Self-care is taking care of your entire self – also the things you might tend to forget about sometimes; your feet! I can recommend taking an epsom salt footbath once in a while 💕✨
Why not use the weekend taking a relaxing footbath? We often remember to take care of our face, body, hair, nails etc. but we very often tend to forget to take good care of the feet that carry us around all day. So hereby a little reminder to you – and to myself – to take good care of your feet.
A little easy recipe for a delicious footbath is to use epsom salt in it! You can also add in some good oils, fx apricot or sweet almond oil, or some calming herbs like lavender, chamomile or calendula.
Why Epsom salt?
Epsom salt is a magnesiumsulfat, which has a calming effect on your nervous system, and it makes your muscles relax. Epsom salt is also softening and moisturising for your skin, and it can help reduce swelling.
Just remember to sit for at least 15-20 minutes with your footbath, as that is what it takes before your body has absorbed the magnesium from the water.
You can take while having your feet in the bath to just sit and fully relax, drink a cup of tea, read a good book or watch a good movie.
Are you good at taking care of your feet? Or perhaps this was a reminder for you to take extra good care of them this weekend 💕✨
