Moment of Me Wednesdays - Foot Baths

I dont know about you but after a long day working on our farm my feet ache, so today for moment of me Wednesday I thought I would bring you some fabo foot bath recipes


Fill a large bowl or pan with cold or warm water to cover ankles.
Place stones or marbles in the bottom of the bowl. When you move your feet over the marbles they act as wonderful soothing and stimulating massagers.

Drop 2 - 3 drops of Essential Oil onto water, try these combinations:


  • 3 drops tea tree, 3 drops lavender, 2 drops lemon


  • 3 drops marjoram, 1 drop peppermint, 1 drop lavender

Immerse feet in water and soak! - Enjoy.


A small cup (1/2 cup for a foot bath) of epsom salts can be mixed into the water to help with relaxing muscles, cleansing skin and increasing circulation.

Here are a few more homemade foot soak recipes I've found at various web sites. Experiment with a few to find one you like.

Honey Foot Soak

A great foot soother with natural, antisceptic qualities! A great stress reliever, too!

1 cup honey
1 gallon warm water


Mix 1-cup of honey to 1 gallon of warm water and soak for 10 to 15 minutes.

Coffee Foot Soak

When you need a boost, coffee seems to soothe and stimulate feet.

2 cups coffee (brewed not instant)
1 gallon warm water


Add 2-cups of coffee to 1-gallon of water and soak for 10 to 15 minutes, rinse feet, dry and moisturize.
