|The soak didn't work for me, but your mileage may vary|
Following the directions I received, I put Epsom salt, baking soda, sea salt, and a few drops of lemongrass essential oil in a large container, then added water as hot as I could stand. After mixing everything together the water was slightly cloudy from the additives. I put my feet in. At the end of 20 minutes I took them out and patted them with a towel to dry.
The detoxification process is supposed to be proven by the discolored water in the bath at the end of the treatment. My foot soak was very relaxing, but when I was done the water was still the same slightly cloudy color.
However, my experiment wasn't a complete waste of time. After the nice soak I gave myself a mini-pedicure, using a loofah to remove the dead skin and giving the cuticles some much-needed attention. As an added bonus, all afternoon a pleasant smell of lemongrass followed me around.
