Yesterday, we discussed kid friendly body cleanses, so today we would like to share another physical cleanse. Bath time is something that every parent accounts for into their schedule- so tonight try this kid friendly detox bath provided by The Paleo Mama.
STEP ONE: Add the Epsom Salt to a tub of hot water
Epsom salt dosage:
For children under 60 lbs, add ½ cup to a standard bath.
For children 60 lbs to 100 lbs, add 1 cup to a standard bath.
For people 100 lbs and up, add 2 cups or more to a standard bath. (source)
STEP TWO: Add the baking soda (optional)
Adding baking soda to a detox bath helps to neutralize the chemicals in the water, especially chlorine. I have well water, so I don’t need to do this. But, if you unsure about your water, or if you know that it is not filtered, then add in some baking soda.
Baking Soda Dosage:
For children under 60 lbs, add ¼th cup to a standard bath.
For children 60 lbs to 100 lbs, add ½ cup to a standard bath.
For people 100 lbs and up, add 1 cup to a standard bath.
STEP THREE: Add the coconut oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
