Detox Bath

I love random wednesdays! I can talk about anything I want and then link up to Shanna's amazing blog Because Shanna Said So.  I've been super busy with work and haven't been able to post like I would like too, but I'm going to try to change that. 

Today I was planning on trying my very first outfit post. However, I have yet to find the perfect place to take pictures. So I'll continue to work on that and hopefully have some outfit posts up soon.

So instead of an outfit post I will share with you, a detox bath that I tried last night.  I found this posted on pinterest and thought might as well give it a try.  So I headed to walmart to pick up some epsom salt.  This can be found in the pharmacy section.  I got a pretty good size bag for 88 cents. You'll also need baking soda if you don't already have that at home.

Now its bathtime! It is recommended that you set aside 40 minutes for soaking in the bath mixture.  I only soaked for 20 minutes during my bath.  So to do this right, you have to run your bath water as hot as you can stand it. Then you add 2 cups of the epsom salt, and 1 cup baking soda.  You can also add lavendar oil to help give you a relaxing feeling.  After you add all your ingredients, swish them around in the bathtub. Then soak for 20-40 minutes.

After I was finished with this bath, I didn't feel too great.  But I had also taken a benadryl shortly before which kicks my butt.  However today I feel great, no aches or pains, and my sinus troubles I was having is much better!
