Apple Cider Vinegar Foot Bath
When choosing an apple cider vinegar, go with organic options only, i.e. vinegar which contains the ‘mother’ at the bottom of the bottle. This is actually the most beneficial part of the vinegar. Fill one foot basin with warm water- avoid too hot water.
Then, add ½ a cup or a whole cup of the vinegar. Mix everything together and start soaking the feet. Relax and enjoy the soaking and once the water begins to cool down, remove the feet onto a towel. If needed, use a pumice stone to remove dead skin. Then, rinse them with cool water and towel-dry them. Apply a foot cream by massaging it gently into the feet.
This amazing bath can help with a lot of health issues, including the following ones:
- Bee stings
- Sore feet
- Dry skin

- Unpleasant foot odor
- Liver and age spots
- Athlete’s foot
- Cracked skin
