Fresh Greens Tea Bath Soak

It’s widely known that consuming fresh leafy greens is a great way to detoxify the body. Naturally occurring beta-carotene, iron and vitamins C and K found in greens relieve issues ranging from digestive problems to inflamed organs, and also encourage the production of collagen—preventing skin damage and fending off wrinkles. These same superfoods can also help your system from the outside. Bathing in a “tea” of leafy greens helps open sweat glands to release a range of toxins—from artificial additives or flavorings in food to unwanted bacteria. This blend of kale and leafy greens—chopped, dried and stuffed into muslin tea bags—is the perfect addition to a warm bath for a comprehensive cleanse.

Super easy

Fresh Greens Tea Bath Soak

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Recipe

  • 1 bunch each mustard greens and kale, cleaned and chopped (is stems are included, chop finely)
  • At least 5 small cotton drawstring bags (such as those used for herbs, spices or tea)
  • 1 teaspoons Epsom salts or baking soda (optional)

Fresh Greens Tea Bath Soak Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250°. Spread the chopped greens in a single layer in a large roasting pan. Bake for about an hour—or until the greens are thoroughly dried—then remove from the oven.
  2. Once cool, spoon the dried mixture into at least 5 of the mesh bags and tie tightly.
  3. Add all of the bags to a warm bath and soak your body for at least 20 minutes. Add the salts to the bath to help with sore muscles or symptoms of the flu, or add the baking soda for a stronger detox. Discard the bags after use unless they’re reusable.
