How to make a Lavender Foot Bath!

These foot baths are good for all kinds of healing...Mind, Tired Body & Spirit.

We especially love them at school after a hop in the mud or the sandbox, on a day when it's a bit chilly still.
We take our red basins and fill with very arm water (test it, of course!) and add about 3-5 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. We love Aura Cacia's Lavender Essential Oil, it's affordable and has a great scent.
We let the children help carry out the footbaths to the back porch and give a good soak.
This is also wonderful for soaking splinters and we even gave the mother's at our school footbaths for Mother's Day.
It is great to have handy:
A plastic or galvanized metal bin
Hot water
Essential Oils
A hand towel for drying
A small chair for sitting and soaking in the love!

(In winter we love to add peppermint and chamomile)

Let me know how your footbaths turn out!
