Foot Soak Recipe

After a long day at work, fill a clean dishpan halfway with water as hot as you can stand it.


  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 5 drops peppermint essential oil

  • 1/4 cup dried lavender, and/or several drops lavender essential oil

Epsom salts are very inexpensive at stores like Walmart or even drugstores.

Essential oils are available at health food stores or vitamin stores, usually starting at around $3.00 a bottle up to $20.00 or more. Since you only use a few drops at a time from each bottle, they last a very long time so are incredibly cost-effective.

Dried lavender is available at health food or gourmet stores, but is very cheap if you have your own plant. You could also substitute left-over rose petals from a bouquet or your garden. This recipe is also relaxing on its own without the lavender.
