It's fine time to light some candles, let go of your worries, and soak all of your anxieties away.

Detox baths help strengthen immune systems, boost wellness, and regulate the body's processes. It can replace your monthly spa visit in these social distancing times. As busy babes, we don't always have time for a bath, but we ain't got nothing but time now. More than ever, it is crucial to set aside time for yourself whether you're still going to an active workplace, working from home, or homeschooling your kids. Detox baths can be a trouble-free gateway to relaxation.

For all of these detox baths, remember to drink lots of fluids before enjoying your soak. These baths are flushing out all of the toxins in your body, so they can leave you dehydrated if you aren't up on your fluid intake.
