ALEX ‘EARTHIE MAMA’ DU TOIS: How to Make a Detox Bath”

Our bodies are subject to many harsh chemicals in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the body care products some of us lather on our skin. If the toxins remain in the body it is possible for our organs to become increasingly toxic leading to all kinds of possible illness. It is possible to recognize when your body might be needing to detox. If you are feeling sluggish, bloated, achy in the joints, having brain fog or just need to relax, a Detox Bath might be just what you need!

These are the ingredients I use in my Detox Bath

(I use about 1/4 cup of each one and add 20-40 drops of Lavender Essential Oil)

Magnesium Flakes ~ Adding Magnesium Flakes to your body, provides magnesium through the skin. Magnesium is necessary for heart function, bone density, muscle cramping, sound sleep, many metabolic reactions in the body, and much more. Many people are deficient in Magnesium and this is a great way to get Magnesium in the body and relax at the same time.

Bentonite Clay ~ Bentonite clays helps in the detoxification process stimulating the lymphatic system to deeply cleanse by pulling toxins out through the skin.

Baking Soda ~ Baking Soda helps to drain the lymphatic system of toxins. Baking Soda not only helps soothe skin rashes, it helps to restore the acid/alkaline balance in the body. Baking Soda has also been known to counter the effects of radiation.

Epsom Salts ~ Epsom Salts is used as a method for detoxification. The magnesium sulfate that is in the salts help to detoxify with medicinal and cleansing actions like if you were soaking in a sulfur hot spring. Epsom Salts helps relax muscles while pulling toxins out.

Essential Oils ~ You can use any of your favorite essential oils. I love to use Lavender Oil. If I don’t have oils I will break off a branch and some flowers and put it straight in the bath. Lavender is great for soothing the skin and helping with scrapes, cuts, bruises and skin irritations. It is also great for relaxing and unwinding after a long day right before bedtime.

* You can also add Apple Cider Vinegar as it balances the body back into an alkaline state. It soothes and softens the skin too. Himalayan Pink Salts helps rid the body of toxins as well as helps with skin problems, joint pains, insect bites, poison oak/ivy irritations and much more.

Relax and Detox while you take a quiet moment for yourself and your overall wellness.

Please feel free to write me with questions or comments!

I love hearing from you!

In gratitude and service,

~ Alex

Grounding is highly necessary for one who is involved in a lot of energy work, one who is working as a medium or intuitive as well as those that are developing their psychic senses. There are several spiritual grounding techniques that can be practiced to balance out the physical energy within your body and the spiritual energy too that connects you with the earth.

Doing constant energy and spiritual work may result to excess energy running through your system and therefore its highly recommended for you to practice the spiritual grounding techniques to avoid certain sensations and feelings such as, feeling dazed, lightheaded, flighty, tired, shaky and disconnected.

Spiritual grounding, often referred to as earthing, helps your body get rid of the excess energy and reconnects you to earth, enabling you to get back into touch with your physical body.

Below are certain spiritual grounding techniques you can use that can sure help you get the balance between your spiritual and physical body. Not all may apply to you as an individual but there is definitely one that resonates with your body;

Spiritual Grounding Techniques

Crystals and Stones

There are specific stones and crystals that are great for the grounding process. You should try carrying stones and crystals such as black kyanite, jasper or the blue kyanite around you especially in your pocket or even create pieces of jewelry you desire with them.

Eating Root Vegetables

Eating is one of the greatest techniques for grounding. The whole encounter of eating reminds our body of its physical nature and the digestion process aids in bringing down energy from our third eye chakras and crown.

Root vegetables are believed to be the greatest food sources for grounding since they grow underneath the earth surface and can therefore help one feel anchored to the earth. You can use different foods you can access and just try them out as a matter of trial and error as different types of foods work for different people. There are those that root veggies help in balancing them since they are high in vibration therefore wouldn’t dull their intuitive senses.

Salt Bath

Salts have been known for their natural healing properties and combining it with the cleansing power of water makes it a powerful tool for grounding. The best types of salts you can use are the; Hawaiian salt, sea salt or the Himalayan salt. Simply add a cup or slightly more to warm water and sit on it for nearly half an hour.

Meditation

Meditation is also a powerful tool for grounding; simply position yourself upright in a very comfy chair with all your feet resting on the floor. The process works by imagining your two feet are like roots that connect you to the ground, breath, relax and let yourself be balanced.

Chocolate

You can use a little bit of chocolate for your grounding process. Chocolate is considered to be quite earthy since it grows naturally in the pods of cacoa tree. You should use the raw chocolate such as the ‘sacred chocolate’ , its quite bitter than the normal chocolate sold in the shops but its more efficient due to its organic and grounding properties.

Do Physical Exercise

Physical exercise is one great technique of grounding that definitely connects yourself to your physical body as well as use the excess energy within you. Yoga can be very efficient too as it centers your body both on a physical and spiritual level; Other physical activities would include; cooking dinner, washing dishes, strolling the doll etc.

Connect with nature

Spiritual grounding techniques that were done by our ancestors to connect themselves to nature;

Take off your shoes and step on the ground barefoot and walk on the ground, the grass, dirt and even the shore. Dig your heels into the ground and just feel the natural sensation. Get out and involve yourself in gardening; touch the soil with your bare hands and just connect naturally to it.
