Baking Soda for Smooth Feet

You may think of many uses of baking soda in cooking and baking but it is found to be very effective in healing lots of ailments and discomforts. One of most prominent healing power of baking soda is treating stinky and smelly feet and removing feet fungus.

Summer just around the corner, it’s time to get your feet into tip top, sandals season shape! Those dry, cracked, calloused feet can no longer hide in the safety of your socked feet! Don’t worry though, you don’t have to make weekly pedicure trips to have smooth, beautiful feet this summer.

Foot soaks are very effective in healing lots of feet problems like tiresome of feet, dry and damaged skin of feet, cracked heels, stinky feet and many others. Diabetic patients and athletes are very often to make use of foot soak treatment for good care and treatment of their feet.

What you will need:

4-5 liters of warm water in a bucket (that you’re feet will fit in)

– 3 tablespoons of baking soda

– Soft scrub sponge / brush / pumice stone

– Moisturizer

Lavender oil (optional)

And that’s all you need!

Pour the baking soda in the bucket of water and stir the water until the baking soda is dissolved. If you want to replicate an at home spa, then we recommend adding a couple drops of lavender oil! The aroma is so relaxing and it will help calm you after a long day at work! Soak your feet in the baking soda water for 15-20 minutes. After you’re finished soaking your feet, use a scrub brush, sponge or pumice stone to thoroughly rub the under side of your feet.

When you’re finished scrubbing, coat your feet in a moisturizer that has a high glycerin content, or simply coat your feet in coconut oil, or vaseline. Put socks on your feet to seal the moisture in. If you do this process before bed, then sleep with these socks on all night! Repeat this process 1-2 times a week leading up to the summer and then reduce to 1-2 times a month throughout the summer!

If you want to make your at home pedicure a bit more intense, use some of the baking soda and water to make a small amount of paste to scrub your feet with before you scrub with a sponge or brush!
