Sandal Ready Feet


Pamper your toes with some rest and relaxation and get them looking sandal ready for summer! Here is a fabulous and natural foot soak recipe that will energize those tired feet and have them feeling and looking beautiful. Energizing Citrus Soak 3 Oranges (cut into round slices) 2 Grapefruits (cut into round slices) 1 Tbsp Epsom Salts 4 Peppermint Tea Bags Fill a foot bath or large bowl with water as hot as you can handle it! Add ingredients above to the water. Place a towel over the foot basin while your feet are submerged in the soak. This will help maintain the temperature of the water and get the full benefit of the fruit soak! Soak time: 15 minutes

After you have soaked your feet, pat them dry. Then use your favourite peppermint lotion and massage your feet. Spend time on the heels and balls of your feet because we tend to use those more during the day. Give yourself 10 minutes on each foot. Benefits: • Citrus helps energize and also acts as a natural detox for the body for balance. • Grapefruit is a great antioxidant • Peppermint helps cool and energize tired and achy muscles • Epsom salts help cleanse, reduce inflammation and helps to heal any infections. • Peppermint Lotion great to add moisture and also energizes your feet!
