How to Take a Detox Bath



  1. Draw a bath of HOT water. The hotter the water, the more detoxing benefits of the bath! (If the water is too hot by the time you get in, add some colder water to cool things down a bit.)

  2. Pour 1/2 to 1 cup of bath salts into the hot running water.

  3. Dissolve 1/2 cup to 1 cup of the bentonite clay in the water as well. It may help to dissolve the clay in a cup of warm water first if it seems to clump up. (Do NOT use a metal spoon to mix the clay! Use wooden or plastic.)

  4. Add a couple drops of any desired essential oils. Lavender is great for relaxing or to relieve tension. Peppermint is good if you have a headache. Eucalyptus is a great one to clear congestion. These are three of our favorites! You can find all of these online at Plant Therapy

  5. Soak and relax in the bath for 20-30 minutes! That’s it! For more information on salt detox baths, see information here and on clay detox baths, see information here. And if you want to make your bath extra special and pampering, you can add some homemade moisturizing bath bombs!

  6. Be aware that the salt is truly natural. It will leave a clay-colored sediment in your bath tub–which is quickly and easily washed down the drain. You may have to wipe the clay off the tub with a towel.
