Beauty DIY: Fizzy Foot Soak


How was your weekend? St. Pats? I mostly stayed in, so as to not push my luck of feeling better. But I did venture out for a couple of hours Friday--the weather in Atlanta was glorious this weekend--and I wore heels, not something I do on a regular basis. To keep my feet from aching in the morning, I swear by this Fizzy Foot Soak.

You'll Need:

  • Bowl for soaking your feet (I use a foot bath)
  • Clear, carbonated soda water/club soda/sparkling water/seltzer water (enough to soak feet)
  • 2 tbsp Epsom salt
  • 3 drops of eucalyptus oil (optional)
  • Vick's Vapor Rub (or make your own vapor rub here) or petroleum jelly or Icy Hot (optional)
  • Cotton socks (optional)


Method:

  • Put your feet into the bowl/foot bath.
  • Pour all ingredients into the bowl. 
  • I prefer the carbonated water super cold, but room temp is fine. Plain water can be used, but you won't have the fizzy sensation.
  • Enjoy the bubbly, fizzy, soothing sensation and soak feet for about 15 minutes.
  • Feel free to add more carbonated water.
  • Gently wash and dry feet.
  • To further soothe feet, feel free to do these optional steps:
    • Apply vapor rub, if you have sensitive feet, or Icy Hot if you can tolerate it, to dry feet.
    • Put on socks and your feet will be soft by morning.
  • Please avoid if you have diabetes, sensitive feet, sensitivities to ingredients mentioned, foot sores/cuts, or other health afflictions. Ask your Dr. before attempting if needed.
