Body & Soul: Soothing Foot Soak
By Janice Cox
<p>Baking soda helps deodorize and soften your feet and also causes a fizzing effect when mixed with the vinegar and water. After soaking your feet for at least 10 minutes, use a natural pumice stone to smooth and remove calluses.</p>
<p>• 2 quarts warm water<br />
• 1/4 cup baking soda<br />
• 1/4 cup herbal or white vinegar<br />
• 2 tablespoons fresh herb leaves or flowers</p>
<p>1. Fill a large plastic pan or sink with warm water. Stir in the baking soda, vinegar, fresh herbs and flower petals. The water will fizz and bubble when the soda and vinegar combine. </p>
<p>2. To use: Soak your feet for 15 to 20 minutes. Pat dry and massage them with a rich natural oil or foot cream.</p>
