DIY Spa Treatment: Alfalfa Mint Footbath

We all know how wonderful it can feel to take a long soak in a bath, but for those of you who are pressed for time but still want to indulge in a little treat for your tired feet, here's an at home, do-it-yourself recipe from all-natural beauty expert Janice Cox. She believes that “If you can cook, you can create your own beauty products." Here's what you'll need to concoct a fabulous and calming foot bath for your footsies!

  • Use a piece of cheesecloth and wrap four tablespoons dried alfalfa leaves, two tablespoons dried mint leaves and two tablespoons dried thyme leaves inside.
  • Fill a basin with two gallons of hot water, and pour in four tablespoons of Epsom salts.
  • Stir the bath until the salts dissolve, then float the herbal bundle in the water to steep until the temperature cools.
  • Finally, soak your feet in the fragrant water anywhere from fifteen to twenty minutes. When you are finished, pat your body dry and massage a thick foot cream or grape seed oil into your skin.

I have never seen or noticed dried alfalfa leaves anywhere.. okay I haven't looked but are they easily found in most grocery stores? I know mine carries alfalfa sprouts, lol! This diy treatment sounds great! I love doing something like this every once in a while to feel pampered!
