How to make and use a foot bath
Fill a large tub or container with hot water (as hot as you can handle). You should probably use a bathtub that is not necessary in the kitchen. Optional: to keep the water hot, heat a kettle of water. Go pouring hot water from the kettle into the foot bath when it cools down.
Add one or more of the options above. For example, make a foot bath with 1/4 cup of Epsom salt and 1/4 cup of baking soda. Add optional essential oils. Just add about 4 drops total and only 2 drops if using peppermint. Mix the essential oils in a small amount of carrier oil first for better dispersion.
Soak your feet for 15-40 minutes. Towel dry your feet and moisturize with a natural moisturizer (like coconut oil) if desired. Always discard the water.
