What is a Detox Bath
We all know what a bath is right? Adding detox to that would mean a kind of body (or part of the body) wash or soak done in a mixture of water and special ingredients for the purpose of relaxing, ridding the body of toxins and all other impurities.
History of Detox Bath
Detoxification is not a recent discovery, the ancients practiced many forms of detoxification and detox baths. This practice cut across many cultures. The Ayurveda in India believed that most illnesses were a result of toxins in the body. They held the beliefs so much that they had methods of detoxifying plants before consumption.
The Egyptians, the Romans and many other cultures used these methods for health and relaxation. Native Americans used Sweat lodges, similar to today’s Sauna, this stimulated the body to sweat and pass out impurities.
Other methods included bathing in water mixed with aromatic oils, herbs and even bathing in certain springs or water bodies due to the healing powers those waters were believed to have possessed. Socrates noticed that fishermen fishing on a certain sea always had their cuts and injuries healed quickly. Therefore, he recommended full body baths in those waters for skin ailments and it produced results.
Types of Detox Bath
There are many ways to detox and stimulate the body to help the detox process. One of them is bathing, there are many kinds of detox baths, your choice depends on what you are trying to achieve. Here are a few:

This is use majorly for detoxification and removing impurities from the body. This often involves including beneficial botanical products to stimulate the body’s natural detoxification pathways.
Amazing Benefits of Detox Baths
If detox baths did not have any benefits, I doubt it would have lasted over 2000 years. Some of the benefits include:
Beautiful and Younger Looking Skin
One of the reasons your skin seems to appear dry and flaky many times could be due to lack of moisture and impurities. When you detox, the impurities are brought out and your skin is hydrated. Giving you a younger looking and softer skin, doing this regularly will help you look younger for longer.
Helps to De-stress and Relax
The hot water mixture acts like a massage. A twenty minute soak in our Pink Himalayan Sea Salt will balance your metabolism, helping you forget the day’s stress for improved relaxation.
Helps for Weight Loss
Babes if you want to still be able to fit into those jeans of yours, you should try using our Detox Bath for weight loss. Toxins and impurities disrupt our body metabolism, which is necessary for weight loss. When you detoxify, you can go back to losing weight easily.
Balances the Body’s Natural pH
We both know how badly hormonal imbalance can ruin a lady’s life. From irregular menstrual cycles, to cellulite, acne eruptions, PMS and many others… just listing them is depressing. But you can avoid them, with sea salt detox you can reverse your body to its natural pH and also restore hormonal balance.
Helps to detoxify the body system
Detoxification is the simply the process of removing toxins from the body. The body has a natural way of detoxifying; this is one of the functions of the kidney and the liver. The toxins come out through sweat and excretion. What a detox bath does is to stimulate this, so when you detox you remove unwanted chemicals and poisons from your body.
Fights Body Odour
A detox bath cleans your skin from the outside in, not only does the dirt on and underneath your skin go away, odour causing organisms also are dealt with. Therefore, you can come out with confidence knowing you smell great even without a deodorant.
Most Effective Detox Bath
The particular kind of detox you decide on depends on what you want to achieve. Just as we have discussed above, you can choose any for your detox process.
One of the most effective and probably amongst the least popular is green detox bath. Everyone one know of the therapeutic benefits of consuming green tea from improving vitality to weight loss and detoxification. The way green tea works is that it stimulates detoxification and provides the liver (the body’s main detoxification organ) with enzymes and nutrients to support its detoxification.
However, green tea is not only for drinking. You can also soak in it, as it also helps rid the liver of all the by-products of its detoxification process, so that it can do it again. There’s no getting around it, when it comes to detoxification, Green Tea baths are amongst the most effective.
Another very effective detox bath is sea salt, (Dead sea salt and Himalayan Salt). Our Himalayan Pink Salt is gotten from seas in the Himalayan region. It contains 84 minerals over 40 more minerals in the Dead Sea salt.
How to Do a Detox Bath
We’ve seen the cool things a detox bath will do for you, so how do you do a detox bath in a way that you’ll get all the results?
First you need hot water, as hot as you can stand and if you discover the water is too hot while you are in the tub, just add cold water. Add your salts and other ingredients such as aromatic oils and other herbs. Add 1 to 2 cups of our Himalayan pink salt, then a few drops of essential oils if wanted for added benefits. Soak in the bath for 40 minutes. Then come out, and rinse out yourself. You can do this without the oils if you like.
Take at least a cup of water before and after the process, as it could be very dehydrating. For this same reason, it is advised that you do a bath detox a maximum of 3 times a week, not more than once a day. And make sure you have ample time to rest after the process, because it can leave you tired and weak because your muscles are all relaxed. However, when you wake up or after you take a rest, you’ll feel great.
There are various detox bath recipes where it’s suggested that you mix various ingredients. However, various proponents have advised that it is wrong to mix certain kinds of ingredients like salts and Apple Cider Vinegar, since one is alkaline, and the other is acidic. However, a mixture of salts is okay. So you can mix Epsom salt with Sea salt, in equal quantities.
Phew! Here we are! That was long right? I believe you’re all fired up for a detox bath. For your sea salt detox bath you know you don’t have to look far. We have Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, mined from the Himalayan region, packed and sold in its purest form without any chemical alterations. This is the best way to pamper your skin and when you are done, you'll be very glad you did!
