A foot spa can be an immensely relaxing experience. It allows you to rest your tired feet which bear your weight for the whole day. And at the same time, if you are using aroma oils, you can also make this a relaxing experience for the mind and the rest of your body. And of course relaxation isn’t the only thing you get – a properly done foot spa also means softer feet and better looking nails, not to mention hygiene. So today we are teaching you how you can do such a beneficial and relaxing foot spa at home!
For this you will need the following items:
- A tub half filled with warm water
- Some incense sticks to burn
- Essential oils of your choice – lavender, chamomile or frankincense work best
- Sugar foot scrub [Link back to N Homemade Foot Scrub]
- Nail clippers
- Cuticle oil
- Shea butter
To begin with, we should mention that this one is best done before bedtime. Firstly, your feet are the most tired at the end of the day. And putting on your socks and going to sleep means that the foot spa will actually have added benefits for your feet. So – here goes…
Step 1: Start by lighting up an incense stick or two to create a soothing atmosphere.
Step 2: Pick whichever oil you like – or you can use a combination of 2. You will only need 3-4 drops in all.
Step 3: Add the oils to the water in the tub.
Step 4: Dip your feet in the tub and relax for 10 minutes or so.
Step 5: Apply some of the sugar scrub and run gently over both your feet. Do not dry your feet first.
Step 6: Wash with the water afterwards.
Step 7: Now dry your feet with the towel.
Step 8: Now use the nail clipper to trim your nails. If need be you can also use a nail file.
Step 9: Apply the cuticle oil to your toe nails and rub in.
Step 10: Next apply the shea butter to the rest of your feet and massage till it is absorbed.
Step 11: Finally, put on your socks and just relax or go to bed. The socks will keep the warmth in, and make sure that the shea butter does its job of moisturizing your feet well!
And as for watching exactly how it is done, here is a very simple video from YouTube to walk you through the process:
As you can see – a bit of foot pampering is incredibly easy to do at home. And what’s more, you do not need difficult to get and expensive supplies also most of the time! Of course, if you would like to use a foot spa tub [footsie bath] for the soaking, you could always get one. But without it too, a foot spa at home can be done, and it can be done well!
