The ingredients epsom salt, sea salt, baking soda, and ginger are all detoxing herbs. The orange is both cleansing and uplifting. Watch the video for detailed instructions.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

You will need:

Sea salt

Baking soda

Epsom salt

Empty Jar

Orange Peel

Ground Ginger

Orange Essential Oil (I'm using tangerine)

Ginger Essential Oil

(Optional essential oils- cinnamon, clove, and lemon)

Step 2: Chop Orange Peel

Make sure to cut off the white part of the peels. You want only the outside skin. Then with a knife or pizza cutter chop into tiny pieces.

Step 3: Add Epsom Salt

Fill the jar 1/3 with epsom salt

Step 4: Add Orange Peel

Add the chopped orange peel.

Step 5: Add Sea Salt

Fill the jar 1/3 with sea salt. Do not use iodized salt.

Step 6: Lid and Shake

Shake until fully mixed together.

Step 7: Add Baking Soda

Fill the jar 1/3 with baking soda. And shake more.

Step 8: Add Ginger

Add a pinch or 2 of ground ginger. And shake more.

Step 9: Add Essential Oils

Add essential oils to your own liking. Ginger essential oil is very potent so you won't need much. And shake more.

Step 10: Enjoy a Nice Detoxing Bath

Add 1/2 to 1 cup to your bath water. You can also use this as a foot soak, just add 1/4 to 1/2 to foot bath.

<p>Oh, I love DIY's like that. Will try this tomorrow and report.</p>
Omg it looks so easy and I have tons of essential oils and thanks it really helped me think of good sellers!?
<p>Does this remove different toxins than your charcoal bath? If so what toxins and how do these ingredients remove them?</p>
<p>The 2 recipes detox in different ways, both equally effective. Some people may not like the idea of a black bath, or want something that smells better. </p><p>The charcoal bath draws out toxins and absorbs the toxins into itself. </p><p>(http://www.emedicinehealth.com/activated_charcoal/page2_em.htm)</p><p>Ginger helps circulation and blood flow which in turn helps the body to sweat out the toxins, but it does not absorb the toxins. </p><p>(<a rel="nofollow">http://www.pureinsideout.com/ginger-bath.html)</a></p><p>Both recipes have baking soda, sea salt, and epsom salt which are all well know for their detoxing effects in baths. </p>
