Now that the weather is getting nice, tons of ladies are in full force for pedicures.....Cheer's for pedicures!!!!
I looove pedicures I do them year round , it is a MUST that my feet are always done and looking good. I am a stickler about that, From years of experience working in hair salons ( and lets not forget the help of beauty school) I learned how to do pedicures...just as if you've went to the nail salon. Along with a fabulous pedicure comes a good ole fashion foot soaking, and the best thing about this part is if you feel its not time to get an actually pedi. You can simply skip that part and solely focus on soaking and pampering your feet.....and what's even better than that is ...it can all be done in the comfort of your very own home!
One thing I really enjoy adding to my foot bath are Essential oils, while many EO's serve different purpose's. Find one that will suit your needs. Lavender & Peppermint are my favorites. You can use them separately one week using lavender EO the following week or two using peppermint EO. Or you can get super creative and mix them together. Sandalwood and Ylang Ylang oils are said to be favorites as well, along with tea tree Essential oil they all have great soothing effects and lets not forget Eucalyptus and lemon EO'S....all great stuff!
Simple and very easy recipe:
Water ( amount depending on the type of foot bather your using) enough to cover your ankles
2-5 drops of Lavender , peppermint EO ( or Essential Oil of choice)
1/2 cup of Epsom salt ( love that stuff)
Boil the water , allow it to cool down to your liking,
Add Lavender oil ( or oil of choice) along with the Epsom Salt
soak....relax and ...enjoy!
Following the very same steps, however this time skipping the Epsom Salt.
2-5 drops of peppermint
2 drops of Eucalyptus EO and 1 drop of lemon EO
Sit back and relax!
The very best part about DYI pedicures and foot baths are you know where your tools have been, and that they are clean and sanitized.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by, and remember to stay...Naturally Fabulous!
Sit back...Relax...and Enjoy those pedicures!
TAKE CARE !:))
