Apple cider vinegar is an incredibly healthy ingredient. It possesses numerous health benefits which can promote your overall health and prevent a number of health problems. It’s an effective germicide that can eliminate all the germs and bacteria from your body and thus prevent serious conditions which can jeopardize our entire health.
The best thing you can do for your health is start using ACV once a week and take advantage of all its healing properties. All you need to do is soak your feet in an ACV foot bath and enjoy your relaxing, healing bath. If may sound strange to some, but this detox method is highly beneficial, just try it out and you’ll see for yourself.
The biggest problem about ACV is its strong, for some even unpleasant smell and that’s why many people avoid using it as a remedy. However, if we can stomach its smell and aroma, using ACV will have a tremendous effect on our body. All you need to do is combine ACV and water in equal amounts and soak your feet in the mixture. Let the magic happen and enjoy your bath for about 45 minutes. It’s best if you use warm water for the bath and then use a pumice stone to exfoliate your skin on the feet. The bath will soften the skin and make it easier for you to remove any dead skin cells and calluses.
The Feet Wonder
We’ve read so many articles about the health benefits of ACV that by now we probably know them by heart. So, I guess there’s no point in explaining that ACV is the most important ingredient in this foot bath.
ACV has been used for centuries in the treatment of digestive problems, respiratory issues and as an aid in losing weight. It’s proven to be very beneficial for all of these problems, given that you use it properly and combine it with the right ingredients. But many don’t know that it can actually be used as a foot bath and help you detox your body and prevent a number of health problems.
Our feet are our soft spot and that’s where most of the bacteria are accumulated. From there they can cause all sorts of problems, lead to dry feet, calluses, roughness and even infections. This foot bath will eliminate all the bacteria and germs that have accumulated on your feet and disinfect them, relieving you from the unpleasant smell as well.
Preparing the ACV foot bath
Pour some water in a large pot and heat it up so that it’s pleasant and lukewarm, around 18 degrees. Don’t overheat it as it may counteract the effects of the bath. Pour the water in a large basin where you can soak your feet later. Now add an equal amount of ACV in the water and stir to combine. You can add some essential oils or herbs to improve the smell a bit. Lavender or peppermint would be a nice addition to your bath. Soak your feet in this mixture for about 45 minutes and then pat dry them with a towel.
The bath will disinfect your feet and make them smell nice, in addition to preventing a number of health problems as well. Try it out and use it at least once a week for best effects.
