The first way you can detoxify through your feet is through an iconic foot bath. If it helps, think of it like electrolysis. An iconic foot bath involves the creation of a powerful chemical reaction that effectively opens the pores. The warm water involved opens the pores in the feet while the salt in the bath works its anti-inflammatory magic. Once the pores are open, the ions in the bath help detoxify the body. If the salt changes colors from a lighter shade to a darker one, you’ll know that the bath is doing its job.
You won’t have to go to a spa or a specialist for this kind of bath. You can actually make the mixture yourself, and try an iconic salt bath right at home. All you’ll need are the following ingredients:
1 cup of sea salt
1 cup of Epsom salts
2 cups of baking soda
That’s it! Once you have all your ingredients, you’ll have to combine them to make the bath. Find a large pot and fill it with water. Bring the water to a boil, then add all of the ingredients. Next, fill a bathtub with warm water and then pour in the salt mixture. Mix it thoroughly into the bathwater, and soak your entire body for 30 minutes. Your magnesium levels will go up, you’ll find reduced irritation on the skin, and you’ll rid your body of toxins. It should make you feel relaxed and totally at ease.
Interested in another method to detoxify through your feet? You can also try using clay in your bath. To pull off this method, you’ll only need these two ingredients:
½ cup of Epsom salts
½ cup of bentonite clay
Once you have these ingredients, just fill up your tub and then add the Epsom salts. If you have them on hand, add some scented oils to make the experience even more relaxing. Once you’re satisfied with the mixture, add the bentonite clay and start to mix it with a wooden spoon. After the clay is mixed in, soak in the tub for 20-30 minutes.
Still looking for another way to detox? Try using this oxygen detox method. It’s also really simple and only requires two ingredients. You’ll need:
1 tablespoon of dry ginger powder
2 cups of hydrogen peroxide
Setting up this bath is even easier. All you have to do is draw a bath, pour in the ingredients and enjoy. Soaking in this mixture for about 30 minutes will do wonders for ridding the body of toxins. The ginger will also make you feel well-rested, calm, and rejuvenated.
You can also try foot pads that are designed to detoxify the feet. They’re pretty inexpensive and can be placed on the soles of your feet before going to bed. Take them off in the morning and check them out. If you notice they’re dark and seem like they’ve been collecting dirt, you know they did their job.
