Detoxing with your cast iron bath

It’s always a good idea to naturally detox your body, and what better way to do it than soaking in a nice warm bath? Cast iron baths are great for this because they encourage you to relax and soak for longer.

Detoxification has been around for many years, with the majority of experts referring to the skin as a ‘third kidney’. When they talk about this, they mention toxins are excreted through sweating; therefore taking a bath helps your skin and body rid of any toxins.

Not only this, but you can also give your skin a chance to absorb nutrients and minerals from the water. Therefore it’s vital you add the right products for your desired outcome. Here are some tips to help you detox in your bath.

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to soak. It is wise to leave about 40 minutes spare at least. Detox baths shouldn’t be rushed if you want the best results. The first 20 minutes should be spent allowing your body to rid of any toxins, and the next half for absorbing any minerals you add to the bath water.

Firstly, you need to fill the tub. If you own a chlorine filter it’s recommended you use it. Make sure you fill up with hot water, ensuring the temperature is high enough so you sweat but not too hot that it scalds. Magnesium sulphate, or Epsom salts, is something you can add to the bath water to help with clearing those toxins. It is also brilliant for combating hypertension.

Other things you can add are a cup of baking soda and ginger. The baking soda leaves your skin feeling soft, and ginger is great for raising your heat levels. Some sensitive skin types may not benefit with using ginger, as it can make skin turn red; so just be careful.

Aromatherapy is an option that can make your detox much more relaxing. Adding therapeutic oils such as lavender or tea tree oil can help not just your body, but your mind also. However, make sure you get in and out of the bath carefully as your skin may be slippery from the oils.
