1. Ginger Detox Bath
Ginger is a root that has endless health properties when you eat or drink it. It is an ingredient which can also be found in many of our products including TeaGuru. Ginger can be used in other ways to help the body, like making a ginger bath. Yeah you heard us right, a ginger bath! You can use ginger in different forms, you can either grate fresh ginger into the bath or just use powdered ginger. As you sweat out toxins, the ginger will leave you feeling energised and cleaner.

2. Baking Soda Detox Bath
Did you know you have an amazing detoxing ingredient stored in your kitchen cupboards? Baking soda makes a great detoxing device. By adding it to your bath you can de-stress yourself whilst having a nice long soak. Baking soda AKA sodium bicarbonate can be added to the bath to neutralise the chlorine that's been added to most city water sources. By adding 2-3 cups of baking soda to your bath the water will be purer and naturally cleansing.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Bath
If you are not familiar with the benefits of apple cider vinegar, it's worthwhile having a look in to. You can benefit from its properties internally and externally. It can help with conditions such as arthritis and gout, as well as anything else caused by inflammation. So if you have experienced an injury whilst working out, the best thing you could do is to run yourself an apple cider vinegar infused bath.
