Summer Time Foot Bath
|Yesterday I shared my latest foot cream formula with you for quickly pampering your feet at the end of the day when your feet just ache everywhere. I had been thinking and asked myself, “If I had more time at the end of my day to pamper my feet, how would I add to the routine?” After just a minute or so of thinking, I decided that soaking my feet in a bath would be fantastic. Now I just had to choose the ingredients of my soak.
I wasn’t sure which ingredients I wanted at first but after some careful consideration, I knew I wanted to use Peppermint Leaves, Epsom Salt and Milk Powder. With these ingredients in mind, I formulated a mixture to go in a tea bag.
I chose to add Peppermint Leaves because the Peppermint Herbal Teas that I have consumed in the past give a nice refreshed feeling to my throat. I figure that such a tea on my feet would leave my feet feeling cooled.
I’m using Milk Powder for this soak because I find a milk soak to be enjoyable. I know that sometimes my feet are rough and scaly. Ok, I know my feet are like that probably 90% of the time, but a girl can dream about having soft feet, right?
As Epsom Salts are well known for their soothing and relaxing properties, I knew that I wanted to use these salts. I love Epsom Salts for foot soaks because my feet always feel like a million bucks after their soak.
These soaks can be put in the small Heat and Seal tea bags if you don’t want it to be used in a large bath or you don’t want to remove particulate from between the toes. The smaller bag size allows for smaller “servings” and for the bags to be used in a bucket, basin, or tub, just for your feet.

Weigh everything into a container. I lined mine with a plastic bag for easy mixing and clean up. Weigh all our your ingredients. Mix. Pour into jars or tea bags. Enjoy!
