Sometimes paying for a pedicure isn’t in the budget or you simply don’t have the time. There are home pedicure kits in dollar tree and most stores but to really get your feet free of the dead skin try this recipe
- warm water
All recipes Ive found say mix 1/2 cup listerine, 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup warm water (1 cup in Naturally Nourishing recipe) , soak 10 minutes then scrub and dry off. If you don’t think there is enough liquid to get an effective pedicure double the ingredients and experiment.
Taking a hot relaxing bath is the cure to any weekday blues. Just add in some home made bath salts to enjoy the soak and transport you to another place. To make any scent the base ingredients are
- mineral and sea salt
Kristanlynn.com features an easy recipe using extract instead of oil but depending on the scent you want to make you can use either. By mixing the oil and salts the scent will be absorbed. The easy instructions from above also indicate food coloring can be used to change the appearance of the salts.
