Pink Himalayan Salt makes a great choice for a foot soak because it’s detoxifying. In the toxic, polluted world we currently live in, regular, gentle detoxification is a must for many of us!

DIY Pink Himalayan Salt Foot Soak

Pink Himalayan salt is an antiseptic and can draw out toxins and bacteria from your feet, which can help with reducing foot fungus and sores. It also helps support skin health and overall body detoxification.

Use a high-quality salt like Wildly Organic Pink Himalayan Salt, which is pure unrefined “raw” salt that doesn’t contain any anti-caking agents or additives. It’s sourced from the Himalayan Mountains of northern Pakistan.

You’ll also absorb some of the trace minerals found in pink Himalayan sea salt when you use it for a foot soak. These minerals include potassium, iodine, calcium, magnesium, and much more! The absorption rate will be better if you pair it with some Epsom salts (also called magnesium chloride).

Salt is also a humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air into your skin for a natural moisturizing treatment. A Himalayan salt foot soak would be great for the winter months when the air is usually drier, or for getting your feet ready for flip flop season!

Finally, a pink Himalayan salt foot soak helps to relax your muscles (doesn’t that sound wonderful after being on your feet all day?) and gives your feet a deep cleanse. 

If you want the added benefits of aromatherapy for your foot soak, just add some essential oils to your pink Himalayan salt! You’ll want to add a few drops to the salt and stir it up before adding the salt to your water, otherwise, the essential oils might end up floating on the surface of the water in more concentrated amounts than you should have when using essential oils on your skin. 

Some of my favorite essential oils for relaxing and detoxifying include lavender, lemongrass, grapefruit, and orange, but use whichever essential oils you’d like! If you have skin sores or athlete’s foot, try using antimicrobial essential oils such as eucalyptus, tea tree, or cinnamon.
