DIY Detox Foot Bath

  • Author: Dr. Josh Axe
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 bath 1x


This DIY detox foot bath can soothe tired, aching feet and may also draw out impurities through the skin.


  • 2 gallons warm water
  • 1 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 cup Dead Sea salt
  • ½ cup bentonite clay
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • (optional) 10–20 drops of essential oils (my favorites for this recipe are wintergreen and lavender.)


  1. Carefully pour warm water to a basin large enough to comfortably accommodate your feet. Be sure to not use metal bowls, as this may reduce the effectiveness of bentonite clay.
  2. Add Epsom salts, Dead Sea salt, bentonite clay, ACV and your favorite essential oils to the water.
  3. Soak your feet for 20–30 minutes.


After soaking, it is a good time to gently scrub your feet with a pumice stone or with my DIY foot scrub to remove calluses and dry skin buildup. Apply a good moisturizer to finish.
