Whether your feet contend with high heels, hard floors, and long days or get a workout in runners and gardening clogs, they deserve a little pampering, right? When I come in from the garden in my very favorite gardening flip flops I’m sure to leave a dirt trail behind me. But even after a hot shower and a quick sweep, my feet still ache from the pounding they just took.

I made up a herbal foot soak just to pamper my tired tooties and it sure packs a punch. Don’t be fooled by the mild-mannered herbs often used in tea, they can really soak away a day of aches. Here is a recipe that I really love. The essential oils work to refresh feet, while comfrey, Epsom salts, and herbs ease the pain.

    where can I find lavender oils, here in south jersey and not easy to find at all, and so expensive when I did at health food store 40.00 for the smallest bottle, and not the best strong scent. Ordering over internet, not familiar with a good brand. Any suggestions would be great. Tried growing Lavender Inside and was not successful. Would love to have an outside plant year after year.

    @Patti – I get a lot of my supplies from Mountain Rose Herbs. They’re prices are reasonable, much cheaper than Young Living. Plus, almost everything is organic. Hope this helps! :)

    Can fragrances essences be used instead of essential oils in bath salts and scrubs? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks for your help.
