Within reason and limit, I try to do natural things that are naturally good for my body. When I can find something really good for myself that I can do inexpensively from home, I get so excited. This homemade foot detox bath is one of them. The ions in the salt work as magnets to draw toxins through the skin of your feet out of your body into the foot soak water.
Here is what you do:
1 Cup Sea Salt
1 Cup Epsom Salt
2 Cups Baking Soda
You mix all the dry ingredients together and store in an airtight container. When you are ready to use, measure out 1/4 cup of mixture and add to hot water. The water should be as hot as you can comfortably stand. Leave your feet soaking for 30 minutes. Periodically keep adding hot water to the bath.
After the thirty minutes are up, dry feet then wash with warm soapy water, dry again then brush the bottoms of feet with a natural fiber foot brush. Only use 100% aloe vera after you are finished. Lotions with additives will leech impurities back into your system after a foot detox.
This detox should be done daily for one week. Then twice a week for 30 days. Then once a week for regular maintainance.
Do you know of any natural cleanses or soaks that are good for your health?
