Baking soda baths

I absolutely love doing my baking soda baths. They help me relax besides helping my LS skin. I saw someone suggested every other day. Is this something that can be done too often?

We're heading into our Canadian winter season and I just crave warm baths in the winter.

Is a baking soda bath every day going to cause problems for me?

    I wouldn't think so - I used to have salt baths everyday. Then we moved and I have no bath ūüė•. They are so good for you and totally relaxing. One of the better specialist I had (before I moved) prescribed it daily and it worked a treat.¬†

    I'm a Canadian who lives near Algonquin Park, so I get what you're saying. Winter's coming on fast alright. Maybe hot tea with our hot baths......

    I'm waiting for the baking soda answer myself. Thanks for asking.

      I haven't tried baking soda yet, but I'm leaning towards it. I know applying coconut oil is good though.

    I think I would alternate some days with salt,  just to be on the safe side, as anything that is used to often can sometimes cause problems, but that's me.

      Thanks. "anything that is used to often can sometimes cause problems"

      That's been my experience too. I tried a healthy cream once. It worked for a while until it didn't!

      I have done this baking soda routine for more than a year now and with postitive result.  (1/3 cup in bath every other day,  three pinces in a Perin bottle as a rinse after every bathroom visit and then cover with coconut oil) Dilation every other day as well.  I have tried to minimize, but the result is that the LS 'recovers' from suppression.  

      That, plus diet, plus the minimum amount of glob use.

      I don't rinse with clear water after.  Baking soda is a cleanser and PH changer.  And I actually think that the success of using baking soda is because of that.

      Thanks for that info - always happy to get it. Didn't know about the PH with baking soda, although I do know alkaline is better than acid.  A

    How do you clean bath and make sure there are no chemicals left on tub to cause irritation.  I am always afraid that I am not raising the tub well enough.
