Foot Bath Recipe with Happy Joy Essential Oil Blend

Feet go through a lot, I mean they get you pretty much everywhere you need to go. But with that great responsibility comes the dirt, callouses, and other wear and tear that you may not always think of!

Most people don’t like dealing with their feet looking nice, but sometimes it gets to the point where they are in desperate need of attention. Luckily, this foot bath is super easy to make and can help your feet get back into their best state!

I love how easy this recipe is to make! This foot bath is good for your overall health, so using this recipe can help you feel good in more than one way!

Carrier Oil

You need a carrier oil to soften the skin and act as a carrier for putting oil in water. Some examples of carrier oils include fractionated coconut oil, almond oil, and jojoba oil, any of which will work!

Sea Salt

Sea salt is needed in this recipe to add nutrients into the foot bath! It also dissolves into the water so it can be evenly distributed for the whole foot.

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt is used in a wide variety of bath recipes. It has soothing properties that can allow your feet to relax.

Happy Joy Essential Oil Blend

Happy Joy Essential Oil Blend is a combination of Geranium, Grapefruit, Orange, and Ylang-Ylang essential oils. Its uplifting properties will be sure to put you in a good mood while cleansing your feet!

Foot Basin/Bath

A foot basin or bath is needed for the recipe to be put to use! Having one of these can come in handy for future foot bath/soak recipes that may come out 😉
