Chamomile foot soak is a wonderful DIY to pamper and soothe your feet. This homemade stress reliever is super easy and inexpensive to make and is also a perfect gift idea.
How To Make Chamomile Foot Soak DIY
Dry, tired feet are no fun….not to mention not very pretty! One thing that perks them up is relaxing in a basin of Chamomile Foot Soak. After months of flip flops, I find my feet dry and cracked at the end of summer. The combination of chamomile, milk and epsom salt takes all that away in no time at all. The chamomile helps to relive puffiness and just the scent of it made me relax. I even brewed a cup for myself to sip and enjoy!
If I want to feel rejuvenated, I use my Peppermint Foot Soak.
Another thing this DIY is great for…gifts! This is the simplest DIY that can be made in less than 5 minutes and costs only pennies to make. Wouldn’t this be a great gift for mom or grandma??

What a nice way to end the day and soothe tired, rough feet.
Add approximately 1/2 cup of the Chamomile Foot Soak to a basin of warm water, tune out all distractions, and soak your feet for 20 minutes. You will feel refreshed and your feet will thank you! Dry feet thoroughly, then moisturize with your favorite lotion. Put on a pair of comfy socks and relax!
