Women all over will relate to this: after a long, hard day at work, it’s not the back or the legs that has taken the biggest beating; it’s the feet. After countless hours of standing on your feet (especially if they’re stuffed in tight shoes), there’s nothing better than letting them soak in a warm, soothing foot bath.
However, most people don’t have the time, money, or energy to be able to visit a foot spa. If you’re one of the these people, try these great recipes for creating your own foot spa at home!
