Ancient medicine has always used natural remedies to treat any type of health problem. Obviously many of us forget about the power of nature and everything that comes with it, including natural remedies that can work wonders for your health.
So today we have a detox foot bath to flush out toxins. The best part is that it is easy to do and you can do it at home.
But first, let’s find out more about the health benefits of each ingredient included in this detox foot bath:
Epsom salt is a mineral-rich distilled water salt. It is commonly used as a beauty and wellness product.
It is a natural remedy for treating joint pain, arthritis, muscle aches, and skin disorders. According to some studies, Epsom salt offers powerful antifungal and antibacterial properties.
Baking soda (baking soda)
Due to its rich content of vitamins and minerals, baking soda has the ability to remove toxins from your body efficiently and quickly.
Also, it is a popular natural remedy for removing foot odor and treating sore feet.
Castor oil is a great source of vitamin E, minerals, and unsaturated fatty acids. This means that it is excellent for pampering your feet.
This oil also offers strong antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is commonly used to treat athlete’s foot.
Consumed internally, water can hydrate your skin, while when used externally (when we soak our feet) water can hydrate the skin and open pores.
It is very important for the proper absorption of the other ingredients included in this detox foot bath.
