You may be wondering how soaking your feet can benefit the best of your body. Well, the feet have the larger pores than any other place on the body, and the feet have more pores than any other area of the body as well. This means that using a detoxifying foot soak can effectively help you soak away toxins.

The sulfur and magnesium in the Epsom salts, along with the soothing hot water, can reduce inflammation, draw those toxins out and increase magnesium intake of which most of us are deficient, reduce stress and flush away toxins from the body.
