Make your vital oil and tea!

Buying pre-made foot soaks can be unnecessarily expensive.  The ingredients for foot soaks are inexpensive and easy to find and you can then control exactly what it is your foot bath.
You can make a large batch which will last a long time.  Foot soak kits also make nice gifts.

Simple Epson Salt Soak
1 Part Epson Salt
1 Part Baking Soda

Mix together and store in air-tight container.  When using, add the desired amount to warm water (about 1/2 a cup for a foot soak).  You can add a few drops of your favorite smelling essential oils.  Or, if you are trying to treat a foot fungus, you can add Tea Tree Oil, Orange Oil, and Oregano Oil.
Sea Salt Soak
1 Part Sea Salt
1 Part Epson Salt
1 Part Baking Soda

Mix together and store in air-tight container.  When using, add the desired amount to warm water (about 1/2 a cup for a foot soak).  You can add a few drops of your favorite smelling essential oils.


You can try experimenting with different types of salts and modify the amounts of Epson salt versus baking soda, etc.  Basically, there is no wrong way to put these together.  If you find a preferred mixture–make it!
Herbal Tea Foot Soak
Use any of the above recipes and add an herbal tea packet to your warm water.  Chamomile is a great choice since chamomile is well known for its skin healing and soothing properties
