Detox bath products are a soothing and cleansing approach to self-care. Not only are they made to comfort, but they’re meant to invoke feelings of refreshment, cleansing, and invigoration.
During the busy holiday season, pour some epsom salt or sea salt into your bath water. It's an excellent way to incorporate “me” time in your bath. You can even enjoy some wine while in the tub.
How A Detox Bath Works
Detox baths work in different ways –– one of them is by using soothing salts and aromatherapy at the same time. Sea salt or epsom salt naturally cleanses and relaxes, while pure essential oils will make you feel refreshed and invigorated.
USP Grade epsom salt and sea salt dissolve in the water to soothe and comfort the body. For this purpose, they’ve been used for generations and are a common ingredient in foot and sitz bath soaks.
Meanwhile, pure essential oils provide the most authentic aromatherapy experience. Without synthetic or unnatural fragrances, you get the true scent of orange, peppermint, frankincense, cypress, lavender, or any other plant or herb, rather than someone else’s interpretation of it.
Pure essential oils are typically less irritating and harmful to the senses than synthetic fragrances and add to the ambiance of a bath rather than creating an overwhelming scent experience.
What creates the detoxifying bath experience are the essential oils. Epsom salt blends for detoxification, like our epsmRx Detox Bath Salt at Better Bath Better Body, will typically feature bright, fresh, and cleansing aromas like lemon, peppermint, orange, eucalyptus, and cypress, which are then grounded with comforting, warm, or relaxing aromas.
This provides a well-balanced bath and one that keeps you centered while feeling invigorated and refreshed. When aromatherapy is paired with the power of sea salt or epsom salt in a bath, you get an approach to self-care that pays attention to all of your senses.
Detox is just one of the many benefits of a bath. You can take one to energize yourself, relax after a long day, or soothe discomfort.
Bath Soaks For The Holidays Or A Post-Holiday Cleanse
Detoxifying bath blends are made to refresh you and cleanse you from all of the stresses and the busyness of the holiday season. Some of the soaks we have at Better Bath Better Body perfect for a detoxification bath are:
Lilliuma Detoxify Foot Soak – Our Lilliuma Detoxify Foot Soak is perfect for a foot bath but may be used in a full-body bath as well. This blend is made of Mediterranean sea salt, fractionated MCT coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and essential oils of clean lemon, bright orange, and cozy ginger.
Ginger works to center the blend and keep it grounded, lemon cleanses, and orange brightens with a touch of tart sweetness.
To use in a full-body bath, use ½ to 1 cup in a standard-size tub. To use in a foot soak, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the blend per gallon of warm water used.
Detox Foot Soak – Like the Lilliuma Detoxify Foot Soak, our Detox Foot Soak is an invigorating foot bath that can also be used for the entire body. The base of this blend is USP Grade epsom salt.
Providing aroma to it are pure essential oils of lemon, peppermint, frankincense, and lavender. Lemon and peppermint provide the clean, zingy, and bright note one seeks out in a detox blend.
Frankincense grounds and lavender soothes with gentle relaxation.
Stress Relief Bath Soak – While our Stress Relief Bath Soak isn’t a detox-specific blend, it’s perfect for bringing about those soothing, energizing, and refreshing feelings one seeks out when taking a detoxifying bath.
It is infused with the essential oils of cool eucalyptus and spearmint. Spearmint works beautifully with all of the scents and moods of the holiday season, while eucalyptus is a naturally refreshing aroma that invigorates.
Enhancing Your Holiday Detox Baths
Washing away the stresses of the holiday season doesn’t have to stop at your bath. Music, books, candles, and lighting can set the mood and create a special experience.
Music that makes you feel relaxed, along with the aromas of the bath and the comfort of the warm soothing water, simply brings more of your senses into the cleanse of the detox.
Your bath is your self-care practice, and you can customize it however you see fit.
