We demand a lot from our tired feet, therefore proper care and pampering should not be overlooked. This foot soak salt blend is wonderful to rejuvenate not only your feet but also your mood after a long day. Great to use as a preventative to fungal problems or as a natural treatment if you already are bothered by itchy feet.
Long hours spent in sweaty sneakers or shoes or exposure in public showers and swimming pools can put one at a higher risk for fungal infections. Itchy feet can be maddening.
The best way to deal with a fungal infection is to keep the feet dry and well ventilated.
Life being what it is we must wear shoes, therefore getting rid of these tormenting infections can be very difficult.
As a person ages it may become difficult to bend and have the dexterity and strength in the hands to be able to cut one's own toenails. Often the feet are not properly cared for and the result is overgrown, toughened, yellowed toenails. The best way to prepare the feet is to soak them first to soften the nails and cleanse between the toes.
Epsom and sea salts are very therapeutic for pampering sore, itchy feet. Disinfecting, cleansing and detoxifying, salt baths relax, soothe and reduce inflammation. Salt has long been used as a healing agent.
Tea tree oil, Peppermint and Lavender have quite the reputation as a means to ward off foot and nail problems.

These type of foot baths should ideally be done twice a day. Get a basin deep enough that when you add the warm water your ankles will be covered. You'll probably need from 1 - 2 gallons of warm water. Add water first, then 1 heaping TBSP of salt mixture. The addition of the essentials add potency to the salts so not as much is needed than if you just add your own salt.
Keep you feet immersed for about 15 minutes.
It is very important that you dry your feet thoroughly when finished.
For these foot baths as well as after showering, blow dry your feet with a blow dryer, especially in between the toes.
Continue to use this salt water foot bath daily until the fungus is gone.
If desired, follow up with a foot conditioning pumice type tool to scrape the peeling, rough patches and calloused skin.
Avoid nylon socks; wool or cotton is better able to whisk away perspiration. Keep the area between the toes as dry as possible. Periodically let your feet breathe by going barefoot or wearing flip flops.
