Natural and Thrifty in 365: #35 Homemade Foot Detox

Have you ever heard of a foot detox, or ionic foot bath? A lot of naturopathic professionals now do them to help customers detox the body naturally. But these foot baths can cost as much as $50 to have done.

While I’m not sure how well this homemade foot detox works compared to the professional ones, it is worth looking into and possibly trying. All you need is baking soda, sea salt, epsom salt, water and somewhere to soak your feet.

Check out the home foot detox recipe on An Apple a Day Wisdom. Wouldn’t these make fabulous gifts for the holidays?

  1. Thank you for sharing a post of mine!!! I researched this for quite some time myself last year. I started using them and love them. Whether or not it truly works, I do feel better. AND….my feet have never been more soft :)

  2. its just that, ive read so much on how the foot baths arent doing anything but soaking your feet….but at any rate, doing it cheaply is a good thing.

  3. I used to do the professional ones somewhat regularly and I can’t say enough great things about them. but now I’ve moved to an area of the country where they are not readily available – plus I’m on a stricter budget – this will be great to try!
