To make a basic salt bath, bring a large pan or half a bucket of water to boil. Once it has boiled, let it cool down until it is a comfortable temperature. Add ½ cup Epsom or sea salt and let it dissolve completely. Soak feet until the water is no longer hot.

For a peppermint soak, omit the salt and sandalwood oil and instead add three to four drops of peppermint essential oil, a single drop of eucalyptus essential oil and a single drop of lemon essential oil. Soak feet until the water is no longer hot.
