The last week we have been fighting the FLU...blah! That sneaky little bug wormed its way into my son then took up residence in the rest of us. When it first hit my oldest guy I decided then and there, it was time for a detox bath. (he loves to soak in a bath when he is feeling under the weather.) Below are a few of my favorite concoctions for you to create. The bath salts are really easy to make and put in a pretty mason jar and give as gifts;). I hope you try one of them. Detox baths really do work. I encourage you to try it, sick or not!
"Sugar Mamma's Detox Bath Salts"
1 Cup Epsom Salts
1/2 Cup Fresh Ground Ginger Root
1/3 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Lavender Essential Oil
Grab a full glass of cool water with lemon and head for the bathroom. Fill the tub with hot water, as hot as you can take! Add salts and swish around. Sink in and relax for at LEAST 20 mins! Sip your water throughout. Take care getting out of the tub as you may feel a bit light headed;). Continue to hydrate throughout the day.
FYI: Epsom salts remove toxins from the body. Ginger intensifies the sweat and the baking soda helps neutralize the chlorine in the the water.
"Cold and Flu Remedy"
Add 3 pints HYDROGEN PEROXIDE 3% to a hot bath.
Add 2 ounces of GROUND GINGER
Soak for about 30 minutes. Drink lots of water while soaking.
After about 5 mins of soaking I literally started to sweat! I recommend doing this bath before heading to bed, but not before chugging a few more glasses of water;)!
FYI: The hydrogen peroxide helps purge toxins from the body. It is also antibacterial and antiviral, a bonus! The ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory, it will increase blood circulation and help eliminate toxins through sweat.
