The Importance of Detoxing your Emotions

Emotional detox isn’t widely spoken about, though it should be! The rollercoaster of emotions we feel as humans are essential in developing empathy, but we can quickly crash when those emotions get out of control. This can severely impact every part of our lives: spiritual, mental, financial, and physical. It’s important to detox your body through essential oils and other natural remedies, but it’s equally necessary to detox your emotions.

Everyone needs to have a de-stress routine! Taking regular emotional detox breaks can help you better handle your emotions. When you chill with my detox bath, you can cleanse your entire system, allowing you to enjoy abundant life. Many members of our Natural Living Family regularly use this bath to find relief from daily stressors.

Detoxing your emotions is easier said than done. To help you in this journey, I’ve put together 11 steps to emotional cleansing. These steps have helped thousands of people find freedom. Be sure to do them in order; I start with the most pressing issue first!

Read This Before You Begin…

Sometimes the word detox can make people squirm. This is an entirely safe process when done correctly, I assure you! Using essential oils for detox bath can rejuvenate your body like nothing else!

A carrier oil helps dilute the essential oils, making them safe for the skin. Using a carrier oil is a must because it helps your body process the essential oils. A carrier oil also allows oils to last longer on the skin, giving you more bang for your buck. If you want to ensure your essential oils are fully dispersed throughout the water, try mixing them with liquid Castille soap instead of carrier oil.

This detox bath is so gentle I use it during my pregnancies. The kid-friendly version comes in handy during times of illness and seasonal allergies. Both variations use the same ingredients but differ in quantities. Also, children soak their hands or feet, not their entire bodies. The ingredients in this recipe help safely pull toxins and stress from your body. No harsh chemicals are needed!

The 5 Ingredients You Need for A Detox Bath

To create your detox bath, you need just five ingredients. You probably have some in your home already! Here’s what you need to get started.

Epsom Salts (plain) or Bath Crystals: Epsom salt contains a hefty dose of magnesium. Magnesium is a great supplement that can open detoxification pathways. Sometimes your body needs a signal that it’s okay to relax, and this bath gets the message across! Studies show that when people have higher magnesium levels, their stress levels are lower (1). Learn the signs of magnesium deficiency here. When purchasing Epsom salts, be sure to get the plain, unscented kind.

Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar: I recommend using an organic brand that has the “mother,” where most of the benefits are! Apple cider vinegar can stop the growth of candida (2), a fungal infection caused by yeast. Don’t worry about the smell. Essential oils mask any vinegar scent!

Mama Z’s Oil Base or Carrier Oil: If you haven’t tried my oil base, you’re in for a treat! Mama Z’s Oil Base is a combination of my favorite fatty oils. I used it during my pregnancies, and I now use it in most of my DIY recipes! If you don’t have my oil base on hand, you can use your favorite carrier oil. Sweet almond, fractionated coconut, and jojoba oil are heavenly in this recipe!

Lemon Essential Oil: This essential oil is high in antioxidants. It’s one of the best essential oils for detox bath! It has a clean, uplifting smell. It’s great for emotional detoxing because this oil helps to relieve anxiety in stressful situations. (3) It’s one of our favorite EOs for detox.

Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender is an essential oil that calms your mind and eradicates stress from the body. This light floral scent pairs wonderfully with lemon to create the ultimate spa experience.

Supplies: To make this recipe, you’ll need a glass jar to mix the ingredients, and if doing the kid-friendly version, a foot bath or bucket.

How Do I Take a Detox Bath?

While this bath is safe, there are a few precautions you need to follow. I recommend doing these steps to achieve maximum results!

The Best Essential Oils for Detox Bath and Emotional Detox
  1. Mix essential oils and carrier oil (or liquid castile soap) before adding to the empty tub.
  2. Pour in Epsom salts or bath crystals.
  3. Fill your bathtub with as warm of water as you can stand.
  4. Slowly pour the apple cider vinegar into the running water.
  5. Soak your whole body for 20-30 minutes.
  6. During the last five minutes, first, sit up, then kneel, and last stand.
* No matter what allergies you may have, there’s a carrier oil that’s right for you. You can use any or a combination of these: Avocado, Fractionated Coconut, Grapeseed, Jojoba, Sweet Almond.

Step One: Mix the Essential Oils and Carrier Oil

Mix the essential oils of choice and carrier oil before adding them to an empty tub. Remember, using a carrier oil isn’t optional!

Step Two: Draw Your Bath

Pour in your Epsom salts or bath crystals. Then, fill your bathtub with as warm of water as you can stand. Doing this will help your body sweat out toxins! Last, slowly pour the apple cider vinegar into the running water. Soak your entire body for 20-30 minutes. During the last 5 minutes, slowly (emphasis on slow!) sit up, kneel, and finally, stand. Exiting the tub slowly ensures you don’t get dizzy.

How to End Your Bathtime Routine

My bathtime routine is pretty extensive, so I consider myself an expert in pampering! Once you finish your relaxing bath, use my coconut oil-based moisturizing oil base. If you’ve experienced emotional detox, this will only boost your results. Add essential oils to your moisturizer to make it even more fabulous with my joyful recipe.

If treating sore muscles with your DIY detox bath, I recommend following up with my DIY Fibromyalgia Massage Oil Blend. This blend of oils can relax muscles even further.

After treating sunburns, remember to replenish your skin with my soothing healing skin serum. The aloe vera has a cooling effect on the skin, providing instant relief.

How to Give a Child a Detox Bath

Children need detox baths too. This bath comes in handy for stomach bugs, allergic reactions, common cold symptoms, and more. Here’s how you adjust this recipe for little ones.

  1. Mix the essential oils into the carrier oil and place them in an empty bucket or foot bath.
  2. Add the Epsom salts and apple cider vinegar.
  3. Fill the bucket with warm water, and have the child soak their hands or feet for 15 minutes.

Try using this essential oil blend in our DIY bath bombs and add some fun relaxation to your detox bath. Follow up your emotional detox bath with this emotional detox inhaler blend for aromatherapy support.
