Luxurious Lavender and Rose Mineral Foot Bath
The sensitive skin and tissues of the feet contain many nerves and blood vessels that readily absorb the healing effects of essential oils and carry them throughout the body. A foot massage can be easily performed on oneself and is a perfect stress-reducing activity.
1 tablespoon Epsom salts
1 tablespoon sodium bicarbonate or 1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon French white clay powder
8 drops lavender oil
4 drops rose oil
4 drops cedarwood oil
2 drops patchouli oil
2 gallons of hot water
1 tablespoon rose petals
1 tablespoon lavender flowers
Combine dry ingredients. Add the essential oils and mix evenly.
Dissolve the mixture in a large basin containing two gallons of hot water. Sprinkle flowers into the basin and soak feet for as long as desired.
