How it works
Add 2 cups Epsom Salt, 1 cup of baking powder and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar to a regular sized tub of water as hot as you can tolerate. Use more as needed if your tub is oversized. Stay in the bath until the water has cooled which will be about 20 minutes. Towel dry and don’t shower, go to sleep, and wake up feeling like you have had a massage. Shower in the morning as usual.
Epsom salts is loaded with magnesium, the body needs magnesium to keep all the muscles and ligaments and tendons working properly.
Apple Cider Vinegar draws out excess uric acid out of the body & cleanses the body.
Baking Soda draws out toxins and lactic acid from the body.
This bath is a great overall detoxifier and for muscle aches and pains brought on by physical exertion. It will help with sore muscles and joint problems, arthritis, gout, bursitis, or tendonitis. Perfect for the weekend warrior or anyone who just overdid it at the gym.
