I know some of you out there suffer from fungal infections on your feet. I know some of my athletic friends do and they are always asking me what they can do to help treat it. The answer is by making your own herbal anti-fungal foot soak treatment. It is very simple to make and works safely and effectively at treating fungal infections on feet.
Organic Ingredients Needed
The organic and natural ingredients needed to make the treatment are 6 cups of Epsom salt, 2 cups of sea salt, 1 cup of baking soda, 25 drops of lavender oil, 25 drops of tea tree oil, 25 drops of eucalyptus oil, 10 drops of peppermint oil, 10 drops of menthol oil and 2 tablespoon each of dried thyme and rosemary.
All these ingredients should be organic and natural for them to work the best with treating the fungal infection. The reason these ingredients are used is because they contain anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties in them that help kill the bacteria and fungus growing on the feet. You can find all of these ingredients in your local herbal store or organic store.
Creating the Treatment
The way to make the herbal anti-fungal foot soak is by taking the Epsom salt, sea salt, baking soda and essential oils along with the dried herbs and placing them into a large mixing bowl. After, combine the ingredients together until the are evenly mixed. Once the soak is made, you can pour it into a sealed plastic container or jar and store it some place cool until your ready to use it.
Using the Soak
The best way I find to use the homemade herbal anti-fungal foot soak treatment is by filling up the bathtub half way with hot water. Then I like to take about 1 to 2 cups of the foot soak directly into the water and allow it to dissolve in for about 2-minutes. After, I soak my feet in this warm herbal soak for about 30-minutes or longer to really help treat and kill off the fungus and bacteria.
Once I am done soaking my feet, I like to massage them down with some tea tree oil lotion to help soften my feet up. A tea tree oil foot lotion also helps treat the fungal infection. However, you do have to soak your feet nightly in this remedy and use the lotion often to see positive results.
I do hope this foot soak treatment helps some of you out there treat your fungal infections safely and effectively. I know it has worked well for my friends and I. I wish you all the best of luck with getting healthy happy feet again.
