Gardeners Herbal Foot Soak Recipe

Gardener’s Herbal Foot Soak Recipe

If you come in from the garden with dirty, achy feet then this herbal soak is for you.  It stores well in a pretty jar but packs a powerful punch of soothing herbs in a foot bath.  And why should feet have all the fun?  You could surely use it in the tub too.  Ahhhh.

    Hi JeriMC, Here is some information on where to buy that I hope helps you. I’m not sure where you live so I’ll ve general and refer to the internet when I can find links.

    Look for petals and leaves in your garden to dry, or check out a loose leaf tea store. You could even buy some herbal tea in bags and use that.

    When I used up all my garden lavender, I bought more from Amazon: http://amzn.to/L0MfLY. There are just so many projects that you can use lavender in. You can buy smaller amounts as well: http://amzn.to/KUjPNQ

    Spirulina Powder comes from health food and vitamin stores. Here is some online http://amzn.to/L2sUXa.

    Here is an essential oil starter pack that has 6 great scents (Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Orange, Peppermint): http://amzn.to/KaEyDy

    I hope this gets you what you need. Let me know if you need more info.

    I love the recipes you put forth for natural health benefits. However I have noticed as like this foot remedy, it does not say how to use it! How much of it do you use and I am assuming you do it in a tub as with any foot soak?! Just a suggestion to add this tidbit of information. Especially if your giving as a gift with the recipes and directions of how to make it! Great posts!

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog audience have complained about my
    website not operating correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
