Have you been ignoring your feet?  If so, think of this- our feet are constantly supporting our body’s weight while taking us everywhere we need to go, keeping up with us and our busy day to day schedules.

Give your feet the much needed attention that they deserve!  You can easily create a foot bath at home by trying one of the recipes below.  It’ll only take a few minutes and your feet will surely thank you for it.

First you’ll need a foot spa. This can be a large bowl, container or pale- whatever is large enough to allow you to fully submerge your feet (your ankles and lower legs, too!) in water.  Foot baths are convenient, too. You can place your foot bath in front of your favorite chair of sofa and relax while sitting down to read a novel or watch some television.

For each recipe below, fill your foot spa with medium warm water (for the Refreshing Foot Bath use cold water).  Next, simply measure out the ingredients and add them one at a time to your foot bath.  Each foot bath recipe calls for the perfect amount of ingredients for one therapeutic foot soak.  Finally, place your feet in the bowl and allow them to soak for at least 10 minutes.  When you’re finished soaking, pat your feet and legs dry with a soft towel and put on your comfy slippers (have these next to you before you start your spa treatment).

Repairing Foot Bath
½ cup Dead Sea Salt
3 drops Bergamot Essential Oil
2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
1 teaspoon Sea Kelp Powder

If you’ve just stepped out in your favorite new pair of shoes and are feeling the effects of breaking them in- tired, achy feet and perhaps a few painful blisters, try the Repairing Foot Bath.  The Dead Sea Salt will cleanse and quicken the healing process of any broken skin.  The Bergamot & Peppermint oils and Sea Kelp Powder will aide in the skincare and healing process as well.

Detox Foot Bath
½ cup Dead Sea Salt
3 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
2 drops of Juniperberry Essential Oil
1 teaspoon Ginger Root Powder

For the ultimate purifying foot treatment try the Detox Foot Bath.  All of the ingredients for this recipe are ideal for ridding your feet, ankles and legs of toxins and impurities.

Refreshing Foot Bath
½ cup Himalayan Salt
3 drops Lime Essential Oil
3 drops Orange Essential Oil
1 teaspoon Ginger Root Powder

A great morning foot bath, the Refreshing Foot Bath will wake up and re-energize your tired tootsies.  Soaking your feet with mineral rich Himalayan salt will uplift you and by adding the refreshing citrus oils you’ll truly awaken and be ready for the day ahead of you.  The ginger powder will provide a detoxing element to your foot soak.  Remember to use cold water for this recipe.

Bedtime Foot Bath
½ cup Pacific Sea Salt
3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
1 drop Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil
1 teaspoon Mustard Powder

As you're winding down to the end of the day, soak your feet in a wonderfully calming foot bath.    The blend of salts and essential oils will help fight insomnia so you can be on your way to a pleasant night’s sleep.  Mustard powder is also added in this recipe as another calming and sleep promoting ingredient.
