Aromatherapy and Herbal Foot Soak

Treat your feet to a little pampering with this softening and fragrant foot soak.

2 cups baking soda
1 teaspoon almond oil
5 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops sandalwood essential oil handful dried or fresh rose petals

1. Fill a plastic tub large enough to comfortably hold both of your feet with hot water. Add baking soda and stir to dissolve.

2. Mix lavender and sandalwood essential oils with almond oil and add to the footbath. Float dried rose petals in the bath if you like.

3. Soak your feet for 10 minutes or longer to soften calluses and cuticles.

4. While your feet are still damp, gently remove calluses with a pumice stone or callus file. Push back your cuticles with an orangewood stick.
