Natural ingredients can be enjoyed in more ways than just your meals, and can benefit you not just from the inside out, but from the outside in, too. One of the best ways is to add one or more to a hot bath. A long soak will draw out toxins and impurities through your skin and allow the absorption of the healing ingredients, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalized. Here are a few DIY natural baths:
1. Eucalyptus bath: This bath is excellent for moisturizing. It includes baking soda, eucalyptus oil, and Epsom salts. These ingredients relieve dry and itchy skin in winter, soothe and moisturize, and support the detoxification process.
2. Ginger bath: Ginger helps you if you have indigestion and nausea because it promotes normal digestion and fights against bacterial infections. The main components of this bath are ginger and Epsom salts. This bath relieves symptoms of skin infections.
3. Coconut milk bath: You can add powdered or liquid coconut oil to your bath along with a few drops of rose water or essential oils. This bath promotes relaxation.
4. Apple cider vinegar bath: This bath is a great option if you are suffering from inflammatory skin problems like eczema or any bacterial or fungal infection because it helps regulate your skin’s pH levels. You can also add rose water or other essential oils to this bath.
It is just as important to detox from the outside as it is from the inside. Your skin detoxifies to keep your body healthy; treat it well. None of these baths require excessive or lengthy preparation and are the perfect ending to a hectic day. Run a hot bath, add any of these ingredients, and let nature take care of you. When you take time to love yourself, and take time out of your busy day, you will thrive and feel at peace.
