Detox baths are great for helping you to look and feel healthier. Foot detox is also a great idea to help revive tired feet. Particularly now since summer is officially in full swing, keeping your feet healthy is a must especially if you tend to go out in sandals, flip-flops or even barefoot.
You can head to the spa for a foot detox or simply make one yourself at home. There are really easy recipes out there that contain essential ingredients that will help your feet to look and feel great. One recipe uses:
- 1 cup of Epsom salt – this is a common ingredient found in detox baths
- 1 cup of sea salt
- 2 cups of baking soda
Just mix this together and store in an airtight container. When you are ready to detox your feet, put ¼ cup of the mixture in a foot basin and fill with water as hot as you can stand it. You can also add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to make the detox bath and your feet smell great. Just soak your feet for about half an hour. The salts work with the hot water to draw toxins out of your system and to help your feet feel refreshed.
