HONEY....A TREAT FOR YOUR FEET....



Hey fabulous naturals!

As you know our feet are a very important part of our body.  So why not take excellent care of them.  I love to pamper my feet and do so as much as I can.  We know that some of us rave about the wonders of honey for our hair.  Well, honey is also just as great for our feet.  We can use honey in our pedicures which helps in elimination of accumulated toxins and help in make our feet feel alive!  There are many ways you can use honey in your natural pedicures below I will share a recipe that I found and have been using on my feet for quite some time ( I don't know why I haven't shared this earlier :(

When choosing your honey try your very best to use organic honey.  I am not sure of what the results are if you use non organic honey.  But , hey if that's what you have on hand.  Try it , and see how it works for this recipe.  Now , lets get started...

YOU WILL NEED:

2 black tea bags
1 Teaspoon of honey
1 Teaspoon of lemon
And a bucket full of hot- warm water
Pumice stone

Allow your feet to soak in this mixture for about 15-20 minutes.  Grab a book, a cup of tea, sit back and allow your feet to go to work.  After, your time is up your skin should be nice and soft and ready to be free of any excess skin that may have been there.  Here's where your pumice stone comes in , you will use this to get rid of all or any dead skin you may have.

NOW MOISTURIZE:

2 Tablespoons of honey
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil, sweet almond oil , or even jojoba oil.

Mix, mix, mix into a bowl.  Rub it generously on to your feet and keep it on for 20-30 minutes.  It's a perfect time to pick that book back up, sip another cup of tea, etc.  Tip: I usually put a pair of old socks on my feet at this point or wrap saran wrap around my feet, the results are great! After, your 20-30 minute's is up rinse your feet with warm soapy water.

And ENJOY!

Thanks for reading and remember stay naturally fabulous.
