5 Homemade Foot Soak Recipes
Posted By Tipnut On February 1, 2007 @ 7:08 am In Home Spa | 35 Comments
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.
1 part Epsom salts
1 part Baking soda
drops of choice EO (optional)
Chamomile Tea: #2
4 bags chamomile tea
1/8 cup dried parsley
4 drops EO of choice
2 cups Kosher salt
1 cup Epsom salts
drops EO of choice (optional)
1 1/4 cups Epsom salts
1 1/4 cups Kosher salt
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup cornstarch

Marbles or smooth river rocks can be added to the bottom of the basin to rub feet over while they’re soaking, quite soothing!
