5 Ingredients To Make The Best Bath Ever

flower-bath-woman

Soaking in warm bath after a long stressful day may be one of the most soothing and easiest things you can do to relax. While the warm water helps to get rid of muscle tension, there are other ingredients you can add to your bath to increase the benefits. Rather than having an ordinary soak, you could be reaping some incredibly therapeutic benefits.

 

People head to the store to buy products to enhance their bathing experience. Little do they know that these products do more harm than good. Most people probably have amazing bath ingredients in their own homes and they fail to use them. While many of the ingredients, which are detailed below, may seem like strange things to add to a bath, we encourage you to try them out! Let us know how they make you feel in the comments below.

 

Raw Honey:

Used as a topical remedy for over 10,000 years, raw honey contains potent antibacterial properties that work to prevent infections and treat acne. Raw honey contains polyphenols and antioxidants that work to slow the signs of aging. Not only does it help moisturize, but it also helps the skin retain moisture. Add one cup of raw honey to a warm bath, mix it in, and soak in it for about 20 minutes.

 

Cinnamon:

If you ever have a cold or feel congested, add cinnamon to your bath. It is a natural decongestant and it contains antiseptic and antiviral properties. Some cultures have used cinnamon to help with spiritual purification because it helps to eliminate toxins from the body. It is also a warming spice, which can help fight away the chill. Add a few cinnamon sticks to your bath and soak for about 20 minutes.

 

Steel Cut Oats:

If you already eat a bowl of steel cut oats for breakfast, then you are well aware of the benefits. While steel cut oats are great to eat, they can also provide relief for rashes, sunburns, skin irritations, or dry skin. The healthy fats help to rid pores of impurities and the inherent proteins help the skin keep its natural moisture barrier. Add one cup of oats to your bath and soak for 15 minutes.

 

Green Tea:

While there are many benefits of drinking green tea, adding it to your bath is a great way to absorb its healing benefits. The anti-aging properties help to restore moisture and skin elasticity. The aroma also helps to clear the mind and relax the body, especially before bed. Find your favorite organic green tea and drop five to ten of those green tea bags in the bath. The bath is ready when the water turns light brown/green. Enjoy this soak for as long as you like.

 

Epsom Salt:

If you have too many things on your mind and need to naturally lower stress levels, take an Epsom salt bath. Magnesium is an essential mineral that works to combat cortisol, the stress hormone. Magnesium is also responsible for reducing inflammation and relaxing sore muscles. So hop in a warm Epsom salt bath and let your stress melt away.

    Q: I am currently on the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN after being done with the FULL BODY DETOX. My question is in regards to the 45 min bath. Can I use regular bath tap water for this bath I read somewhere that the use of chlorine water can lead to chlorine absobtion and that is not good for you.

    Q: I would like to know if you have heard of Dr. Mary Staggs. She is supposedly the original developer of the ionic foot detox bath in Europe. They have an online site and I would like to get your feedback if you are familiar with the company and also could you suggest a good ionic detox foot bath for me since I don?t live in California but would like to have the benefit of a detox foot bath that I could use in the privacy of my home

    Q: Thanks for the great web site! MY question is what's the best way to get sodium. I thought un-refined sea salt was the best, but the salt article says "eat this salt only if you must." The great thing about pure sea salt is that it all or almost all the minerals the body needs! So what's the best way to get all the mineral and to stay in balance? Also is there a way to get Epsom salt that is sodium sulfate not magnesium sulfate? Is it a good idea to bath in the "good" Epsom salt.

    A:

    You're welcome, Beloved!

    The best way to get sodium is via vegetables (i.e. celery).

    Sea salt is great source of sodium, but its a secondary source as it has to be processed from ocean water. Absent the process, it would not be available.

    But it does provide minute amounts of trace elements.

    In re Epsom salt, I haven't been able to find the sodium one.

    I stopped using Epsom salt many years ago.

    You could bath in the good Epsom salt, but sea salt is far better and more natural.

    Q: I purchesed both the FULL BODY DETOX and the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. During week 3 of the Detox, I had a significant herpes breakout on by buttocks. Therefore, I opened the anti-viral kit and started doing the bath with the sea salt and the oil etc, and used it all up with in a week. Maybe I used too much but everything healed up well. Now I am into the first week of the Anti-Viral kit and on day 3 a small breakout started, but I am out of the Oil and roll on. Do you have a suggestion of something else I can put into the bath water besides the sea salt? I have some tea tree oil. I tried to purchase some Melissa oil, but could not find it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    A:

    Use tea tree oil, lavender oil, etc. in your bath water. Add hydrogen peroxide (1 cup) as well. You can oil down with OZ OIL after the bath!

    Q: I am doing the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and I wanted to know if one can use Epsom salt instead of sea salt in the bath? Also I wanted to know if the roll-on could be used even without a breakout?

    WE DON'T RECOMMEND EPSOM SALT THOUGH IT IS YOUR CHOICE TO USE IT. THE ROLL-ON CAN BE USED WHENEVER YOU DESIRE TO USE IT.

    Q: Hi Dherbs.com, how are you? About two years ago my grandmother purchased an ozone machine and I am wondering if you could answer a question I have about it: How long does the water remain "ozonated" after turning the machine off? Also, what is the most powerful way to reap it's benefits: drinking "ozonated" pure water, taking a bath in it, soaking your feet, directly into your ears, etc. Water remains ozonated for about 10-15 minutes and dissolves instantly once machine is off.

    A:

    Best ways to consume ozone is drinking it in water and bathing in it. All ways help though! I do them all!

