My favourite foot bath

Now I have finished my recipe for the best foot bath 🙂

Pure enough hot water in a ball to cover the feet. Add 2 tablespoons of epsom salt, 3-4 drops of lavender, 3-4 drops of frankincense and 3-4 drops of Hawaiian sandalwood.
Soak your feet in 20 minutes or longer.

Take one foot up on a towel. Gently remove dead cells under the nails and then by the cuticle.
Then rub softly with the towel on the overside of the foot to peel of dead skin.
Then take a fine sandstone and remove the dead skin under the foot.

Finish with a rich layer of almond oil and a sock of natural material like cotton or wool.

The same goes for the next food.

If you have sport feet you can add 3-4 drops of Melaleuca.
If your feet are swollen use 3-4 drops of peppermint instead of sandalwood. Or 2 drops lavender and 2 drops cypress all by themselves.

The sandstone is bought at a shop for skin care. I’ve experimented with different types of foot files and the best result is the sandstone – if I use the other types of files the amount of hard skin increases considerable.

I have experimented with different types of salt, but the epsom salt gives the best result – both according to removing dead skin easily and the feet gets really soft if you do this 2-3 times a week.

The oils I buy on doTerra.com

I’ll begin to make my own foot balm again but a little different.

The original recipe is 50/50 olive oil and beeswax (about 4 dl) melted together in a pot over very low heat. As soon as it all is melted remove the pot. Add essential oils or as I did 1-2 dl lavender/chamomile water I brewed myself. The lavender/chamomile water had to be exactly the same temperature. Then I took the pot in cold water and whipped the contence with an electrical whisk until the cream was fluffy and cooled down.

My new experiment will be to exchange the beeswax with coconut oil and use a couple of drops of essential oils in it. This cream will have to be stored in the refrigerator to avoid it to melt I believe.
