Feeling a little sluggish?

Take a homemade detox bath

When you have had one too many vodka martinis in a weekend, start a detox program by eating fresh fruits and veggies ONLY for a day or two. It is also great to combine it with a detox bath. I do this everytime I feel a little low energy or when I’ve overindulged. The recipe is below but please check with your primary care provider if you have high blood pressure or any cardiac problems. This recipe helps your body maintain a more alkaline enviroment which is great for your skin and immune system.

Basic Salt Soak Bath Formula: Minerals and salts make the bath water feel silky and leave your skin cleansed and soft.

1 cup sea salts
2 cups baking soda
1 cup Epsom salts
1 to 2 tablespoons glycerin per bath

Combine the sea salts, baking soda, and Epsom salts in a bowl. Stir to blend. Pour 1/4 cup or so into the bath while the tub is filling. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons glycerin to keep your skin from drying out (more for dry skin, less for oily skin) and essential oils of choice.
