I've done the epson salts for muscles, and keep thinking about doing an actual "detox" bath... but I have a 4 yr old.... I don't have that long to sit in the bath tub!

I have taken an Epsom salts bath for sore muscles.... Not sure how much it helped but I really wanted some relief.

I have a great deal of sinus issues and think this might help with that. I'll give it a try. Thanks!

Here's a link to a website that I have used for good health advice (non-traditional/herbal).

ral-remedy.aspx

It recommended the following for a detox bath: Detox bath: Baking soda and apple cider make a wonderful spa-like bath for soaking away aches and pains and detoxing. It also cleans the tub and the drain, as a bonus!

I've soaked in epson salts before. I soaked not as a detox but to relieve sore muscles.

Occasionally I have a lavender epsom salts bath.
Once in Germany, near the Polish border, we went to a beer bath and after we had a massage. It was lovely.

I have used Epsom salts, sea salts, seaweeds, gone to hot springs, swam in oceans.

I'll try the ginger next time.

Yes! Epsom salts relieve tired and achy muscles and pains! I have a recipe I love for detoxing.....2 cups of epsom salt, 1 cup of baking soda, and 1/4 c of fresh ginger cut into cubes. The ginger will float in your water but provides great detox. It will make you sweat out impurities and feels great for hours afterwards!

Warm bath, either bath salts or epsom salts, sounds great. Whether detoxes or not, sounds like it would be a great stress reliever.

It sound like a lot of work, I got a kitten in September, he love to have bath, every night we try to see who get in the tub first, so I don't think I 'll try it, because he like to taste everything, and if I am stay in the tub too long, he come get my toe.

Not sure what a detox bath is - but we've used Epsom salts in the bath water to relieve muscle soreness. Warm baths [esp. in winter] are great for de-stressing and helping with sleep.

What exactly is a detox bath? What do they do to give you one?

I've done salt baths to release negative energy. But I've never heard of it as a detox bath.

Now I'm no professional, this is just a recommendation for anyone looking to try a detox bath. I tinkered around with different baths and this is the one I finally came across that worked. With this one I experimented with the ginger and different essential oils. For me personally, I found that using ginger tea bags works better than using fresh ginger, and in particular I use 1 or 2 of the Traditional Medicinals ginger tea (on the box it says it's a digestive aid). If you add ginger, be warned YOU WILL SWEAT, but that's how you know it's working. As far as essential oils, I use 10 drops of lavender essential oil. With using oils though you have to check to make sure that it is 100% essential oil. As far as the smell, I've never experienced it, but in a holistic health class I took at school my teacher, who was also a holistic practitioner, said she'd heard of people experiencing it; it's different for everyone. Hope this helps!

I've never tried them. It seems like it's a placebo effect more than anything else.

I tried it once, for kicks. The reviews I've found said they felt amazing and destressed after. I felt no different. It really didn't do anything, the one I tried is one floating around the internet and the girl who started it said she could smell the alcohol leaving her system... I don't think they have much to them.

I have not tried detox baths but the concept sounds interesting. At this time of the year ANY excuse for a hot bath works for me :)

I got into them recently looking to get rid of a cold I had. I took one once I got sick and it went away a lot faster than any cold I had before. I learned then that detox baths can be taken regularly for a number of other reasons, including stress (which is what I now take weekly detox baths for). Has anyone else ever tried detox or salt baths before?
