Perfect All-Natural Foot Soak

-->

A friend sends me information about all sorts of natural methods for body care, such as the baking soda-apple cider vinegar no-shampoo and this fantastic foot soak for tired tootsies. Because the no-shampoo works so well for my hair, I tried out the foot soak and was thrilled at how my feet and legs relaxed, and so did the rest of me. Here is what you do:

Dig out a basin, or as in the case of vegetarians like me, re-purpose that big turkey roasting pan that you don't plan to use for that any more.

Add the following to the pan/basin:
  • 1 T. Green (your choice of brand) dishwash liquid
  • 1 T. Honey (yes, you read right-- a disinfectant and a moisturizer)
  • 2 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or other accessible oil)
  • 5-10 drops of peppermint oil (I have linked to my favourite pure peppermint oil)
Fill the basin with warm water (as warm as you can take) and soak your feet for about ten+ minutes.  Dry.  Perfect time for a foot rub or reflexology.  Your feet will feel so rested and refreshed-- you will sleep better-- you will detox slightly (through your feet, yes!)-- and it makes the first "gift" to give someone else you care about.
