4 Healing Bath Recipes for Inflammation and Detox

Water is by far the most healing element on the planet. Women use water during labour and birth to help relax them and manage pain, we all use water to clean us and to hydrate us. Taking a hot bath can help promote detoxification and relaxation.

Epsom salts are high in magnesium which helps relieve muscle aches, pains, and replenish the magnesium in the body. Epsom salt baths also help reduce inflammation and acne. We absorb magnesium through our skin, which is why you’ll find a lot of magnesium sprays on the market. Carve out some time each week to enjoy some quiet time with one of these healing bath recipes.
