At-Home Treatment Footbath
In addition to using our Alkali Salt in a body bath, you can also use it in an alkaline foot bath. Our soles are rightly often referred to as the third kidney, as they have very many sweat glands. The effect of the alkaline foot bath can be assisted by rubbing off the feet and lower legs every 15 minutes with a peeling glove or a washcloth or brushing them off with a brush. For an alkaline foot bath, dissolve 1 scoop of the Susanne Kaufmann Alkali Salt in a foot bath and bathe for at least 30 minutes.
After gently filing your nails into shape, indulge your feet using the foot cream cooling.
