Fall Blend Homemade Foot Soak
This soothing, moisturizing homemade foot soak wakes up tired feet!
Changes in weather will affect skin and hair, and you’ll need a few good recipes under your belt to moisturize, exfoliate, and rejuvenate!
If you find yourself out working in the yard a lot this fall, or you’re just plain in need of some pampering, fall-themed recipe is perfect!
Sage leaves are thought to be antibacterial, while eucalyptus opens up pores and sinuses. The mint leaves in this recipe allow skin to soak up the other nutrients, and parsley has antioxidants to help prevent cell damage. Epsom salt contains magnesium, encouraging muscles to relax.
- foot bath full of warm water
- ½ cup Epsom salt
- sage leaves, eucalyptus leaves, mint leaves, and parsley leaves – dry or fresh
- small muslin bag /coffee filter
Place herbs in the muslin bag. (Tie them up in a coffee filter if you don’t have a muslin bag.) Steep the bag in the water for 30 minutes or so. Place your feet in the water and soak for at least 15 minutes. Soak until skin is wrinkled and pruny-looking. This is the point at which the nutrients can really permeate the skin. After soaking, dry your feet and apply a foot moisturizer for the perfect finish.
