I am always trying to figure out new ways to bring out my inner calm by using different pampering techniques to soothe my soul. Like using at home holistic pedicures, body scrubs, lighting candles and such. With many of us living in time where there can be a lot of stress, much of that stress if we allow it can take over out body and show outward even if we have not done much physical tedious work.
Did you know stress can actually show up in our feet? Our feet are in need of some major pampering on a regular basis. This natural regime is the perfect remedy for removing some of those toxins, and giving your feet the attention they so much deserve.
Honey is used as an ingredient in each of the following steps. Be sure to look for honey that is locally produced and organic. (If you are vegan, you can leave out the honey or go for some organic agave nectar.) I do not eat agave nectar which is something I will discuss in a later post, but very rarely I will use it as a substitute for some things.
This is an easy fall all natural Detox for your feet and soul!
What you will need is:
2 bags of black tea (look for fair-trade brands in stores)
Teaspoon of honey
Teaspoon of lemon
Bucket of warm/hot water
Soak your feet in the mixture for at least ten minutes. Be sure to use a pumice stone to remove dead skin. Proceed to the next step.
½ cup of Hawaiian sea salt (or any sea salt will do)
Teaspoon of honey
Three tablespoons of coconut oil (or any oil)
After combining these ingredients, massage onto your feet, paying extra attention to achy spots. While you’re at it, massage into your hands as well. Rinse off with warm water.
A tablespoon or two of honey (look at the farmers markets for the best deals)
A teaspoon or two of coconut oil (sweet almond oil would as well)
Stir together the above ingredients in a bowl. Place the bowl in a larger vat of warm water to heat the honey/oil mixture as you Detox and scrub. Slather onto your feet and read a magazine for 10-15 minutes. You can wrap your feet in saran wrap or some old socks for an extra touch heated touch. When your time is up, and you feel it is time to take them off, rinse off thoroughly with warm water with your favorite gentle organic soap. (Castile Soap would do)
Use my mixture of Shea butter mixed with Jojoba oil or Grape seed Oil to top it all off and you’re done!
P.S. Would Love to hear your comments on the Recipe.
