I love having bare feet. I only just put away my flip flops and started forcing myself to wear socks these last couple weeks. I can’t take it anymore – unfortunately it’s gotten too cold. Spending spring, summer, and this much of fall in bare feet has now left my feet looking pretty rough.
This foot soak uses chamomile and lavender to rejuvenate your feet at the same time as your spirit so you’ll be up on them again and feeling good in no time. This homemade foot soak is an inexpensive, all natural alternative to commercial foot baths. Prepare the foot soak, grab a good book, and settle onto the couch for some pampering. Here is the chamomile and lavender foot soak recipe.
Chamomile and Lavender Foot Soak
3 litres water
3 chamomile tea bags
5 drops lavender essential oil
Boil 2 litres of water in a kettle and pour into a large bowl.
Add 3 tea bags and allow to steep for 10 minutes.
Add remaining litre of water from the tap to achieve a comfortable temperature.
Pour in essential oils.
Relax and enjoy for around 15 minutes or until the water gets too cool.
Gently pat feet dry when done.
If desired, after the foot soak is an ideal time to pumice your feet to remove callouses.
For extra pampering, slather lotion on your feet then cover them with socks overnight.
Chamomile relieves dryness, and the tannic acid it contains can cure and prevent foot odor. Chamomile and lavender essential oil are both used to treat dermatitis, eczema, inflammation, cuts, and wounds. Lavender essential oil is also antimicrobial and acts as a deodorant. It is additionally used to treat athlete’s foot. These are both also sleep aids so your foot soak is likely to be a relaxing experience.
