  • 1/4 cup Epsom salt
  • 1/4 cup Baking Soda
  • 1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar/ grape vinegar
  • Any choice of the essential oils that you prefer around one tablespoon

Instructions to prepare the detox bath

Take a jar and add both the salts and baking soda to it. Now add warm water to it and mix well. Set this pot aside. Now fill the bath with warm water of the temperature you desire and add vinegar to it. Then add the salt solution to it and mix well. In the end, add the essential oils if you like. Now your detox bath is ready for you to hop in.

Now get in the bath and stay there for around 30 minutes or more. You must note that you would get relaxed after this bath so the best time to take it would be before bedtime as you might get a little light headed afterward.

If you are facing any issues with the skin, you must consult your dermatologist before exposing your skin to the Epsom salt. Sometimes people are allergic to some salts, and it's better to take advice beforehand.

You can make this natural detox bath in a Jacuzzi, a regular bathing tub or the shower tower, whichever you prefer to take.
