DIY Relaxing Ginger Winter Foot Soak

28 Oct


With winter here, I pay special attention to my feet as I tend to get dry around the heels. I love to soak my feet in warm water once a week, and to make the experience more relaxing, I made a foot soak with the goodness of ginger, ylang ylang and tangerine.


Ginger, when used as a foot soak, is said to warm and relax your muscles, thus releiving stress and aches.

To make youself this footsoak, combine:

  • half a cup of sea salt
  • half a cup of Epsom salts
  • 2 tbsp of ginger powder
  • 5 drops of tangerine essential oil
  • 3 drops of ylang ylang essential oil

To use the soak, just add a couple of spoonfuls to some warm warm water, and soak those tired feet for ten to fifteen minutes.



This foot soak also doubles up as a great gift for Christmas.

Let me know if you try this one and I’d love to try any similar soaks you have made/used.



Enjoy the rest of your week my lovlies! Till later xoxo
