Epsom Salt is known for being a great detoxifier. It can help with arthritis, sore muscle, or any aches and pains. It also can help with many skin issues that you may have. Epsom salt is also known as magnesium sulfate, and it draws out toxins from the body.
Makes 3 Organics Lavender Orange Liquid Soap keeps your skin extra hydrated for because of its special blend of oils. The coconut oil in the Lavender Orange Liquid Soap allows the essential oils to soak into your skin. It also hydrates your skin so that you aren’t left feeling dry. The full bath recipe is perfect for kids who might not want to sit still while their feet soak!
Baking Soda will help neutralize the chemicals that may be found in your water. If you live somewhere with well water or filtered water you can skip adding baking soda to your detox bath!
Tea Tree Essential Oil is antifungal which can be especially beneficial for those suffering from athlete’s foot. It can also help with dry cuticles and has many other benefits.
Lemon Essential Oil also has an antifungal property along with being antibacterial. Like tea tree essential oil, it can also help with dandruff and cuticle health. It also softens calluses and hydrates your skin!
Lavender Essential Oil is known to be very calming for your mind, body and spirit. It is also known to treat eczema, relieves pain, prevents acne, and relive anxiety.
