Bentonite Clay Detox Bath - Relax and detoxify your body with this easy detox bath DIY using bentonite clay and essential oils. | via scoutandwiles.com

I’m about to start the second week of the school year, so I’m engaging in all the self-care. The beginning of the school year brings a lot of extra stress, and I’m using my evenings and weekends to rest and recover.

One of my favorite ways to relax is with a bath. I take three baths a week, on average. Beyond the warm water, candles, and relaxing scents, I love that I’m kind of stuck for a little while. It’s hard to multitask in a bath.

I love a good bubble bath, but detox baths have also become a part of my routine.

What is a detox bath?

Detox baths include ingredients to draw toxins out of your body. Their benefits include reducing stress and improving sleep.

When taking a detox bath, you should set aside 40 minutes. In the first 20 minutes, the bath ingredients draw toxins out of your body. During the second 20 minutes, your body has time to restore and take in beneficial minerals.

You may feel very tired after taking a detox bath, so it’s a good idea to do this right before bed!



The Ingredients

  • Bentonite Clay – According to Mountain Rose Herbs, bentonite clay “comes from naturally occurring volcanic ash”. It makes toxins more soluble and helps with mineral deficiencies. This is my favorite brand. You can buy it hereBentonite Clay Detox Bath - Relax and detoxify your body with this easy detox bath DIY using bentonite clay and essential oils. | via scoutandwiles.com
  • Essential Oils – The essential oils are totally optional, but I love a bath that smells good, and bentonite clay is unscented. Right now, I’m really into blending rosemary and lavender essential oils. Rosemary is good for relieving stress and anxiety, among other things. Lavender has a distinctly calming effect and helps with sleep. I like to put 5 of each in my detox baths. Eucalyptus and peppermint are also really nice.

Bentonite Clay Detox Bath

Ingredients
  • 1-2 cups bentonite clay
  • non-metal bowl filled with water
  • 10 drops essential oils
  • bathtub filled with water that is a comfortable temperature for you
Instructions

Begin filling the bathtub. Drop the essential oils into the water flowing from the faucet.

As the bathtub fills, stir the bentonite clay into the bowl of water. The clay will clump up, so use a wooden or plastic spoon or whisk to break it up. Pour the clay and water mixture into the bathtub under the running water from the faucet.

Enjoy your bath for 40 minutes.
