Relaxing Foot or Bath Soak ~ Easy Peasy Life Matters


Let’s face it… Everyone needs a little TLC now and then! We love to look for little things that help in a big way. This Relaxing Foot or Bath Soak is totally one of the best we have tried!
We have found that the Epsom salt helps us relax, de-stress and fall asleep better at night. The baking soda helps to soften our skin.

Relaxing Foot or Bath Soak


  • 2 cups Epsom salt
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 2 heaping Tbs. chamomile
  • 2 heaping Tbs. lavender flowers
  • 2 Tbs. plantain
  • 2 Tbs. passion flower
  • 2 Tbs. hops
  • 1 Tbs. powdered ginger (optional, ginger is very warming- it will warm you up and detoxify)


Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and shake well. Store with a tight lid.
To use, add ¼ cup to very warm water (careful to not get burned!) and soak your feet to blissful relaxation! Or add 1 cup to a bath and soak.

We have found it’s best to use a glass or enamel bowl. Plastic or metal will work too but they aren’t ideal. We were able to find a large enamel dish washing type pan that would be used when camping.

Give it a try and let us know if you prefer it as a foot soak or a bath! We would love to hear about it 🙂

    Hi, love your site! Can this be made in advance for Christmas gifts or, does it have to be refrigerated? Thank you.

      Thank you so much! We are so glad you stopped by 🙂 As long as it is stored in an air tight jar you should be able to keep it for at least 7-8 months. Best of luck with the Christmas preparations!
