In my travels around the Internet, I have found some totally awesome blogs with very interesting tutorials on how to make just about anything! I love it when those totally awesome bloggers are willing to share their information with me so I can pass it on to you!
April Patel is one such blogger. On her blog, An Apple A Day Wisdom, she posted about homemade foot detox that caught my attention. I am reposting it here with her permission! The photos are mine, but if you'd like to see April's photos, just click on the link above and check them out. She does a nice job of packaging hers for gifts!
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.
This detox should be done daily for one week. Then twice a week for 30 days. Then once a week for regular maintenance.
HB (HoneyBunny) and I have used foot pads for detoxing and even sold them on eBay for a while, but it got expensive and he had some side effects that he didn't care for. So, when I saw April's recipe, I decided I needed to give it a try! After all, it couldn't be easier to mix up, it only takes 30 minutes of soaking and it is definitely cheaper than what we used before!
I am not a medical expert and make no claims that this will perform any magic on your body, but I did mix up a batch for us to test drive and expect it to work just fine to get the nasty toxins out of our bodies.
