Moms-to-Be Foot Soak

Introduction

Expectant mothers often experience discomfort in their feet, including swelling and a variety of aches and pains. One way to counteract these stresses is by soaking your feet in a soothing, homemade solution of Epsom salts and various natural ingredients. The mixture also makes a welcome gift; use the Foot Soak Label template as a gift tag, and affix it to the exterior of a small bag.

Materials

  • Foot soak gift labels
  • Epsom salts
  • Kosher salt
  • Baking soda
  • Cornstarch
  • Lemon essential oil
  • Spearmint essential oil
  • Coffee bag

Steps

  1. Step 1

    To make the foot soak, combine 1 1/4 cups of Epsom salts with an equal measure of kosher salt in a jar. Add a 1/4 cup each of baking soda and cornstarch, up to 1/2 teaspoon of lemon essential oil, and up to 1/4 teaspoon of spearmint essential oil.

  2. Step 2

    Attach the lid, and shake the jar to combine. Pour the mixture into a bag, and use within a few weeks.
