DIY Homemade Foot Soak with Essential Oils

Making a DIY homemade foot soak with essential oils, which are therapeutic quality, can help to soothe your muscles, rid your feet of aches and pains from being on them for hours or from wearing your favorite but very uncomfortable shoes.  Letting your feet soak in a foot bath can help reduce swelling and prevent blisters or cuts from becoming infected. Foot care is an important part of caring for the body, mind and spirit. 

DIY Homemade Foot Soak with Essential Oils

Soaking your feet can relieve stress, renew those tired feet and even relax your whole body.*  Following is a simple recipe we not only like for ourselves but also makes a great holiday gift for teacher’s, boss, or anyone who is on their feet for an extended period of time.  Find a cute jar at the dollar store, add a personalized label and you have a nice homemade gift.

DIY Homemade Foot Soak with Essential Oils

Lime & Peppermint Foot Soak*

  • Combine Epsom salt with baking soda and zest of one lime.
  • Add a few drops of Lime essential oil and Peppermint essential oil.
  • Stir with wooden spoon to mix thoroughly.
  • Pour the mixture into a jar or bag, and use within a few weeks.

Foot Care Essential Oil Blend

We have combined two essential oils for foot care in our convenient Foot Care Essential Oil Blend. Tea tree and French lavender essential oil are the best essential oils for healthy cleansing and purifying. Both tea tree and lavender have antifungal properties.* Tea tree essential oil and French lavender essential oil work better together (synergistic) for cleansing and purifying than when they are used separately. 

If you purchase our Foot Care Essential Oil Blend concentrate,  dilute it before you apply it directly to your feet. Add 3 to 4 drops of the concentrate to 10 ml (2 teaspoons) of carrier oil, body oil, cream, or body lotion.
