Get your tootsies ready for sandal season with a relaxing soak!
Foot soaks soothe skin and help reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation.
What to do?
Fill a basin with warm water, 1/2 cup of Epsom salts, and a few drop of your favorite essential oil.
If you have fresh flowers, add some pedals to the warm water.
The coars salts exfoliate dead skin cells and nix inflammation, and the flowers and/or oils add a relaxing scent.
Soak your feet for 30 minutes, then slather on moisturizing coconut oil.

Hint 2: Ease coffee stains with a salty ice scrub
To lift stubborn stains from unofficial kitchen 'appliances' - namely your coffee pot or teapot - add 5 ice cubes, 4 tsp of salt and 1 tbs of white vinegar to carafe.
