Magnesium Foot Scrub and Detox Soak

Eastern traditions claim that toxins are effectively eliminated through the feet. Regular foot baths can aid system detox, address toenail infections and help you relax without a deep soaking tub in the house. Convenient, time saving, healthy and blissful!

I like to make a simple scrub of epsom salt (for magnesium supplementation), olive oil and 4 to 5 drops of CW Function Detoxification Blend with Turmeric, Black Pepper, Bergamot, Frankincense and Lemongrass. Epsom salt exfoliates and boosts magnesium intake during the epsom salt foot soak to follow. Function Detox Blend gets the blood circulating and eases inflammation.

Exfoliating before a shower is the most convenient and tidy time, the easiest way to rinse off your feet. Place a hand towel on the shower floor to avoid slipping!


Regular foot soaks (or bath soaks, depending on time and situation) with epsom salts to boost magnesium and accelerate detox along with your favorite detoxifying essential oils will allow your body to sweat out waste products while you relax. Adding essential oils will broaden the scope of detox by working on many levels, as physical toxins are removed; negative thoughts and emotions are also released during this time.
