Lavender Foot Soak

Today I'm sharing with you a recipe to make a wonderful foot soak.  I don't know about you, but this time of year I spend a lot of time in the garden-- and working outside.  My feet get looking & feeling horrible!!   I had gotten a few Graduation announcements from some darling girls I know.... and so when I was soaking my feet the other night I thought  " I bet they would LOVE some of this Lavender Foot Soak too.    I made a batch of it up and glued together some cute jars & candle sticks I had--   and this is what I came up with.  They are the perfect gift to give & to get!!!

It's very easy to make, but I admit I am always changing or adding different things to it, depending on what I have on hand- but this is the basic recipe.

2 Cups of Epsom salt
2 Cups of sea salt
1/2 Cup of Baking Soda
1/2 Cup of Ground up Rolled Oats ( put it in the blender until it is fine like flour)
10 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil
A few sprigs of dried Lavender (crush them up)
Mix everything together really well and put into a cute jar.

To use:
Add 2 Tablespoons to warm water & you have a WONDERFUL treat for tired sore feet.
