Pamper Your Peds

Walk confidently with these herbal foot care recipes.

Happy Feet Recipes:

Going barefoot is one of the simple joys of summer. Beach sand, grassy fields and warm garden earth all feel better between bare toes. But toward the end of the summer, your feet may show signs of your summer fun. Hiding them in socks and sneakers is not your only option.

The word pedicure means “caring for the feet.” Not many of us find time for regular foot care. Pampering your feet will not only make them look better, it also will make you feel better. Abraham Lincoln once said, “If my feet hurt, I can’t think.”

1. Soak your feet for 15 to 20 minutes in comfortably warm water with some Epsom or sea salts added. Use a nailbrush and clean under each toe nail. Use a wet pumice stone or exfoliating scrub — try cornmeal, ground almonds, clean beach sand or our Pumice Foot Scrub to gently rub away hard skin on your feet.

2. Trim your toenails after soaking them. (It is easier to do after the soak, and you will get a cleaner cut.) Cut straight across to avoid painful ingrown nails.
