I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar in August 2006. I haven't tried the recipe, but I hope to very soon. Here is what the original poster said about this recipe: "A great foot soother with natural, antisceptic qualities! A great stress reliever, too!"


  1. Mix 1-cup of honey to 1 gallon of warm water and soak for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Rinse your feet with tepid to cool water, dry and moisturize.
  3. Always be sure to dry your feet thoroughly (between toes) with a clean, cotton towel.
  4. Notes:.
  5. Honey is one of Nature's antiseptics with a silky, soothing quality.
  6. This is a great use for the old, crusty honey that may be way in the back of the closet.
  7. Walk on, walk strong!

Thank You Very Much for sharing this incredible foot soak that made my feet feel soft as silk! I really enjoyed soaking my feet in this. Not only was this easy to prepare, but the ingredients are just two, and both are so easy to avail. I got a free bottle of Australian Pure Honey at the supermarket the other day, and I'd been very stressed as of late. This really worked wonderfully on my feet. I've made a batch as a gift for a friend of mine and I'll make one more for my mom. I also appreciate the fact that this is free of chemicals(Thank You, Mother Nature!) and so very cheap! I enjoyed a dream sleep after the soak:) These kind of simple homemade wonderful recipes always amaze me:-) Thanks again for making my day!

I viewed this recipe one evening after googling footsoak, not thinking to try Zaar first. I was very sceptical at what a cup of honey in a bowl of water could do for my extremely sore, aching rheumatoid feet. well I sat with them in the soak for well over the 15 minutes possibly more like 45 and my feet felt so much better, to be honest I couldn't quite believe it. It has prompted me to look further into the therapeutic properties of honey. Thanks so much for taking the time to post it - it's easy, cheap and works!

This is an okay recipe, but I'm not sure how effective it is. A plus for it though, is that it is very easy to make ;)
