I use only the best organic Ginger root and other ingredients, because quality matters.
Before you jump into your hot ginger bath, brush your skin with a vegetable brush (which can be purchased at any health food store). Brush all parts of the body toward the heart. Skin brushing can be very beneficial because the skin is a primary avenue for detoxification - along with the lungs, kidneys, liver, and colon.
Add one cup of the bath to running warm water in bath. Get in the bath and turn the water temperature to as hot as you can bear it for 30 minutes. Do not remain in the tub for more than 30 minutes. After about 15 to 20 minutes you will find yourself sweating. I recommend rubbing all areas of your body in clockwise circular motions for a count of 20 in each area while soaking. Rub each breast (great way to ward against cancer) your stomach area, etc. You'll find that you will get quite uncomfortably "hot and sweaty" so it helps to have some bottle water handy to help flush the toxins out
How A Ginger Bath Detoxes:
This method really helps literally sweat toxins out of your body. Perspiration will even pour out of your scalp. Because this ginger bath opens pores and eliminates toxins and also helps to eliminate pain, you may experience flu-like symptoms the next day because your body is ridding itself of poisons. It is common to possibly experience a headache and feel almost a slight “hang-over” sensation. If you are feeling really lousy, it is actually a great sign! However, if you really find it unbearable, you can get some relief from these symptoms by taking baths using Epsom salts (1 to 2 cups) and baking soda (1 cup) in a tub of water and soaking for 20 minutes. If you soak more than 20 minutes may cause you to get too exhausted. Repeat this until you start feeling better.
