Feet get sweaty and smelly in summer, and nobody likes that. This creates perfect environment for fungi and bacteria. We suggest that you try this simple foot soak. All you need is organic apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar is a versatile gift of nature. It has strong antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal effect. You can use it for almost anything, ranging from allergies and body odor to dandruff and Candida.
Here’s what Doctor NDTV says:
“Though it has a distinct aroma that can be intolerable for certain people, its health benefits by submerging your feet in it, exceed this disadvantage by a lot. We know that our feet have a lot of germs in it and suffer from a lack of oxygen as they are covered all day by our shoes or socks.
This can be very damaging for our feet as it can lead us to have dry feet, asperities, calluses and other fungal infections. The use of apple cider vinegar can kill the fungi and microbes responsible for the bad odor in our feet.”
Take care of your feet
Combine two parts of water and one part of vinegar. Soak your feet in the solution for 5 minutes. You can always add a few drops of thyme essential oil or baking soda. This will help you neutralize bad odors.
“In addition to soaking, lifestyle choices are important to consider when treating foot odor. For example, try wearing shoes made of leather or canvas. These allow your feet to breathe, unlike shoes made from plastic materials. Also, wear breathable cotton or wool socks. When you’re at home, go barefoot,” reads HealthLine’s article.
Use the same amount of water and apple cider vinegar. Enjoy 15-minute foot soaks every day.
Warts and calluses
Vinegar is the right solution for those dealing with warts and calluses. Soak your feet in hot water for 5 minutes. Then, put them in a container filled with apple cider vinegar for 15 minutes.
Soak your feet in apple cider vinegar for 45 minutes. This will help you exfoliate your skin and soften any dry areas. Scrub your feet using pumice stone and use your regular moisturizer.
Combine equal amounts of apple cider vinegar and water. Soak your feet in the liquid for 10 minutes every day for 10 days.
Tired and sore feet
Add a cup of apple cider vinegar, Epson salt and sea salt each to a container filled with hot water. Soak your feet in to relieve the pain.
Hopefully, you like any of these suggestions. Heal your body naturally!
