A healing detox bath is one of the easiest healing therapies we can do to facilitate our body’s natural detoxification system. In this modern age, we are exposed to more toxins than ever. Toxins are in the air we breathe, the food that we eat, beauty and household cleaning products, medications, the water we drink and stress.
