Seaweed Bath

You can go one step further and try a Seaweed Bath! Seaweed, filled with minerals and nutrients, is thought to increase your circulation and decrease the appearance of cellulite.

You can take a seaweed bath any time if you live by a clean shore. Since most of us don’t forage for fresh seaweed daily, lets say you can order some flakes or powdered seaweed at Mountain Rose Herbs or at your favorite seaweed purveyor.

Baby surounded by seaweed Step1:
Take a cup of powdered seaweed and a cup of sea salt (dead sea salts are the best) and soak away in a warm tub for 20-30 mins.

Step2:
Slough your skin well with a loofah while in the bath and rinse off in a shower of warm water afterwards.

If you use “flaked” seaweed: wrap a cup of the flakes into a bundle with cheesecloth and tie it securely so your tub (and body) isn’t plastered with seaweed flakes!
