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, assisted me with measurements".


  1. Add 2-cups of coffee to 1-gallon of water and soak for 10 to 15 minutes, rinse feet, dry and moisturize.
  2. This remedy works well warm or cool.
  3. Always be sure to dry your feet thoroughly (between toes) with a clean, cotton towel.
  4. 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 Recipe #279850 #279850. (And then took a shower and used Recipe #107722 #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.
