I don't like to sit in the tub for a long time, but I do take detox baths sometimes.

I haven't followed these exact recipes, but I regularly add epsom salts, baking soda and oils to my bath. I do it because it soothes my skin, not because I believe there's any magic to detoxing.

Why Detox Baths

If the toxins we consume cannot be destroyed by our digestive system, detoxified by the liver, or eliminated by the lymph system, they begin to build up. As they accumulate, they start to affect the body which can result in slow metabolism, low energy, reduced immunity, and can lead to serious chronic diseases.
(NOTE: Baths should be taken on a daily basis during detox and rotated, switching to a different type of bath each day. After detoxing, use whichever bath seems appropriate to meet your current needs.)

EPSOM SALTS AND GINGER:
This bath opens pores and eliminates toxins and also helps to eliminate pain. Stir one cup of epsom salts and 2 tablespoons of ginger in a cup of water first, then add Juniper, Rosemary, Black Pepper and GrapefruitEssential Oils to 1 oz olive oil and add to the bath. Do not remain in the tub for more than 30 minutes.

SALT AND SODA:
Baking soda is a very alkalizing product, so soaking in a bath containing it can help alkalize an overly acidic body system. It is also helpful for reversing the toxicity of radiation absorbed from cell phones, pad devices, computers, microwaves, televisions, x-rays, cancer treatment radiation, and other medical scans, etc. 1 cup of baking soda and 1 to 2 cups of ordinary coarse salt (or epsom salts or sea salt) andFrankincense, Black Cumin, and Lavender essential oils to a tub of water. You can soak for 20 minutes. Also, I would take Chem-X vibropathic by Hanna Kroeger.

EPSOM SALTS, SEA SALT, AND SESAME OIL:
This bath helps with dry skin and stress. Take 1 cup of Epsom salt, 1 cup of sea salt, and 1 cup of sesame oil with Tea Tree, Lavender, and Neroli Essential Oils - and put into a warm to hot tub of water and soak for 20 minutes. Pat yourself dry.

VINEGAR BATH:
This is used when the body is too acidic. This is a quick way of restoring the acid-alkaline balance. 1 cup to 2 quarts of 100% apple cider vinegar to a bathtub of warm water. Soak 40 to 45 minutes. This is excellent for excess uric acid in the body and especially for the joints, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, and gout. I mix up a small batch of 1 oz, olive oil, a few drops of juniper, geranium, black pepper and rosemary essential oils and massage all over and then soak in this bath for best results.

BENTONITE BATH:
A fast detoxification method. Soak 2 to 4 pounds of bentonite clay in a flat container overnight to dissolve it. Then add this to a tub of water. With 2 pounds of bentonite you would soak one hour; with 4 pounds you would soak only about 30 minutes. The more bentonite used, the faster the detoxification. (NOTE: While bentonite is a great adsorber, it is widely used to seal well-casings and ponds. It would very likely seal many septic systems too, costing thousands to repair. Use sparingly or with caution!)
