Tender Tootsies ~ DIY Natural Foot Soak

Besides the being ticklish part, who doesn’t love their feet rubbed? What better way to spend a Friday night than soaking your feet after a long week.

All of these ingredients are natural and can be found at your local grocery or natural market.

Foot soak

Fill up a large bowl with boiled, then slightly cooled water (be careful not to burn your skin!). Add:

  • 1 cup epsom salts
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 5 drops Tea Tree oil

Sit back and let your feet soak for 15 minutes.  Rinse off and towel dry.  Follow with a moisturizer.  Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer for cracked heels.  Apply liberally then put on socks until oil is fully absorbed.
