What You Need To Know About Detox Bath
Feb 2019

Imagine sliding into a tub of warm water, infused with essential oils and bath salts. Isn’t it relaxing just with the thought? Well, that’s what a detox bath does. It is a natural way to eliminate toxins from the body that we’re probably not even aware of. A detox bath involves natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial ingredients such as ginger, Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate), and aroma oils to be added to warm water. You can soak yourself in it for an hour. When Epsom salt is added to water it breaks down into magnesium and sulfate which enter the body and relaxes the muscles and stiff joints. It further helps in eliminating toxins and stress from the body.

Here’s What Studies Say
Although studies have not yet shown any clear evidence regarding the efficacy of Detox bath in relieving the symptoms of cold and flu, but there is a significant improvement if you often experience soreness and muscle aches.

Some essential oils like lavender and chamomile are known to have a soothing effect for symptoms of cold and flu. These essential oils also have calming effects on your mind and body.

It is also believed that Epsom salt raises the magnesium level in our body and it is helpful in relieving body pain by disposing of the lactic acid from our body. By dissolving Epsom salt in your bath water, you can expect a rejuvenated feeling.
