Rita, my feet almost could fall of from working here on the farm. My feet almost fell off after I used this soak. Didn't think my lavender epsom salts would make a metal bucket smell so good! I propped up my other foot, while I took a relaxing and soothing foot soak, one at a time. I also used a bit extra epsom salt to gently massage my feet (under the water) at the end of the soak! Great, great! Bravo!

Suffering from a sinus infection and used this along with Rita's ginger tea recipe #56108. Helped so much! I used the eucalyptus, lavender and peppermint along with 10 drops of rosemary. Also threw in the two herbal tea bags after removing them from my tea- more bc I felt too bad to get up and toss them in the trash! Really really comforting and healing. Relieved my stuffy head. Thanks DR Rita!

This was great. I had some left-over that I used for a foot soak couple of weeks later - the foot soak was even better! I have since made it only for my feet, using 5 drop eucalyptus and 5 drops peppermint together. Fabulous.
