My CVS picture from last week showed that I bought 2 bottles of Hydrogen Peroxide and a bag of Epsom Salt. I am so excited to share with y’all what I use them for!
Every book I have read about healthy living and detoxing (getting the toxins out of your body) HIGHLY recommends sitting in a sauna at least a couple of times a week to help your body sweat out the junk that’s in it.
I really don’t want to spend the money on a gym membership with a sauna, and I certainly don’t have the space or money to buy a sauna for my house (which some books recommend doing).
So what is the alternative? How can we get the benefits of a sauna without using a sauna? A friend told me recently about a detox bath that her doctor recommends:
Put around 2 cups of Epsom Salt into a tub of very warm water (whatever is comfortable for you). Sit in the tub for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, pour in two smaller bottles or one large bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide. Sit in the tub another 20 minutes and sweat away!
I also put about a cup of Baking Soda in the tub with the Epsom Salt because I have read that it helps to absorb any Chlorine in the water (so that your body doesn’t absorb it)… and it’s just good for your skin.
I have done this detox bath several times already and I love it! I sweat like crazy during the last 20 minutes and then I take a quick shower to wash it all off when I am done. The heat this creates in your body helps to detoxify it, as well as increases your metabolic rate.
How does this save us money? For me, part of “surviving the stores” is also surviving the the expenses of traditional medicine. If we can stay healthier and use home-remedies when we can, then we can end up saving thousands in medical bills over the years.
