5 Homemade Foot Soak Recipes

One way to soothe and pamper tired, achy tootsies is to soak them in a hot foot bath. Here are a handful of recipes to try, each are easy to make using simple ingredients.

They can be whipped up in large batches if preferred so you have a stock on hand or package nicely and give away as gifts (sealed in glass jars).

Directions: Unless otherwise noted, mix together all ingredients thoroughly then store in an airtight container.

Water temperature is at personal preference, but I find the hottest my feet will comfortably tolerate gives the most relief.
