epsom salt, lavender and baking soda

The UltraBath is a key component of the seven-day UltraSimple program. It provides many powerful benefits in one easy, 20-minute solution every day. (Take a bath just before bed every night.)

Fill your tub with bathwater as hot as you can tolerate. Then add the following:

  • 2 cups of Epsom salts
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 10 drops of lavender oil

For extra-powerful detoxification, wrap yourself in towels immediately after the bath, get into bed under the covers and sweat more for 20 minutes, then remove the towels and go to sleep. You can go directly to sleep without rinsing off after the bath.
