Most of us are busy and I don’t know about you, but my feet get tired.  I’ve always enjoyed counteracting the stress of tired, swollen, achy feet is by soaking them in Epsom salts.  Last week when Angie shared a Lime & Mint Foot Soak I thought it would be a great idea to mix up a batch to have on hand while we get ready to move this month.  I’m certain I’ll be exhausted and in need of a good relaxing foot soak many nights to come.

The soothing, homemade mixture of Epsom salt, lime zest and various natural ingredients would also make a welcome gift for Mother’s Day or Teacher Appreciation ; use the Foot Soak Label template as a gift tag or label, and affix it to a jar or bag to treat someone special.

To make the foot soak, combine 2 cups of Epsom salts with 1/2 cup baking soda and zest of one lime in a large bowl, and add  3-4 drops of lime essential oil and 3-4 drops of peppermint essential oil. Stir with wooden spoon to mix thoroughly. (optional, you could add just a drop of green food coloring if you’d like) Pour the mixture into a jar or bag, and use within a few weeks.

*store in a cool dark place, like refrigerator if using lime zest.  If you’d like it to keep longer, omit the zest.

  • Epsom Salt will soothe aches, eliminate smells and softens up rough skin. 
  • Baking Soda is good for exfoliating, leaving your skin soft and smooth and helps eliminate odors.
  • Lime is routinely used for its energizing, fresh and cheerful aroma. It is well known in folklore for its ability to cleanse, purify and renew the spirit and the mind. It is also said to be effective in cleansing the aura.
  • Peppermint is uplifting and fresh.  The menthol induces a cooling sensation, and can help to cool you down,  help ease tension headaches and muscular aches and pains.

Sounds heavenly right?  You can’t go wrong with that combo!

    Hello,

    I have everything to make the foot soak except the lime essential oil. Do you think I could just add more zest?

    Thanks!

    I have to try this one! I like natural moisturizer with lavender oil to refresh the tired feet. I will probably use natural anti-fungal soap to get more healthy skin.

    I love DIY body products! AND I have ALL the ingredients! Someone’s feet are going to be VERY happy!
