How to Take a Baking Soda Bath

Quick, easy recipe to make a baking soda bath. Baking soda baths can help to purge impurities from your body.

Baking soda baths can be a refreshing and relaxing end to a stressful day. They can also help to purge your body and skin of harsh impurities that we accumulate from everyday living. Baking soda is proven to expel poisons and unneeded chemicals from our bodies and it also promotes healthy blood pH levels (measure of acidity or alkalinity). This helps the blood to carry more oxygen through your cells and more proficiently eliminates waste. Good old, multi-purpose baking soda can even help to destroy cancer cells by creating a harsh environment that doesn't allow them to survive in your body. Below is a quick and easy recipe for making your very own cancer fighting, poison expelling baking soda bath.

1. First you'll need to begin to fill a nicely clean bath tub up to your satisfactory level. Be sure not to fill too high or it may spill over when you get in!

2. Using hot water is recommended because it does help to cleanse the body better by making you sweat, but using very hot water often isn't recommended. Bathing or showering in very hot water consistently can actually dry out your skin and even cause skin to age more rapidly. So, very hot water can be good because of the steam that makes you sweat out impurities, but be careful not to use extremely hot water all the time.

3. While the tub is still filling with that nicely warm water, you may now add the baking soda. Some people recommend only using about 1/2 cup of baking soda, but using more won't harm you. Use as much as you feel comfortable using. You can also couple baking soda with Epsom salt and sea salt for an even more powerful detox bath. You could go the extra mile and add your favorite essential oils like lavender or any scented oil or bath beads to enjoy the relaxing effects of aroma therapy.

4. Now all that is left is to enjoy yourself for the next 20 to 30 minutes. Soak for a while, relax and let all of your worries be washed away in that tub. Enjoy!


-You could even make your own little mixture of salts that you store in a jar. This way, you can just conveniently go to your jar and everything will already be mixed and ready for you to add it to the running water. Mix baking soda, sea salt and Epsom salt. For different scents and aromas you can add drops of different essential oils like lavender, orange oil, or eucalyptus. After you've mixed your own salt concoction just seal the jar tightly and it'll be ready for you the next time you want to take a bath.

Isn\'t bicarbonate of soda very alkaline? Skin has to be slightly acid to be healthy.
