Epsom Salt Bath Detox

This is a firm favourite in my detox regime and I also find it incredibly relaxing, especially when the horrible anxieties take control of my brain or I start to have niggley pains in my bones!! Having had a compromised immune system for the last year, these baths have helped me try and get rid of any heavy metals and neutralise any toxins that I may have left in my body from the silicone implants.

As our skin is our largest organ, it’s also our main detox organ.  That’s why I love this detox bath as it is so beneficial for us during our explant and the following months after. Epsom salts are made up from magnesium and sulphate which our skin can easily absorb. Using them in the bath stimulates the lymph system and increases the oxygen flow around out bodies, which aids detoxification of the nasties.  They also support your liver and can help with die-off symptoms if you are eliminating candida, parasites and pathogens (bad bacteria in your gut).

The sulphate in the Epsom salts is an anti-inflammatory, an anti-depressant and helps to detoxify our bodies. We need sulphate to make stomach acid and stimulate the pancreas to form digestive enzymes, they help break down the food into useful components. It also helps to keep our precious gut wall healthy from a syndrome called leaky gut.  It is also a necessary salt to help detoxify our bodies.

Soaking in a deep bath of Epsom salts will also help boost the magnesium levels in your body as they are so easily absorbed. This also helps our muscles to relax and that’s why taking one of these baths before bed, is the perfect time.

This is how I take my Epsom Salt bath with a few added extras to really detox.

Water Temperature

This was my first big question when I started having these baths. I sometimes use hot water, if I want a sweat out the toxins, but I find this can dry out my skin and strip it of its protective oils. If I have a hot bath, I am only in it for 20 minutes max and then I get out the bath carefully (sometimes it can make you feel a bit dizzy) and have a cool shower. I do prefer to use warm water as I can really soak in the bath for  30 to 40 minutes.  This then allows enough time for the body to remove toxins and absorb all those beneficial minerals in the bath.

Essentail oils

I also like to add in an essential oil to take away from the smell of the apple cider vinegar,  I mainly use lavender but you can also use tea tree oil and rose essential oil too.

French Green Clay

Clay removes chemicals, toxins and pollutants from the body and traps them. If I am feeling super indulgent I also put a clay face mask on at the same time.

Himalayan Salts

Another added bonus that helps to draw out the toxins and cleanse the body.

 

Epsom Bath Detox 

  • 2 cups of Epsom Salts
  • 2 Tbsp of Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp or a large handful of French Green Clay
  • 1 cup of himalayan salts (optional)

I try and have one of these baths 2-3 times a week.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. xx

      Hi, having a foot soak would be very relaxing and may help detox in some form although I am not sure how much. However, I am unsure if it would have the same effect as a bath. I am about to post my detox protocol after explant and another way I detox through sweating out the toxins, is to have sauna. Ax
