Soothe those aching feet with this easy, fragrant indulgence.
- A handful of fresh pine needles
- ½ cup Epsom salts
- 10 drops pine essential oil (optional)
Mix the above in a bowl and tie up in a piece of cheesecloth or put into a muslin bag.
Put the bag or parcel in a container large enough to hold both your feet. Electric foot baths are a lovely indulgence but the oil-changing tubs they sell at car part stores also work nicely. Pour hot or boiling water over ingredients. Cool enough to submerge your feet and enjoy. I like to rub my feet with the parcel. Seaweed is also a nice ingredient, soothing and healing for skin. Rinse, give your feet a rubdown with some lotion, and slip on some socks. Your feet will thank you.
