A detox bath is considered a natural way to help remove toxins from the body. During a detox bath, ingredients like Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate), ginger, and essential oils are dissolved into warm water in the bathtub. You can soak for 12 minutes to an hour at a time
Although research on foot detoxes is limited, there is some evidence to suggest that the practice isn't effective. Researchers in a 2012 study took an in-depth look at the IonCleanse foot bath and found that the foot detox did nothing to reduce toxin levels in the body.
