Ginger Detox Bath


Ginger Body Scrub

  • Combine roughly chopped ginger and ½ cup Epsom salt in a food processor. Pulse a few times until the ginger is ground and combined. Remove to a small bowl and add lemon juice. Put down a towel and apply scrub before your detox bath.

Ginger Detox Bath

  • Run a bath of hot water and add bath detox recipe. Submerge body for 30 minutes to an hour.


Before you start scrubbing, start filling the bath with hot water. The heat and the ginger will make you sweat—which is pretty much the goal, right? Because sweating is how the body eliminates toxins. Plus, it also helps unclog your pores and relax the muscles.
You can drink ginger tea before bathing to enhance the detox effect.
