Bath Detox Recipe and Cellulite Treatment Recipes
Detox while you lounge in the tub a dub dub! I don’t have to tell you how much I enjoy my soaks!
I do want to mention that some of the products out on the market are worth purchasing for this as well. I love my Buddha Nose Detox Bath Salts, and my new SoCal Cleanse Bath Soak and I soon to be reviewed Eucalyptus Bath by 100% Pure. They have many additional ingredients such as herbs, kelp or other algae to help aid in the detox process. I am not just telling you this because I work with them, I really do love them. I used my 100% Bath Treatment, in less then 2 weeks!!! That is why I needed to find a more eco-friendly solution, and a more wallet friendly solution too!!
***If you have the time, and resources, dry brushing your skin before these treatments, and before any shower, will really help to get your lymph system moving!***
Detox Bath Ingredients
- 1 Cup Epsom Salt
- 1 Cup Baking Soda (helps rid the chlorine)
- 1 Cup Natural Sea Salt (get the stuff that says “air dried by the sun”)
- 1/4 cup grated FRESH ginger. I place this in a tea infuser so I don’t clog the drain!
The Essential oils in this, are optional, as is the Grated Ginger. Use one or the other, don’t use the EO’s and the Ginger together!
Take the bath as warm as you can stand it. Add the salt mixture and the ginger and glide it around before you sink down. This water is good for your whole body, face, hair etc. Now soak for at least 30-45 minutes. The ginger will help you sweat, and release toxins, and as the water cools down, you will start absorbing some of the yummy goodness in the bath. If you prefer to use the Essential Oils below, the same rules apply for length of bath.
If you have a massage tool, like the one to the right, or something similar, you can also use that massage any areas of concern while you are soaking.
Cellulite Treatment Essential Oil Bath Blend
- 6 Drops of Black Pepper Seed oil
- 6 drops of juniper oil
- 5 drops of Geranium oil
- 5 drops of Fennel
- 10 drops of grapefruit oil
- 8 drops of lemon oil
- roughly 15 Drops of a carrier oil. I suggest Avocado oil, or Carrot Oil.
Mix this really well, and add about 1 teaspoon per bath.
Use this instead of ginger! Don’t use both. all other directions from above are correct.
Cellulite Intense Massage Oil
- 5 drops Fennel
- 10 drops Grapefruit
- 5 drops Juniper
- 1/4 cup carrier oil MIX WELL.
Use this on all problem areas every morning and every night. The longer the better, and the more aggressive the better, no that doesn’t mean bruising will help! I simply mean, don’t use a light hand!
Of course drinking lots of water during this whole process is key! You can do this baths as often as you like, but not more then once a day. You aren’t going to see results immedietly but with time you will! The Dry Skin Brushing is so good for you too!
The better your diet, full of veggies and fruits and natural fibers, and no processed foods, the faster results will come as well!
Use the bathing time wisely, deep condition your hair, smooth out your heels, put on a facial mask, or even a back mask! (i do at least one of the above and read, but I know some of you have kids! maybe you can read to them from the bath? lol)
