30 Day Challenge - Day 4
Hello! It is my 4th day of having foot baths for the health benefits and there is a lot I want to cover. However I will do a quick post tonight as I still have 26 days to go :)
I wanted to keep my foot baths simple and interesting and get different health benefits from it even though it boosts overall health.
I probably chose not the best time to have a challenge as I am working a lot recently but on the other hand it is helping me to go through it and helping me to test my routine limits and pushing me a little harder to get a little more of my day.
Today I decided to have herbal soak. I kept it very nice and simple I got inspired by Ayurveda. I looked and some herbal soak recipes and in the end I came up with my own. And it was very enjoyable.
This soak turned out very refreshing and smelled great I didn't even need to add any essential oil.
Couple of minuses are that my feet looked a little yellow after using turmeric and I needed to rise parsley afterwards but in general very enjoyable soak!
I chose turmeric for the benefits of improving skin and feet are always overlooked. I used cardamon for its detoxifying and noninflammatory properties and its widely used in Ayurveda. You can reed more about cardamon benefits here. Parsley I used mainly for refreshing feel and scent in this recipe even it has loads more benefits you can reed here.
I will write a little more about Ayurveda and their foot soaks in future blog posts about foot baths.
Thanks for reading
