The benefits of a detox bath.
Detoxing is important for our health and one of the best ways to help your body as each day we ingest/inhale toxins and chemicals from various sources – food preservatives and chemicals, polluted air, water etc. Our body from the time we are born tries to maintain homeostasis or balance but if our ingestion of toxins and chemicals is greater than can be excreted each day our body stores these in the fatty tissues of the body so it’s a great idea to have a regular detox bath at least once a week.
A good suggestion is to add the ingredients below to a bath (only as hot as you can tolerate as it helps to open the pores of the skin) for 20 – 60 minutes scrubbing occasionally with a face washer.
Baking Soda/Bicarbonate of Soda
1 capful in the bath
Absorbs radiation and heavy metals.
Alkalizes the body.
Epsom Salts/Magnesium Sulphate
2 capfuls in the bath
Magnesium pulls toxins out of your body. It’s the fourth most abundant mineral in your body.
About 99 percent of all the magnesium in your body is stored in your bones, muscles, and soft tissues and is involved in more than 300 different biochemical reactions in your body, helping nerves and muscles work properly, producing energy, making and fixing DNA and RNA, regulating blood pressure, forming proteins and much more. It is also the foundational micronutrient for hormone pathways and neurotransmitter regulation.

BE LITE contains essential oils that are detoxifying and diuretic in their action and it encourages the body to speed up its process of elimination. Aromatherapy works with our body to speed up the process of elimination and due to the diuretic nature of some of the essential oils helps encourage our body to break down the water capsule around the toxins, speeds up circulation and helps rid our body of these toxins without overwhelming our body. This special blend also contains sweet almond, macadamia and wheatgerm oils which are wonderfully moisturising to the skin.
Baking Soda and Epsom salts help detox radiation, fungus on the body, pesticides and heavy metals. You can also add ½ to 1 cup Bentonite Clay which helps pull poisons out.
