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

DIY Detox Bath Recipe

Make sure to drink plenty of water or liquids to replenish the body after bath.

  • 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.
