Relaxing Foot Soak

If you follow me on social media you will remember a couple months ago I was stage managing a community theater production of Carousel. After just the first week in Tech my feet hurt like crazy! I decided to make a foot soak to help soothe my tired feet.

This soak is amazing! It not only calms those agitated foot muscles, it also smells amazing! I found that once I soaked my feet I could then go several days without doing it again. It relaxed my feet pretty completely and left them feeling very soft.

You can make this recipe without the essential oils if you don’t have them on hand. You will still have some relaxing benefits. The EO’s simply provide additional relaxation to the muscles. I highly suggest using them if possible, especially the peppermint and rosemary. These EO’s will provide your tired feet with the most comfort.

I used my laundry tub to soak my feet, I don’t happen to have anything smaller that I could have used. I put in ½ cup of soak into the entire tub. You can feel free to adjust how much you add based on the size of your container.
