Boss’s Day Foot Soaks 2

Good morning! Did you know that Monday the 17th is Boss’s Day? I am really glad I found out about Boss’s Day because sometimes they just need a thank you. Do you know what I mean? I was thinking about all of the things a boss does. They get to settle disagreements, help unsatisfied customers, call about the shipments that haven’t arrived yet, worry about backorders, etc. Phew. I am so glad I don’t have to do what they do. Also, on top of everything that they do during the work day, when they go home their minds are whirring thinking about all of the things they have to get done tomorrow!

I think the big cheese should at least get a thank you once in a while. Can you imagine breathing, eating, dreaming and bleeding your job? Don’t get me wrong, we all work really hard but I think sometimes we forget to say thank you when we head out the door. When you leave work today, would you do a favor for me? No matter what went right or wrong, please tell your boss thank you.

After a really long day, we all like to relax. I wondered about something I could make that would be nice and relaxing and unisex. With fall here and the temperatures cooling down I thought it would be wonderful to relax with a warm holiday scented foot soak. It almost makes me think of sitting down with a cup of soul warming wassail. What do you think? Our wonderful soaks can start with some tired and worn feet. Come join me in the kitchen for the warm delight of sharing a gratitude attitude.

    I had a question regarding packaging of product that contain essential oils like the foot soak you made above. I know that pure essential oils should be store in glass bottle because they can damage or weaken plastic bottles. But when they are diluted or used in a small percentage like in this foot soak is it safe to package them in plastic bags like you did or does it weaken the bag eventually?

    It is safe to package in bags. We don’t like glass in the bathroom, especially when tile is the flooring choice. So we use the bags and they work wonderfully well.
