Detoxifying, Self-Loving Foot Bath Practice

footbath.png

This self-care treatment can be anywhere and gives you all the benefits of an epsom salt bath even if you don’t have a bathtub or don’t want to bother with the whole body getting wet.

It’s also a wonderful practice for the changing of the seasons we are in as it will boost your immune system and make you feel super cozy! I try to do epsom salt baths or foot soaks at least three times a week.

The best time to do this is right before bed, but you can do it any time you need a little extra care.

PS - if you own a salon or spa - this would be a beautiful way to honor the health of your clients and their feet will feel so soft and fresh! Plus this foot bath will cost way less than the harmful chemicals your salon might currently be using.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2c plain epsom salts: transdermally delivers sulfur and magnesium (majority of people are deficient) and both of these minerals support your body's detoxification

  • 1/2c baking soda: alkalizes, absorbs heavy metals, exfoliates and soothes skin - creates silky water!

  • 2 drops doTERRA Peppermint (highest in the constituent menthol) for cleansing and boosting circulation

  • 5 drops doTERRA Zendocrine Blend - read how it supports detoxification here.

Directions:

  • Scrape dead skin from heels and dry skin brush bottoms and top of feet.

  • Mix ingredients into large bowl/basin and then add warm/hot water…

  • Soak feet for 20 min while you listen to calming music or a meditation.

  • Dry off of your footsies.

  • Bonus: Apply Correct X to the heels and cuticles (this natural healing ointment is incredible)

  • Finish with doTERRA natural body butter and put in cozy socks - preferably ones that go up to your knees for extra cozy affect.

  • Crawl into bed. You’ll get the best night sleep you have in awhile, I promise.
