful and effective natural substances derived from plants, and they have a wide variety of uses and benefits. In fact, one of the most popular uses for essential oils is for cleansing the body and mind.

The popularity of this practice has led to essential oil detox baths being one of the most sought after essential oil recipes. Not only do they help the body to detoxify, but a detox bath also acts as a natural pain reliever and helps to relieve stress and tension.

Best Essential Oils for Detox Bath

While you can detox without essential oils, it's always useful to have some oils on hand for a variety of purposes. Everything from relieving stress, to keeping skin baby soft, to boosting your immune system during cold and flu season.

Essential oils in bath water can increase circulation, tone the body, and assist with detoxification. They also offer relaxation or stimulation, depending on your oil choice.

  • Cypress
  • Juniper Berry
  • Frankincense
  • Lemongrass
  • Palmarosa
  • Petitgrain
  • Pine
  • Lemon
  • Spearmint
  • Ginger
  • Lavender
  • Geranium
  • Grapefruit

Epsom Salt for Detox Bath

Epsom salt is a mineral-rich salt that is loaded with magnesium. Magnesium may help the body get rid of toxins that worsen inflammation. Reducing inflammation can also decrease swelling, stiffness, and pain.

Here are more benefits of an Epsom salt bath:

  • Helps to soften rough, dry skin
  • May provide pain relief and reduce swelling
  • Reduces feelings of stress and overwhelm
  • Eases muscle tension and fatigue
  • Promotes better sleep

So, if you are planning on doing a detox bath, or even if you just want to improve the general health of your skin, consider adding a cup of Epsom salt to your bath.

DIY Detox Bath Recipe

When used in a detox bath, essential oils can help boost your ability to sweat, assist in the removal of toxins and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Make sure to drink plenty of water or liquids to replenish the body after bath.

You Will Need:

  • 2 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops Geranium essential oil
  • 2 drops Lemongrass essential oil
  • 1 teaspoon Jojoba Oil (or desired carrier oil)
  • 1 cup Epsom Salt
  • 1 bathtub of Hot water

Directions: Add in Epsom salt while filling the bathtub. Epsom salt will dissolve quickly if put under running water. Mix oils together, then add to bathwater after tub is full. Swirl the water to disperse the oils before entering the bathtub. Soak 20-30 minutes.

Use a detox bath daily, weekly, or monthly depending on needs. Be cautious stepping in and out of the bathtub as it may be slippery from the oils.

Follow up your bathing with an essential oil massage blend.
