A homemade foot bath is a wonderful DIY spa experience! You can set up a foot bath in preparation for a mani-pedi, to soothe swollen feet on a hot summer day, or to soften foot calluses and corns.
Homemade foot bath
The base of this homemade foot bath is made with Epsom salt, a magnesium sulfate compound known to reduce inflammation, relieve pain and eliminate odour. Dried milk powder and moisturizing sweet almond oil act as emulsifiers to disperse the essential oils in the water.
Tea tree oil helps to soften calluses, while peppermint oil and rosemary soothe cracked, dry skin. The citrus essential oils and lemon peel will leave your feet smelling wonderfully fresh and clean. And now onto smooth feet!
