Paying attention to your feet is pretty important for most of us – a good majority of us are on our feet all day.
Not only that, those of us in Arizona usually walk around in Flip Flops every day – since our weather is pretty nice all year long, it’s a given – our feet get rough and dry on the heels.
At least mine do.
Soaks and scrubs are a great way to protect your feet and thankfully, you don’t have to go anywhere to buy soaks or scrubs. You can open up your pantry and whip up an easy scrub with ingredients on your shelf.
Rosemary and Panaway is one of the best combinations for relaxing the feet.
Panaway: contains wintergreen, helichrysum, clove, and peppermint. It supports healthy circulation to accelerate healing, helps support healthy muscles, and supports healing.
Rosemary: has a woody, evergreen like scent that is part of the mint family. It’s a wonderful way to support minor muscle aches and pains, and digestive issues, as well as improve memory.
Epsom Salt: great for sore muscles and achy feet and provides the body with magnesium.
Optional: Add 1/4 C. Baking Soda: which can help cleanse the body from toxins.
Combine both with Epsom salt for a wonderful foot soak –
Rosemary Panaway Foot Soak
- 10 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
- 10 drops Panaway Essential Oil
- 1 C. Epsom Salt

To make: Combine the essential oil with the epsom salt in a stainless steel or glass bowl and mix well to combine. Pour into glass jar and apply lid. To use, add to hot water to soak feet (I usually soak mine for 20-30 minutes while I watch one full television show).
Did you know that your feet are home to some of the largest pores on our body – therefore, it’s important to make sure you are using ingredients that are pure, unadulterated oils.

How much of this do you add to your “pan” of water? Or do you use all of it. If using all, I’m not sure why you would put it in a jar.
1/2 Cup per foot soak is enough for 1 use. I love using jars because it allows me to gift, not to mention it’s multi-use and allows me to use over the course of time.

How much to you add to your foot soak?
Hi Mary, I usually use 1/2 C. (the recipe makes enough for 2 soaks).
