We take a bath everyday to cleanse ourselves from daily dirt and sweat from our skin. But have you heard about detox bath? Detox bath is truly an ancient technique to get rid of harmful toxins present inside the body. It also helps skin to absorb all the minerals and nutrients that are needed by the body in various amounts and needs.
These steps can help you lead a wonderful and enjoyable bath after a stressful day:
Choose a day when you’re free enough to spare at least 40 minutes for this bath. First 20 minutes will be dedicated to cleaning all the toxins off the body and then the rest of the time is used to absorb nutrients.
1. Fill Water:
Fill the tub with water and also don’t forget to use a chlorine filter if you have one ready.

Epsom salt also called magnesium sulphate is added to the water. Sulphate present helps wash away toxins from your body.
The amount of salt differs from person to person:

One or two cups of baking soda is added. It is known for detoxification, and will also fight against fungal diseases. Additionally, it makes skin soft.
