Baking Soda Bath

Here are some baking soda baths that are healing. Baking soda is used in many fancy bath products that you can buy with hefty price tags. My allergy doctor introduced me to baking soda baths to help me detox.

Here are some recipes.

Relaxing
3/4 cup baking soda
18 drops lavender oil
Mix and store in a tight jar.
Use 1/4 cup per bath.

Immunity Booster
3/4 cup baking soda
9 drops lavender oil
9 drops of tea tree oil
Mix and store in a tight jar.
Use 1/4 cup per bath.

Uplifting and Energizing
3/4 cup of baking soda
8 drops of lavender oil
5 drops of peppermint oil
5 drops of sweet orange oil
Mix and store in a jar.
This shouldn't be used if you're going out in the sun or tanning booth. This one is refreshing, mood elevating, and nice for headaches. It also smells great!

Mood Lifter
3/4 cup baking soda
9 drops of lavender oil
9 drops of sweet orange
Mix and store in a jar. The orange can cause photosensitivity so don't use for 24 hours before exposure. This is a great winter scent. I absolute love lavender and orange together. It makes me so happy.

Warming and Releases Toxins
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup borax
1/4 cup epsom salt
1/2 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon powdered ginger
10 drops lavender oil
10 drops tea tree oil
10 drops eucalyptus oil
10 drops peppermint oil
10 drops rosemary oil
Mix and store in a tight jar.
Use about 2 tablespoons per bath.

Baking soda is a product you can get in any grocery store. It's sometimes called soda ash in fancy bath products. It has a alkaline base. Baking soda helps soften your water, and is great for rashes, sunburns and itchy skin. It acts as a mild skin cleanser, and softens your skin. I find this helps me very much when I have an outbreak of shingles. The itching is less and the lavender helps the itching, pain, and helps prevent scarring.

I hope you enjoy some of these recipes. They are basic ones and can be changed to fit your needs. Just have fun with it and experiment. Enjoy! :)
