The rigors of walking continuously throughout the day or standing for extended periods of time can wear on your feet. When you want to relax at the end of the day, tired, painful feet can be an unwelcome distraction. Give your feet some tender loving care by soaking them in a mixture of water and sea salt. Add extra ingredients if you want to make it more like a spa experience.
Fill a large basin or two large containers, one for each foot, with enough hot water to reach up to your ankles once you place your feet inside.
Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of sea salt into the water. If you're using two containers, divide the desired quantity of sea salt equally, such as 1 tablespoon in each container. Stir the salt with a large spoon to help it dissolve.
Add up to 5 drops of essential oils, such as rosemary or peppermint, to the basin or containers once the hot water cools enough to place your feet in. Divide the amount of drops if you are using two separate containers. Stir the water gently with a spoon.
Soak your feet in the water until it becomes cool and is no longer comfortable, approximately 15 to 30 minutes. Pat feet dry with a towel.
