2-4 drops lavender oil or scent of choice
In a plastic tub, run hot water to fill. Add soda, salt, oil and mix. Soak feet for 15-20 minutes. While feet are still in the water, use a good quality foot file or pumice stone - massage feet to remove rough skin and calluses. Rinse feet, pat dry, moisturize.
