I don't think I have to give you the whole "feet are so important to our overall wellbeing" speech. We all know that we need our feet to carry us through this life and that if they are miserable, we are miserable! There is lots of information out there indicating that we detoxify a lot through our feet, too, so keeping them healthy and open helps to keep our whole being in-flow. (Keeping your feet warm is important, but if you can sleep without socks on, do it for detox sake!)
One of my very favorite ways to "treat" my feet is a foot soak at the end of the day (or anytime). I throw in a lot of the same ingredients I use for my full-body detox baths - epsom salt, bentonite clay, baking soda, essential oil(s), etc. Some people even throw in a little Apple Cider Vinegar! Then I take my little pumice scrubber and gently exfoliate my feet so they can BREATHE.
Next is my favorite part! I pat my feet dry and apply this delicious "Peppermint Foot Rub" by one of my favorite little companies Moon Valley Organics. It is a perfect opportunity for a little massage and self-care (reflexology is a powerful tool). This foot salve makes my feet feel so soft and refreshed, and it brings a soothing and healing sense of circulation. My feet come back to life! The arnica is perfect for helping with swelling as well. The scent could not be more perfect this time of year, too...such a treat!
|All you need is a tub/bucket, a pumice, and this Peppermint Foot Rub to take yourself to the spa! (Candy cane-striped Toesox add to the experience as well!)|

So, whether you have literally walked ten miles today or just got home from a holiday party where you danced the night away in killer shoes, take some time to give your feet some love with this Peppermint Foot Rub...and grab some other stocking stuffers while you are at it. There are plenty of goodies to choose from! I can already hear the grateful sighs of relief!
