As summer fades and the nights get cooler, it is the perfect time for baths, and adding a few simple ingredients to a hot bath can enhance the relaxation experience and assist your body to cleanse itself of toxins.

You may like to start your bath ritual by giving your body a dry skin brush. Fill your bath with water as hot as you can stand, light some candles and put on some relaxation music - this may help keep you relaxed, and distracted from any discomfort as your body heats up and starts sweating.

Mix into the bath water the following:

1 cup of Epsom salts
3/4 cup of baking soda
10 drops lavender essential oil and/or a handful of chamomile flowers

If you really want to heat things up you can add a quarter cup of ground ginger.

Soak for at least twenty minutes if you can. You may feel exhausted when you get out and head straight to bed. But if you want to fully cleanse, give yourself a full-body scrub immediately after your bath when your skin is soft and ripe for scrubbing, and wash off in a lukewarm shower.

If you have a favourite bath time ritual please share it with our readers.
