We want those TOXINS O-U-T, out
New moon = detox = toxins OUT
The rhythm of a new moon supports weight loss and detoxification.
The body’s capacity for detoxification is at its highest each month on the day of the new moon.
Want to manifest your Dreams with the New Moon? Join this workshop on Thursday February 23rd
Prepare yourself for the new moon to further help get those toxins out. What will you do on the new moon day/night to assist the detoxing of your cells.
Start the day with water, detox lemonade, herbal tea, green juice drink
Have homemade juices throughout the day or very light meals
Dry Brush before your shower or upon rising
Work out with sweat or an infra-red sauna
Have a detox bath
In the words of Johanna Paungger and Thomas Poppe in their book Moon Time: “The waning moon detoxifies and washes out, sweats out and breathes out, dries, consolidates, prompts to action and the expenditure of energy.” During the waxing moon, conversely, the body is better at taking in than it is at letting go. Whenever you have any choice in the matter – i.e. unless a health crisis means you must start immediately – always schedule your longer detoxes to happen when the moon is waning. You will get much better results.
The skin is responsible for eliminating 1/3 of the body’s waste everyday – that can equal up to one pound!!! A super fast and effective way it to add dry brushing to your shower/bath routine.
Whether you use a natural bristle brush, a dry brushing mitt, a cheap loofah glove (I’ve tried them all and have finally found the VERY BEST from Living Libations which all my clients love as well), give your body a scrub and:
- Loosen the dead cells to allow the toxins a quick and clear exit out of your skin!
- Leave your skin SOFT and GLOWING
- Reduce CELLULITE
- Stimulate your immune system
- Wake up your circulation
- Move your lymph
- And so much more!
Start at your feet and work up to your chest, then work down from your head and neck to your chest. The key is to make it FUN and a part of your day! Then jump in the shower or bath!
When it comes to Dry Brushing, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Living Libations. I use their dry brushes and lymph+ tonic as part of my routine before jumping in the shower or bath. Recently I have started to also dry brush upon rising – it just feels so good! If you are looking for amazing essential oils, let me know as I can order them wholesale for you!!
While dry brushing, pour yourself a hot water bath with one-two cups of Epsom salts (or more) and ½- 2 cups of non-aluminum baking soda.
Soak for 20-40 minutes with lights dimmed, perhaps a candle for added relaxation and soft music to drown out any “mama calling from your kids or husband”
For an added cleansing effect, drink a cup of peppermint tea before the bath to promote the release of toxins or even add it to your bath along with soothing essential oils like lavender or chamomile.
Why Epsom Salts & Baking Soda?
- Safe, natural, non-toxic traditional remedies used to improve well-being
- Believed to cleanse and purify the body
- Relieve joint pain and slow down the aging process
- Epsom salts provide the body with much needed magnesium and sulfates
- Baking soda neutralizes acids (meats, sugar, processed foods, alcohol, medication, etc.) and promotes the elimination of toxins leaving you feeling refreshed and renewed, not to mention your skin will be oh so soft!
Note: If you are TOXIC, and those nasties are trying to escape your mama cells, you might be dizzy after your bath…so get up gently and take some deep cleansing breaths!
FYI on sulfates….they disinfect your blood and flush toxins O-U-T of your cells. They are also necessary for the synthesis of new collagen…you got it…gives you healthier, younger looking MAMA skin!!!
Go get your Epsom Salts!!!
Other detox bath ideas that you can explore….
- Austrian Moor Mud – nature’s most potent healing compounds
- Himalayan Salt
- Organic Seaweed – help delay aging process
- Add ginger or ginger tea to further sweat those toxins out (can add to Epsom/baking soda)
- Add fresh herbs – mint warms you, lavender and chamomile soothe you, explore and find what suits your mood
- Bentonite clay – fast detox method
- Raw Apple Cider Vinegar – super helpful when you need to restore the acid/alkaline balance back to your body

Madeleine Marentette from Grail Springs in Bancroft (great place) has written a book, Grail Springs Holistic Detox for Body, Mind and Spirit, and I love her advice about detoxing with the cycle of the moon.
If you can manage to follow this you may deepen your detox even more, here is what she writes in her book…The rhythm of a new moon supports weight loss and detoxification.
Google the moon cycles and then add the dates into your day timer and see if you can follow her advice. If not, any time you can have a detox bath, jump in!
Full moon=replenishment=minerals in
New moon = detox = toxins OUT
During the full moon the body will more readily absorb minerals and heal. You can work with these natural rhythms of the moon to optimize which results you want.
Tanya, thanks for the tip on dry brushing – love it! You’re talking to a moisturizer, baby oil reliant chick who can already feel the difference in less than a week! Thank you again the knowledge you bestow, it is very empowering.
