I also love finding different ways to detox - especially after weekends of eating out and having too many glasses of wine (whoops). Usually I will detox by drinking warm lemon water and doing hot yoga, but I recently found this recipe for a detox bath on Pinterest and knew I had to try it. Two of my favorite things combined... a good detox and bath, and it only takes 3 simple ingredients! Once a week, soak in a bath with coconut oil, lavender oil, and Epsom salts... this combo draws out toxins, balances pH levels, and is a great way to bring balance to your body.
3 Ingredient Detox Bath:
3 ounces coconut oil
10 drops lavender oil
2 cups Epsom salts
I used Epsom salts with lavender (that I found at Walgreens), but you can use any type of Epsom salts! Also, any coconut oil will do, but I linked one of my favorites. You really don't have to measure out 3 ounces exactly as the recipe calls...I usually just put in about a tablespoon. If you haven't tried out any essential oils yet, I highly recommend them!! I use them for just about everything. Lavender oil is by far one of my favorites because it's so versatile (read more about its uses here). I've mentioned before that I like to dry brush, and I usually do this right before taking a bath because it exfoliates the skin.. and it's another way to detox. I absolutely loved the combination of this detox bath, and it's already become a weekly ritual for me!
