What a wonderful relaxing treat for your feet! My daughter is a dancer and a waitress and she was in heaven while soaking her tired feet in this fragrant bath. Thanks for sharing this!

The hardest part of this was allowing myself the "permission" to sit down. :D Thanks for the great "recipe", for the pedicure!

My feet were in the mood to be treated like a queen's tonight and I just knew this was the recipe for them:) I'm so glad I made the right choice because right now, I'm feeling just like a Queen:) My feet feel so soft, smooth, clean and smell so good, you'd want to kiss them:))Now about the substitutions and additions I made to the recipe. I used rose essential oil as a substitute for the peppermint extract{personal preference and the mood for roses, I guess!}. In addition to the epsom salts, I used 1 tbsp.{i.e., 1 capful} of Lavender bath salts{something which I'd bought 3 months back and had been dying to try!} I also scrubbed my feet with Freeman Simplified Beauty Bare Foot Creamy Pumice Foot Scrub after soaking them for about 25 minutes in hot water. Felt absolutely awesome. I finished this foot soak by massaging some Freeman Simplified Beauty Bare Foot Invigorating Peppermint and Plum Softening Foot Lotion into my feet. After having enjoyed this tonight, I think I am addicted to this non-food recipe;). This recipe was also appreciated by my brother{believe it or not!} who forced me to open the door to my room and decided to be my guest and use my Con Air Pedicure Bath to soak his feet. LOL. Well I told him now he was going to be my sister:)) He enjoyed the foot bath alot{Note: He has the BEST feet in our family- angel feet is what we all think he has- they are soft as cotton, smooth and very clean, surprisingly, always!}. He thanks you too for the wonderful end to his day. Thanks from me too!
