A detox bath is a great way to help cleanse the body, relax the mind, and provide extra support to various systems of the body.
There are different types of detox baths that you can make, each providing their own unique benefits.
Some of them are pretty classic, others are baths you might not have even heard about before.
1. Sea Salt Detox Bath
A salt bath is one of the oldest baths out there, and has been used for decades to help people relax. But did you also know that the salt itself can help to pull toxins out of your body, as well as provide extra benefits to your skin. This recipe uses sea salt, so you are getting all natural salt and not the kind that is iodised and sold in bulk in cylindrical containers. Some of the benefits reported from taking this bath: having more energy at the start of the day, not needing a caffeine jolt, and feeling better throughout the day.

2. Essential Oils Detox Bath
You can turn a bath into a sensory sensation just by adding some essential oils to it. The great part is that you can be very strategic with this and include oils based on how you feel. Let’s say you’re having a long day and you feel totally fatigued. There’s an essential oil for that and you’d want to choose peppermint for that bath. They have it all mapped out for you and have you covered whether you’re feeling stressed, depressed, worn out, or if you’re having a headache. It’s customized detoxing in a tub!

3. Hydrogen Peroxide Detox Bath
Also referred to as an oxygen detox bath, the use of hydrogen peroxide gives it plenty of healing properties. For starters it helps your body get rid of toxins, providing that detoxifying effect you’re going for. It is also antibacterial and antiviral, which makes it a great bath to take if you’ve been around a large group of people, have traveled by bus, train, or plane that day, or otherwise have been subjected to a situation that provided plenty of chance of getting germy. The recommended soaking time is a half hour, so enjoy and don’t forget to calm the mind while you’re in there.

4. Ginger Detox Bath
Ginger is a root that has plenty of healthy properties when you eat it, but it can also be used in other ways to help the body, like making a ginger bath. They say you can use different forms of it, either grating fresh ginger into the bath or sprinkling in some ginger powder. The author of the recipe says that it’s a way to get the body to sweat a lot more and get an extra amount of toxins out, similar to taking a sauna or sitting in a steam room. They say it led to feelings of increased energy, feeling cleaner, and kicking the symptoms of an oncoming cold.
