Foot Care Is Very Important


So often we forget to look after the little things that mean so
 much to our overall well being.  Take feet for example.  
They carry us from place to place, tucked into often tight
 footwear where they overheat, are overworked and under appreciated.
A few minutes is all it takes to repay your feet for their 

diligence to ensure they continue to function at their best for you

Foot Soak

A relaxing foot soak does not need to be complicated, but the relief it can bring to tired, worn out feet can be tremendous.

1/2 cup epsom salts
1/2 cup bicarbonate of soda 
2 tablespoons of citric acid
5 drops of peppermint essential oil
r powder &/or dried peppermint leaves (optional)

Sieve dry ingredients into bowl and combine well.  Add half this mixture to a container large enough to accommodate your feet comfortably. Prepare a relaxing beverage of your choice. Add plenty of warm water to dissolve your soak ingredients.  Immerse your feet, sit back, and enjoy.

Saturday Soap Class

We have another beginners soap class booked in for Saturday 12th April.  Please book your place early as places are strictly limited

Foot Scrub

Having softened the skin on your feet with a calming soak an envigorating scrub will help to remove any dead skin and moisturise new found tissue.

Combine 1 cup fine salt with 1/4 cup sweet almond oil (or as required).  Add 8 drops lemon myrtle and 5 drops lavender essential oil.

Gently massage the scrub into your feet concentrating on hardened areas and rinse clean.  Your feet will feel soft, moisturised and ready to jump back to life.
