Foot Baths + Clean mani /Pedis
Whether you want to just add more peace + pretty toes to your life, or you want to reap the cleansing benefits of the soda, salt + oils in this self care treatment - I've got you covered!
ps - if you own a salon or spa - this would be a beautiful way to honour the health of your clients
and their feet will feel so soft + fresh!
Plus this foot bath will cost way less than the harmful chemicals your salon might currently be using.
(* note - this is not advised if you have open wounds on your foot)
Let's review the ingredients going in the foot bath:
To a large bowl/basin, add:
1/2c plain epsom salts: transdermally delivers sulfur and magnesium (majority of people are deficient) and both of these minerals support your body's detoxification
1/2c baking soda: alkalizes, absorbs heavy metals, exfoliates + soothes skin - creates silky water!
2 drops doTERRA Peppermint (highest in the constituent menthol) for cleansing + boosting circulation
5 drops doTERRA Zendocrine Blend - read how it supports detoxification here

Here are the simple steps:
Scrape dead skin from heels + dry skin brush bottoms and top of feet.
Mix ingredients into large bowl/basin and then add warm/hot water…
Soak feet for 20 min while you listen to calming music or a meditation or the calm app
Dry off. Apply any details like cuticle push back, clipping, filing etc.
You can paint your nails later after all this goodness absorbs.
I get this question all the time so I thought I'd share my top clean nail polish brands ...
The harmful chemicals you want to avoid in polish are: formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), Camphor, Formaldehyde Resin xylene and triphenyl phosphate (TPHP).
Some of the cleaner brands are free of 5 of these and my fave (Pacifica) is free of all of them.
Happy home spa day!
