We have chosen a garlic foot bath over various other types of foot baths. And we have a few lists of reasons for it. Garlic has very superior anti-fungal properties. This makes it a great pick to cleanse the germ-prone feet. With tackling fungi, garlic also aids in making the skin of the feet look smoother, softer and beautiful.

Cures Foot Fungus

Foot Nail Fungus

Where there are long nails, there are chances of foot fungus lurking around in the corners. With the anti-fungal powers of garlic, it really ensures a complete cleanse of the nail fungi. Athletes use this to cure their foot of fungi.

Splinter Removal

Foot Splinter

Garlic acts as an antibiotic and is anti-inflammatory. Due to these two qualities, garlic aids in splinter removal. People have been using half a clove of garlic beneath a band-aid that is to be placed over the splinter to ease the splinter out of the skin effortlessly. Saves the skin from cutting through to remove the splinter.

So, if you happen to have a splinter in your foot, a foot bath is an easy cure or in fact anywhere else with a band-aid.

Once the perfect temperature is achieved, transfer the prepared soak into a water tub and soak your feet in. Let your feet sit in it for 30 minutes. Read a book or apply a face mask if you wish. When the timer goes up, wash your feet with normal water, dry them off and apply a nice moisturizer.
