At Home Foot Soak DIY Recipes

foot-soak-recipesSometimes you don’t have time or the money to go to the spa. So bring the spa to you! With this recipe, you’ll be feeling refreshed and relaxed in no time.

Some of us have jobs that have us standing all day. Even if that’s not the case, we’re usually wearing socks or shoes that harbor bacteria. I have to admit that I often neglect my feet when it comes to taking care of my body. But now that I have this recipe, I guess I have no more excuses! I try to do a soak about once every two weeks. 

This recipe includes some basic ingredients like warm water, epsom salt, and essential oils. The warm water helps soften the feet so that you can exfoliate. The epsom salt draws out toxins, increases circulation, relieves muscle cramps, and joint pain. And the essential oils have a mixture of anti-fungal, antiseptic, and pain relieving properties.

I hope you’re ready to spend an evening relaxing, soaking, and treating yourself!
