This weekend, I’m at my parent’s house visiting. My mom and I love to do crafty things together and this morning we already made Peppermint Lip Balm. Now we’re making Homemade Lavender Foot Soak. My feet are so tired today from all the standing I’ve done with my mom, so I wanted to create something that would be really soothing and pain-relieving. So, we decided to make a homemade lavender foot soak!
We had a lot of fun together and I enjoy visiting my parent’s house, but we usually end up tiring ourselves out from all the activities we do together. We have a few other projects up our sleeves, so expect to see some more content coming soon! Their house is perfect for taking photos because of all the natural light. Where I live, there is one window in the living room and one window in the kitchen. It’s pretty dark in there most of the time! And without purchasing high tech equipment for taking photos, it gets difficult in there. That’s one reason why I like it at my parent’s house.
In my last post, 7 Useful Self-Care Ingredients: Pros & Cons, I listed some of the benefits of Epsom salt & essential oils. In this recipe, I used Epsom salt because of its soothing benefits, lavender essential oil, and lavender flowers. It smells absolutely amazing and I love it! I used a small amount of purple coloring for the Epsom salt to create the purple color you see in the photos.
Homemade Lavender Foot Soak
This foot soak smells ah. maze. ing. If you like the smell of lavender, that is. But seriously, amazing. There are so many great benefits of Epsom salt. I’ll name just a few, but if you want to check out some more benefits, go here. Epsom salt soaks relieves symptoms of athlete’s foot, removes splinters, reduces swelling of injuries, and removes foot odor. I mean, it’s a pretty incredible and inexpensive self-care product.
