A recipe that I adopted, this is what the original description stated "This is the latest trend in specialized pedicures. Any kind of foot soak is good, but when you need a boost, coffee seems to soothe and stimulate feet. My aesthetician, Josephine Chinea of Curandero Cures, Inc. at www.stressshop.com, assisted me with measurements".
- Add 2-cups of coffee to 1-gallon of water and soak for 10 to 15 minutes, rinse feet, dry and moisturize.
- This remedy works well warm or cool.
- Always be sure to dry your feet thoroughly (between toes) with a clean, cotton towel.
- May you walk on gentle roads in peace.
I made this using hot, not warm water, and throughly enjoyed the experience. A great way to relax after a day of hiking and travel. My one addition to the treatment, which comes from viewing a clip on the Food Network, about spa treatments offered at the Hershey Spa. After letting my feet soak in the coffee bath, I used the grounds as a natural exfolliant. Wonderful addition and one to be tried.
A nice hot soak stimulates me anyway; the smell of the coffee would stimulate my sense of smell and mask funky foot smells. I followed this treatment with Espresso Scrub for Your Tootsies #279850. (And then took a shower and used Black Coffee Hair Shine #107722.) Made for January 2009 Comfort Cafe.
Very soothing. Like the other reviewer, I too am not sure what stimulated feet feel like. But it was still nice to be able to sit back and just relax. Thanks for posting! Made and reviewed for 1-2-3 Hit wonders tag game.
