One of my favorite things to do….Foot Baths!

I started doing foot baths when I was about 4 years old and I’ve never stopped since!

 

These are some of the times to treat yourself to a relaxing foot bath:

  • When your feet are sore
  • When you’re stressed
  • When you’re cold
  • When you’re rundown
  • When you’re sick
  • When you just want to do something relaxing!

For a foot bath you can either just fill your bath tub up with enough water to submerge your feet OR you can use an actual foot bath (you can find foot baths at Target, Walgreens, etc.).

Some of my usual mixtures to include in the very warm water:

  • For relaxation: a few drops of lavender oil & 1- 2 tablespoons of sea salt
  • For a cold: a few drops of eucalyptus oil &  mustard seed powder (detoxifying)
  • For tired feet: 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and/or a few drops of lemon juice & 1-2 tablespoons of epsom salt

**You can always simply use warm water and still being doing something healthy and relaxing for yourself.

Try a foot bath today or at least, this week!

  1. Exfoliate Dry Skin and Calluses
    Did you know the skin at the sole of the foot is denser than any other skin on the human body? Use this treatment to soften and remove excess dry skin. Mix two cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Use the mixture to gently scrub away dry skin patches. Massage the entire foot concentrating on the heels and ankles to remove any dry, rough spots.
