10 Baths That Heal

Posted on: September 12, 2013

Apple cider vinegar – Draws toxins out of the body while relieving sore muscles, sunburn and itchy skin. Naturally deodorizes while providing antiseptic and antifungal properties.

Cold and flu relief – Calms the deep muscle ache of viral infections. Choose from these additions: Epsom salt, ginger root, mustard seed powder, pine needles, marjoram or thyme leaves. Use a combination of several or a single selection.

Oatmeal – Place half a cup of oat flour in a bath bag and submerge in water. Soothes dermatitis, poison ivy and irritated skin while easing high blood pressure and stress.

Baking soda – Dissolve one pound per bath. Alkalizing and detoxifies. Quiets allergic reactions, eczema, chicken pox, hives, itchy skin, insect bites, sunburn and fungal infections.

Stress soother – Catnip, clary sage, chamomile, lavender, hops, neroli and rose buds are all excellent herbs to reduce tension. Fresh or dried flowers as well as essential oils can be used.

Additional tips

Create a bath bag to hold herbs or other healing ingredients by placing a handful in a washcloth and secure with a rubber band. Also, since we want to remove toxins (not absorb more), a chlorine filter for bathwater is indispensable. And don’t forget the natural latex rubber duck.
