At kaia naturals we are obsessed with the Scandinavian approach to health. One of the staples of health and wellness in Scandinavia is taking a sauna multiple times a week. When taking a sauna, your body works up a sweat, releasing toxins and impurities from your system. We developed our detox hot baths to bring the detoxing benefits of a sauna to everyone and making it the easiest way to detox! The heat from the bath opens your pores and works your body into a sweat, drawing out toxins. Using Epsom salts, charcoal, turmeric, and seaweed, we have heightened your detoxing experience.
Get to know our bath collection:
Charcoal has been scientifically proven to bind to toxins and chemicals and pull them out of the body. If you need a really deep detox, this bath is the one for you.
In Ayurveda, the ancient Indian holistic healing system, turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. This bath is great after a hard workout, a long day, or with a glass of wine.
Mustard is a classic remedy in the UK to help fight cold and flu symptoms. Mustard seed helps increase circulation in the body, allowing the body to decongest.
Our seaweed hot bath mimics the effects of a luxurious seaweed wrap that you get at the spa. Loaded with skin nourishing minerals and antioxidants, seaweed revives dry, tired skin. You will also soak in these antioxidants and minerals through the skin, which will benefit you internally as much as externally.
While the holidays are a time for indulgence, there are a few things we can do to make this season a little less sinful. Try swapping a traditional dish, for something a little more detox-friendly. Here we have a cauliflower mash recipe, a perfect swap for mashed potatoes!
Cauliflower contains glucosinolates, which are sulfur-containing compounds. Glucosinolates help the body detox by supporting your liver and phase 2 detoxification.
What You Need
- 2 ½ cauliflower, whole head, separated into florets
- 2 ½ garlic, whole bulb
- 2 ½ teaspoon olive oil
- 5 teaspoons thyme fresh chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped chive
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Slice ¼” from the head of garlic and drizzle olive oil over the exposed cloves. Wrap garlic in aluminum foil and roast for 40-50 minutes, until soft. Remove from oven and cool until you can handle it.
- Steam the cauliflower until very tender about 10 minutes
- Transfer cauliflower to a food processor. Pulse the cauliflower mixture until there are no lumps and it’s smooth like mashed potatoes. This may take a few minutes.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve, and watch everyone rave over this recipe!

Tis the season for giving! This year, try something new and give the gift of a DETOX to the ones you love… like a natural deodorant gift! Sure, shiny, glittery presents are great, but when was the last time you gave someone a gift that actually made a lasting impact on their life and overall health? This year, each team member at kaia naturals chose one person on their holiday gift list to give the takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant.
Here’s why natural deodorant makes a great holiday gift:
Jacqueline, Customer Service Coordinator
“As the newest member to the kaia naturals team, I have not yet made the switch to natural deodorant. I decided to give the takesumi detox® to my best friend so we can experience the detox together! One charcoal underarm detox kit for myself, and one for my BFF. It’ll be all that we need to start our switch!”
Marissa, Operations Manager
“I am giving the takesumi detox® natural charcoal deodorant to my mom this year. As a breast cancer survivor, I want her to do everything she can to mitigate her chances of getting cancer again. Although there is no definite evidence that aluminum in antiperspirants causes cancer, it is highly suspect that it might. I don’t want her taking any chances.”
Aloisa, Digital Marketing Coordinator
“My brother and I both use natural deodorant. I use the takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant in juicy bamboo and he uses a different brand. He complains that after a sweaty basketball run, he tends to really stink. I’m convinced that he’ll love our charcoal deo since charcoal is proven to help control odor.”
Yvonne, PR Manager
“My pilates instructor is an avid green beauty user and loves all natural products. She has experienced rashes from a few other natural deodorants. But since the takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant doesn’t have any baking soda in the formula, it is less likely for her to rash.”
Michelle, PR Intern
“I’m giving this natural deodorant gift to my sister because she already loves it!! So I might as well replenish her stock. I’ll drop in the deodorant booster bar into her stocking as an added bonus. She’s going to love how squeaky clean her underarms will feel + she’ll have an added layer of odor-control for the day.”
No matter who is on your list this year, we bet they could benefit from the gift of a natural detox with kaia naturals’ the takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant. Make sure you explain its health benefits before you offended them for gifting them a deodorant. Just say. “Don’t worry, you don’t smell. I simply care for your well-being.” 😉
