Feet are important, yet the most neglected part of our body. It takes us to beautiful places but unlike our face and the other parts of the body, it doesn’t receive the much-needed love it deserves.
For instance, when it comes to skincare, we put so much attention on our face but the feet rarely receive moisturizing.
If you’re guilty, don’t worry. You are not alone!
I do a lot of walking, movement, and standing but the only time I indulge in foot care is when my feet are too tired or sore. That’s why today, as part of my self-love journey, I’ll pay attention to every single part and that includes the last toe.
In this post, I’ll share with you an herbal foot soak to help the dry, cracking skin on your feet.

Tools And Equipment
Time: 15-20 minutes
Once done, wait for the herbal soak to cool down a bit; otherwise, you can add cold water to bring the herbal foot soak to a safe and ideal temperature.
The lavender used helps the mind to relax while the comfrey coats the skin to relieve dryness. A piece of advice though, avoid using comfrey on broken skin or open wounds.
Personal Tip: I like adding Epsom salt and eucalyptus essential to make the feet soak more soothing!
The epsom salt is an old remedy that has been used for many years to relieve muscle pain. It produces magnesium that helps the skin and the muscles to relax. Also, in case you didn’t know, it helps reduce stress and stabilizes the mood.
Meanwhile, the eucalyptus reduces inflammation and pain with an added cooling sensation to help muscles and joints relax even more.
