One of my favorite things to do to rejuvenate myself is to enjoy a nice hot Epsom Salt bath.  Have you tried this? Epsom  Salt baths help remove toxins by increasing blood flow to the skins surface and drawing from the body toxins. Here is what you need to do:   Run a bath as hot as you can stand; pour ½ to 1 cup of Epsom Salt under the running water; dry brush your entire body (to remove dead skin & get the blood flowing under the skin); and now hop in the tub. Soak in the bath as long as you can – aim for 15 – 30 minutes.  Drink water before and during the bath. Now wash your body and rinse well.  After towel drying, lather your body with lotion.  To add a little more pampering, exfoliate your face and apply a very good moisturizer with  SPF.  Have a rejuvenating bath once a week. You will love it and so will your body.

Other substances you may like to add to the bath water:

Apple cider vinegar – 1 cup – works about the same way as Epsom Salts.

Baking Soda – 1 cup – good old fashion remedy for colds, flus, and skin irritations


You can gradually add more Epsom Salt with time – about 1-2 cups.