    Q:

    A: We would recommend giving her the Lung Extract, Mucus Formula and Chest Salve. These formula's all have a different approach in addressing asthma, they all help recondition the health of the lungs. We suggest giving her only one capsule a day from the Mucus Formula. The Chest Salve is a product that we usually only include in our Respiratory Cleanse. Because it helps improve the health of the lungs, we would sell it separately. You can also incorporate the Respiratory Aid Extract into her regimen. Please take time to read the following article: Respiratory Health -http://dherbs.com/articles/respiratory-health-67.html Product Links: Lung Extract - https://www.dherbs.com/store/lung-extract-p-88.html Mucus Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/mucus-Formula-formula-p-50.html Respiratory Aid - https://www.dherbs.com/store/respiratory-aid-p-530.html

    Q: This is my 3rd day on the cleanse. Last night I woke up around 2:00 am and I couldn't rest because I was having cramping in my thighs and buttock area. It was uncomfortable. I got up and stretched, walked, took a epsom salt bath. Finally after 3 hours I was able to rest. When I went to work when I am actively moving around I am fine. But, when I sit for any period of time my leg and buttock cramp. What suggestions might you have? I am pleased with the cleanse, but I would like to remedy this uncomfortable feeling. I have increased my H2O and potassium through eating more than 1 banana. HELP!!!!

    A:

    Sounds like a circulation problem! Start getting up to move around or stretch every 15-30 minutes! be religious in doing this!

    Sounds like you also need more potassium too. One banana isn't going to get the job done. You need to eat at least 5 bananas for minimum potassium. Otherwise, start taking 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water (with a pinch of sea salt added to it) for minimum potassium.

    We would also recommend that you get a massage, preferably therapeutic deep tissue massage.

    Q: My two year-old son is not circumcised and his foreskin is not pulling back is there anything I can do to get his skin to stretch without getting him circumcised because I really don't want to do that. And are there any bath remedies to keeping it clean, right now I give him sea salt baths and thinking about using hydrogen peroxide. Also, It keeps getting red and swollen I gave him antibiotics because it hurts when he urinates. If you could, could you possibly recommend something I could get from a health food store I can't afford to cleanse his body right now.

    A:

    Don't act too fast; sometimes it takes a while before the skin begins to become elastic. The child is only 2. You can clean his foreskin with warm water, sea salt, and tea tree oil (5-8 drops in the bowl of water or bath water) and you can add 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide if you like. If the skin is red and swollen it's inflamed. Start applying Dherbs.Com HEALING SKIN OIL and this should facilitate healing. Antibiotics are harming the child. He doesn't need antibiotics! Please read our article on "DANGERS OF ANTI-BIOTICS". He'll be alright!

    Q: I have a question reguarding the anti-viral cleanse. Do we need to use 1-2 boxes of sea salt for each bath? Please help me to understand.

    A:

    The sea salt soaks plays another major role in detoxing your body. We suggest using 20-30 ounces of sea salt in each bath. Depending on the size of the sea salt you purchase you don't have to use all of it for just one use.

    Q: I have been drinking nettles tea as well as parsley juice and a tea made of marshmallow, gravel and hydrangea roots to control my potassium levels. I have noticed that my potassium numbers are less controllable now that I do dialysis once or twice a week. I know they give me a “K-bath" and I suspect that it keeps my potassium higher to discourage me from eating fruits and veggies and to make me feel jittery enough to keep going back. Actually the doctor told me not to juice or eat fruits at all. I will be ordering your FULL BODY DETOX this week, However, I want your input on how to control my potassium.

    A:

    You control your potassium levels by not worrying about it - eating how God intended you to eat. Beloved, just eat NATURAL food (fruits, vegetables, seed, and nuts) and you'll be all right. P.S. - apples and bananas are good sources of potassium!

    Q: I would like to know if what I'm doing is okay. This is way before we found dherbs site and the products on the internet. We read on the internet that drinking a teaspoon of natural black sea salt or any sea salt in 32oz warm water every morning is good for bowel movement. We have been doing it for awhile now. Is it too much to take it with your products? I lost some weight after my FULL BODY DETOX but not too much on my stomach. What do you recommend l should use to get rid of the tummy area? I bought FIBROID BUSTER TEA I am I drinking it because l feel there is Fibroids down there. Should l also continue taking my BUNNY RABBIT formula with Fibroid tea? In my last email l mentioned my husband had mild stroke. Now he's having spasms all over his body especially when he's sleeping at night. Why is he having it and what else can he use for that? We are using all these wonderful products on the inside and still have un-even skin. Is it okay to use AMBI products for more youthful skin then detox every four months? If not, when are we going to see your skin products on the market?

    A:

    We don't recommend the drinking of sea salt. For tummy reduction: exercise (perform abs, sit ups) and take BOWEL MOVER and WEIGHT RELEASE FORMULA. You can take your herbs and tea together. No big deal! Spasms? Clearly the â€HEALING CRISIS†(read the article by this same title). The skin will improve in time. Don't focus on it!

    Q: Good morning, I have used several products in the last two months. They include the Full Body Detox, Detox bath drops, Aura cleansing, Mucus buster and the Acid buster. I battle MS and I received the results of the MRI, and it shows that my ventriculers went from 8-9mm to 1.2 cm.( I was told it is atrophy) I believe I will be healed, but I am at a lost of what to do next. I researched it and found that exerising will be good, and eating veggies and fruit (having no alcohol). I am continuing on the Mucus and Acid buster. Do you know what I should do next? By the way my cholesterol went DOWN to 159 from 224 at times 242.

    A:

    Keep doing everything you're doing. Take 3 capsules of Brain Tuner formula 2-3 times per day. Drink 1-2 cups of Brain Tuner per day as well. Also, do not worry! Think positive as you consume the herbs daily and eat a mostly vegan/raw foods diet.
