Over the weekend, I went to plug in my bubbling foot bath, only to find that it was no longer in working condition. I was quite bummed, as I had my evening of foot pampering already planned. So what to do? I made my own foot bath.

I took a really large stainless steel mixing bowl, and filled it with very warm, almost hot, water. I added a few orange and lemon slices to the bowl, and then went looking for a few other goodies in my kitchen cupboard. I found some sea salt, which I added a good tablespoon, and some rosemary, so I added a few teaspoons of that too. I then added a few drops of Vitamin E oil. The scent of the bath was calling my name.

I soaked my feet for about 20 minutes, and used parts of the course sea salt to scrub some dead skin off my heels.

Let me tell you, this simple foot bath had my feet looking and feeling great.

Do you have your own foot care or foot bath recipe you would like to share? I would love some more suggestions, as I plan to make my own footbaths from now on.
