This refreshing Foot Bath makes a wonderful precursor to a full pedicure treatment. Borax, Baking Soda, and Lemon Juice help to soften the water as well as rough skin, preparing it for an exfoliating foot scrub to follow.
Peppermint Tea Tree Foot Soak
Makes 1 foot bath
1/2 gallon Warm Water
1/2 cup Epsom Salt
1 tablespoon Borax
1 tablespoon Baking Soda
The juice of 1/2 fresh lemon, or about 1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 oz Turkey Red Oil
10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
10 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
In a small cup, mix the Turkey Red Oil and Essential Oils together. Warm 1/2 gallon of water to a comfortable temperature (about the same as bath water) and pour it into a foot bath tub. Add the lemon juice, Epsom Salt, and powders to the warm water, and stir to dissolve. Next, add the Turkey Red Oil and Essential Oil Blend, and stir to disperse.
This recipe should be used immediately, as it would not be suitable for storage or packaging. Soak the feet for 10 - 20 minutes, or until the water cools.
