LS and detoxification

I had purchased a bag with the name 'Tub Tea" from a local producer.  In it a lot of herbs, seasalt and epsom salt.  It says:" Detoxifies, sooths and heals skin."  And indeed I have experienced it as very pleasant and helpful.

Are there others who have thoughts on detox?  Any helpful hints?

    I hadn't thought about detoxing, other than my thing of avoiding processed foods as much as possible, but I went to my kinesiologist yesterday and she suggested a lavender water spray to soothe sore skin. I haven't tried it yet. I have lavender in the garden, and some dried flowers from last year so will make my own, with a pinch of bicarb and report back.

    She suggested rotating coconut oil, aloe vera gel and calendula cream (weleda nappy barrier cream), for variety so the body doesn't get used to one thing.

    Also to use avocado as a moisturiser, when eatem. wipe finger round the inside of the skin and spread that. That's a new suggestion, but I'm prepared to try anything if it's simple and natural.

    And eat seaweed, it's full of good stuff for the immune system.

    I'll let you know how I get on. It's so hard to remember everything in a busy day.

      I have done that too - avoiding processed foods.  Lavendar is also in this mix, as is calendula.  

      I'm also rotating, knowing that LS likes or needs variety.  Use also Weleda nappy cream.  

      Will try the advocado.  It's a kind of fat as well, isn't it.

    Do you sit in the tub and how much epsom salt do you put in?  I have some Lavendar epsom sitting here and have not used it.  Not sure if hot water, cool water, how much salt to use.
