Since the beginning of time, man has been cleaning and soaking their feet. Sometimes, it's for hygiene, other times it's a way to welcome guests who visit...still other times, it's for relaxation.
Foot soaks actually benefit your overall health in a variety of ways. They allow you to slough off dead skin cells, allowing your feet to breathe easier, and can help ward off foot odor (particularly if you add herbs with anti-bacterial properties, such as lavender!).
Some even say they can help cleanse your entire body of toxins by creating a detox effect that can be enhanced further by adding herbs, oils, etc. There's even a study in Taiwan that suggests foot soaks can help relieve insomnia and fatigue in patients undergoing chemotherapy for gynecological cancers.
With all these benefits, why would you ever not take advantage of them? This little guide shows you how to make a foot soak that you could customize further with a little ingenuity. Enjoy!
