There is nothing more relaxing than a nice warm bath in the evening to unwind from a busy day. For centuries, these warm baths have been viewed as a way of boosting overall health. They help pull toxins from our skin and absorb helpful minerals and nutrients. Think about your daily exposure to toxins; pollution, pesticides, processed foods, etc. According to nutritional pioneer Dr. Hazel Parcells, 65% of body cleansing is achieved via the skin! When our body is clogged up with these toxins it can negatively affect our health.
Ready to try a detox bath? Start with drinking one full glass of water (it’s important to be well hydrated). Fill tub with as hot a water as you can stand. If you have chlorine and fluoride in your water, consider purchasing a filter for your faucet or shower head. You do not want the chemicals to be absorbed into the skin as you take your detox bath. Allow yourself 30 to 40 minutes to bathe in Dr Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution, Pre & Post Workout, 3 Pound Bag, pure bicarbonate Baking Soda or unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar. I like to rotate between these three using each one separately. When incorporating something new, begin with baby steps. For children, start by adding a small amount to the bath water and gradually increase to 1/2 cup per bath. For adults, gradually increase the amount added to 2 cups per bath. For more benefits, sprinkle a few drops of essential oils (lavender or eucalyptus) to the water. During the first 20 minutes of bathing, your body will remove its toxins, and the next 20 minutes it will soak up the minerals in the water.
We encourage you to do your research on the benefits of detox baths. If you are pregnant or have a health condition, consult your physician or medical professional before taking a detox bath.

I love this! We have hard water, what factors should I consider when doing detox bath? I see that Berkey water filter has shower head, but Berkey water filter is mostly for kitchen use, and have to use direct well water to filter rather than using soft water to filter as it will wear out rapidly.
Any suggestions to balance with the water? I LOVE baths!!!! Would you post Farm Girl Fresh bath bombs suggestions???? 🙂
We would still recommend a Berkey water filter for your bathroom water. You may need to clean the filter more often or replace as needed.
The cheapest, easiest, most pure and wonderfully relaxing detox bath is to simply put pure Epsom salt in your bath water with a few drops of pure lavender essential oil.
