Detoxifying Bath

Thursday, 02 January 2014 18:03  by Jessica W.

During the holidays, thoughts of health are often momentarily forgotten. After these potential excesses, taking the time to reconnect with health and wellness can serve us well. Self-care allows us to remember the many ways we care for ourselves and reconnect with our mental health through self-time and reflection.

A warm bath provides a soothing and tranquil atmosphere. Adding green tea provides the powerful antioxidants and detoxifying properties of tea leaves. These properties are beneficial taken both internally and externally. A bathtub infusion of tea renews skin, targets damaging free radicals and calms inflammation, all in addition to the stress relieving qualities of bath time.

Choose your favorite green tea. This can be jasmine, a fruit flavored tea or a high-quality plain tea. Wrap 10 tablespoons of loose tea in cheesecloth or tie together 10 bags of tea. Begin filling the tub with hot water, being sure to place the leaves beneath the running water. When the bath is well infused and has reached a comfortable temperature, step in and soak for 20 minutes.

You can add Epsom salts if you would like to boost the detoxifying power of this bath.

After the busy holiday season, use this time to reconnect with peace and calm. Like the tranquil snow that blankets the earth, concentrate on rest, renewal and redevelopment. And most of all, enjoy yourself!
