Treat your Cold or Flu with a Relaxing Detox Bath

Relaxing your body and giving yourself time to rest is essential if you want to treat the flu or a common cold properly. This begins with taking a nice warm relaxing detox bath. Not only is good for the symptoms of both the cold and flu but also great for sore and tired muscles, fatigue, headaches.

Here are some options for taking a bath when you are ill.

Include Healing Bath Salts

The first way to really benefit from your bath is to add some healing ingredients that detox your body and also help with some of your symptoms of the cold or flu.

To start with, you might do better with a lukewarm bath instead of one that is piping hot, especially if you are already dealing with a fever from your illness.

You can make your own bath salts to add to the bath, using Epsom salt, which provides more magnesium to your body, along with some eucalyptus essential oil to work as a decongestant.

Other oils can also be used as long as you find the scent relaxing.

Try Homemade Bath Bombs

Another DIY product you can make for the bath when you are trying to deal with illness is with bath bombs. These are beautiful, scented and soothing for your body at the same time.

Bath bombs are made with citric acid, corn starch, and baking soda. When you want to use them for healing your body, you should also add in some other natural ingredients, including Epsom salts, coconut oil, witch hazel, and essential oils like peppermint and eucalyptus.

Take a Healing Detox Bath

Bath salts and bath bombs are not the only way you can have a relaxing bath that also detoxes your body of toxins. This detox bath solution is actually great at preventing illnesses, not just treating a cold or flu you already have. Try to make a habit of taking a nice detox bath at least once a week.

For this bath, you once again want to start with Epsom salts in the bath. Other ingredients to add include baking soda, fresh ginger root, and a little sea salt.

You can mix these together and put them in a container, then add to your bath after you start the water.

      I agree – prevention is definately the way to go 🙂 I have a whole routine that I do on Sunday evenings to prepare for the new week which includes dry brushing, face masks, etc etc and an awesomely relaxing detox bath. Definately helps as I haven’t had the flu for over 4 years now :-). Happy I could help. Thank you

    I try to take Epsom salt baths periodically – they are such a great detox product. This has to really hit the spot when you are sick. Great information!
