Starting the New Year off right can be as simple as an epsom salt bath for your feet. Epsom salt for feet is a refreshing, comforting, and rejuvenating take on self-care, and one that anyone can participate in even when you believe your schedule doesn’t allow for much. 

Why Soak Your Feet? 

Think about how much walking you did today. Now think about how much you were on your feet yesterday, the day before, or the day before that. Your feet are always on the go; tasked with the job of carrying your entire body. Soaking your feet is giving some much needed comfort to a part of your body that you rely on all the time and without often realizing it. 

The New Year is all about refreshment and starting new, so an epsom salt bath is the perfect way to represent for yourself that in a concrete and positive way. You’re soaking away the busyness of the holiday season and you’re giving your feet a clean slate they can enjoy in comfort and soothing.

Epsom salt for feet can be used in a standard tub, or for those who do not have a standard tub or who prefer a little more flexibility with their soak, a foot soaking basin. They can be used to soak or exfoliate the feet, and with all-natural essential oils can be enjoyed as an aromatherapy session as well. While your feet may be the only part soaking, it’s your whole body that really feels the difference. 

Matching Your Soak To Your New Year Mood 

Everyone approaches the New Year differently. For some it’s a time to relax and reflect and think back on everything one has achieved during the previous year. For others, it’s a celebration of what’s to come. Regardless of how you like the celebrate the ending of one year and the beginning of the next, there is an epsom salt foot soak to perfectly match your mood. Some ideas include: 

  • Circulation Foot Soak – Circulation Foot Soak uses USP grade epsom salt, fractionated MCT coconut oil, Vitamin E oil, Vitamin C crystals, and essential oils of all-natural cypress, ginger, eucalyptus, and lavender. In terms of aroma, this is a blend that is equal parts soothing and comforting as it is zingy and energizing. Fresh cypress is reminiscent of crisp outdoor air, eucalyptus is cool and invigorating, ginger is warm and cozy, and lavender immediately brings feelings of deep relaxation. For the person who likes to think back on what was, look forward to what is going to be, and practice a bit of self-care at the same time, Circulation is the ideal soak.

  • Lilliuma Relaxify Foot – The start of the New Year comes on the heels of one of the busiest times of the year for many. If the New Year holiday is one that you use to relax, revive, and step back to take a deep breath, Lilliuma Relaxify Foot is perfect. This blend uses Mediterranean Sea salt, fractionated MCT coconut oil, Vitamin E oil and natural essential oils of lavender, frankincense, and chamomile. Frankincense works to ground the blend, while the aromas of lavender and chamomile wrap the senses up in comforting feelings of deep relaxation.
  • Detox Foot Soak – USP grade epsom salt, fractionated MCT coconut oil, Vitamin E oil, Vitamin C crystals, and essential oils of lemon, peppermint, frankincense, and lavender meld together in the Detox Foot Soak.

Grounding the soak is frankincense with the comforting note of lavender floating just above the surface. Like a spa in your own bathroom, Detox Foot Soak is made to wash away the events of the day to form a perfectly clean slate in your soak. 

Build Your Perfect Soak 

Building your perfect soak takes only three things – your chosen epsom salt blend, a tub to soak in, and warm water. Once you have your chosen foot soaking blend, fill your tub or soaking basin with enough warm water to cover your feet up to the ankle. After your water has been drawn, add in 1 to 2 tablespoons of your chosen soak to the water, agitating slightly to make sure all salt has dissolved. If you’re new to foot soaking, start slow with 1 tablespoon and work your way up to 2 as you get acquainted with how you like your soak. Once your soak is ready, sit, relax, and enjoy the feeling of the warm soak as aromatherapy envelops your senses. A foot soak only takes around 15 to 20 minutes to enjoy the full soothing effects. 

Foot soaking isn’t a fad, it’s an ancient practice in self-care. With an epsom salt bath for the feet, anyone can be sure that they’re starting the New Year by putting their best foot forward.
