After a long day of being on my feet all day they need a bit of pampering. Soaking my feet helps to soften them, fight foot odor, and fight fungal diseases. I had been purchasing a well-known brand of eucalyptus and spearmint foot soak, but to save a bit of money I decided to make my own homemade foot soak.
Homemade Foot Soak
3 cups of Epsom Salt
1 cup of Baking Soda
18 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
10 drops of Spearmint Essential Oil
Into a clean jar I add Epsom salt and baking soda. I add a lid and shake well to equally mix ingredients. I remove the lid and carefully add the eucalyptus essential oil. I add the lid and shake well to equally distribute the ingredients. I remove the lid and carefully add the spearmint essential oil. I add the lid and shake well to equally distribute the ingredients. Lastly I label the jar.
When I am ready to use the foot soak I get a large plastic container that can house both of my feet comfortably. I use a dish pan I purchased for $1. I add the desired amount of homemade foot soak to the plastic container. I usually add about 1/3 cup. Lastly I fill the container with hot tap water.
Ahhh… What a way to relax after a long day. I hope you enjoy this homemade foot soak as much as I do!
