Detox bath against a cold

A detox bath does wonders to your body. It cleans out all the toxins and chemicals out of your body. Although it is recommended to have one once a week, the main usage I make of it is when my kids or myself catch a cold. The faster you take a detox bath, the higher the probabilities to immediately say good bye to your cold! And it is so easy to do:

What you´ll need:

  • Epsom salt
  • Baking Soda
  • Eucalyptus essential oil (optional)
  • minimum 20 minutes of your time

What to do:

  1. Fill your bathtub with comfortably hot water.
  2. Add Epsom salt:
    • 1/2 cup for children up to 60 lbs/ 27 kg,
    • 1 cup for children from 60 to 100 lbs / 27- 45 kg
    • 2 cups for adults and children above 45 kg
  3. Add baking soda (1 teaspoon for children, 2 for adults)
  4. Add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to help clearing out your nose.
  5. Drink a glass of water before entering the bath to avoid dehydration.
  6. Soak during 20 minutes minimum, 10 minutes minimum for kids. Make sure your entire body is fully under water.
  7. Be ready to sweat as you eliminate all the toxins out of your body!


This detox cold bath truly works wonders. I was always able to completely cut off or significantly shorten our colds.
