Candy cane foot soak

Candy cane foot soak

Our feet work so hard and tirelessly every day to get us from place to place, we often forget that without them we would not be able to do so many things in one day.

For Christmas it would be great to give them a rest and reward them for all of their hard work over the crazy Christmas period.

After running around getting ready for Christmas day, soothe your tired and aching feet by soaking them in this divine candy cane foot soak.  Not only does it smell amazing, but as you put your feet up and relax with a cuppa this wonderful foot soak will be working hard to restore your tired and aching feet.

This is also a great Christmas gift.  My kids enjoyed making this foot soak with me and have already claimed some for themselves 🙂
