Top 10 Types of Foot Baths and Which Health Problems They Can Solve

Baking soda bath for dry skin

A warm soak with baking soda can be the ultimate solution if you want to remove dead skin from the feet. This remedy won’t help everyone though: baking soda can be irritating and can even dry out the skin. Those who have sensitive skin or allergies should avoid this foot spa.

To make the bath add 2-3 tbsp of baking soda to a full foot bath of warm water and soak your feet there for 10-20 minutes. Apply plenty of moisturizer after this procedure.

Contrast baths for swollen feet

The different temperatures of water will work great in encouraging better blood circulation in the feet. Though, make sure the water you use is not too hot.

Take 2 buckets and fill half of the first with hot and half of the second with cold water. Soak your feet in the hot water for 10 minutes, then put them for another 10-12 minutes to the bucket of cold water. Switch back to the hot water and keep your feet there for 5 more minutes.

Aromatic citrus soak to get rid of foot odor

Not only will this bath battle bad smells and sweat, but it’s also a perfect way to soothe aching feet.

Add one lemon, one lime, and one orange (all fully sliced) to a foot bath with warm water. Follow with 4 drops of peppermint oil, 4 drops of tea tree oil, and 3 tbsp of baking soda. Soak your feet in the mixture for about half an hour.

Eucalyptus soak to relieve stress

It won’t be long after this spa inspired foot bath that you’ll find yourself feeling more relaxed and calm.

To make the soak add some soothing Epsom salts of your choice to a container full of warm water and follow with 10-12 drops of eucalyptus oil. Soak your feet for 20-30 minutes.
