When it comes to all-natural remedies, we’ve covered ways to handle migraines, indigestion, and allergies. If you’re like us and prefer to opt for cleaner ways to heal your body, then you’ll want to add this recipe to your toolbox. Ahead, we’re sharing the benefits of an apple cider vinegar and Epsom salt bath—sore muscles, body odor, and ingrown toenails are just a few reasons to incorporate this combination in your next bath night.
What you need:
Fill the tub halfway with warm water
Add 1 to 2 cups of ACV *if it’s your first time using ACV, start with 1/2 cup
Add a scoop of Epsom salt
Mix ingredients with foot
Soak for 20 minutes
Benefits: According to Healthline, one study found that ACV can be used to treat mild infections caused by common strains of bacteria. If you have dandruff, apple cider vinegar can help balance your scalp’s pH thanks to its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. The Poosh touch: add Epsom salt to relieve achy joints and muscle soreness.
The combination of ACV and Epsom salt can also help treat and soothe painful ingrown toenails and clear up toe fungus. Sexy, right? On the topic of not-so-sexy benefits … the all-natural ingredients help to neutralize bad aromas and work as a natural deodorant.
Set the mood for your next bath night and enjoy the relaxing self-care time while healing your body from the inside out.
