DIY Detox Bath Recipe and Benefits for Kids and Adults

Detox Bath Recipe

Welcome to the world of natural wellness, where self-care meets relaxation! In this blog post, we're diving into the rejuvenating realm of detox baths. Perfect for both kids and adults, these baths offer a soothing escape from the stresses of life while promoting overall well-being. Let's explore a simple yet effective recipe using ingredients like Epsom salt, baking soda, hot water, and optional Young Living Essential oils.

Detox Bath Recipe:


- 1 cup Epsom salt

- 1/2 cup baking soda

- Hot water (as per preference)

- Optional: Young Living Essential oils (Thieves, Breathe Again and Lavender are our go tos.)


1. Prepare Your Bath: Fill your bathtub with comfortably hot water. The warmth enhances the detoxification process by opening up pores and promoting, sweat and relaxation.

2. Add Epsom Salt: Sprinkle 1 cup of Epsom salt into the bathwater. Epsom salt, rich in magnesium, helps soothe sore muscles, reduce stress, and eliminate toxins from the body.

3. Mix in Baking Soda: Add 1/2 cup of baking soda to the water. Baking soda aids in alkalizing the body and can help soothe irritated skin, leaving it soft and refreshed.

4. Optional Essential Oils: For added benefits, add a few drops of your favorite pure essential oils. (We like Young Living Essential oils. Our go tos are Lavender, Thieves blend or R.C. blend.)

5. Swirl and Soak: Gently swirl the water to ensure the ingredients dissolve. Now, immerse yourself or your little ones into the calming bath and soak for at least 20-30 minutes.

Health Benefits:

1. Relieves Stress: Epsom salt and essential oils work together to create a serene atmosphere, easing stress and promoting mental well-being.

2. Muscle Relaxation: The magnesium in Epsom salt aids in muscle relaxation, making this bath perfect after a strenuous day.

3. Skin Detoxification: Baking soda helps cleanse the skin, removing impurities and promoting a healthy glow.

4. Improved Sleep: A detox bath before bedtime can enhance sleep quality, leaving you feeling refreshed the next morning.
