Refreshing Soak for Tired Toes

Refreshing Soak for Tired Toes

This couldn’t-be-easier citrusy soak is a sweet treat for tired, cold feet. Soothing, refreshing, and stimulating to the circulation, a super way to give our hard-working feet a welcome lift after all they do for us.


4 drops lemon essential oil
3 drops rosemary essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil

Add oils to 2 gallons of warm water in a dish basin or shallow tub and mix well. Soak feet for as long as you like, then towel dry. Follow up with a gentle foot-massage, if you like.
