3 Tips for Some Simple Spring Cleansing

Sweat out your toxins:


 
I like to keep it simple when it comes to detoxing on a regular basis. Once a week, try a hot Epsom, sea salt or Himalayan salt bath. Soak for 20-30 minutes and try to get the water at a temperature where you can consistently sweat for a good 15 minutes. The skin is the largest organ and sweating it out is one of the simplest detox techniques to use. If you really want to deep cleanse, do the bath every day for 30 days and add 5-7 drops of pure essential eucalyptus or peppermint oil. 

Increase your green veggies: 

 
For most people, veggies aren't their favorite food, especially the greens. I invite you to be creative, explore and keep an open mind. When you create a salad, aim for dark leafy greens (green leaf lettuce, butter crunch lettuce, romaine, spinach, kale). The more of it you eat, the more vitamins/minerals you take in and the more cleansing you receive. Aim to eat one salad a day, either as a side item or as a main meal.  Regardless of it being a small quantity, the servings will add up. It will gradually become a natural habit. You are training the mind and the taste buds at the same time.

Try aromatherapy:

 
I like to use pure essential oils to help clean the air in my house. You can use a diffuser or place a few drops in a simmering pot of water.  It will aid in keeping viruses and bacteria at low levels. Try the lavender, rosemary or sage oils. For a more citrus and refreshing scent, use the lemon or orange essential oils. Those are great for also lifting moods and inhaling for an energy boost.
