Feet care time! =)
This would be my very first post on feet care; to be honest I am not an avid fan of pampering my feet I do not know why but if I know I walked long distances and did a lot of heavy duty carrying of camera equipments, tripods and lights I should take care of my feet because these are the ones being beaten up the most.
I love using Earth Therapeutics Tea Tree Oil Foot Soak, my mother bought this at Beauty Bar in Mall of Asia for Php475. Initially this is my father's foot soak when he was having his foot spa phase (but now he just goes to Del Monte area in Quezon City for his favorite Thai foot reflexology); he bought the Watson's bubble jet foot spa unit and my mother wanted to get him some foot soak. We looked at The Body Shop and the foot soak costs Php800+ so we looked for another alternative.
Now that nobody is using this except me, I learn to appreciate taking care of our feet more. Even right now as I am writing I am tempted to pamper my feet...
Okay now I am back and I am soaking my feet in the bubble jet foot spa filled with warm water and a spoonful of Earth Therapeutics Tea Tree Oil Foot Soak.
Here is how the foot soak looks like, the foot soak is actually made up of Dead Sea Salt
What Earth Therapeutics Say:
A soothing, therapeutic soak for tired, aching feet. This natural herbal blend contains the antiseptic, deodorizing, and healing properties of natural Tea Tree Oil to condition feet. Wild mint stimulates blood circulation to refresh and revive. Mineral salts help to soften rough calluses. Feet look and feel soft, clean and healthy.
I must admit the claim are true. It does help make your footsies relax and release the stress it has endured during the day; of course it comes with the big help of warm water and bubble jet foot spa.
I like that it helps to kill the bacteria and remove dirt on my feet because even if I take a shower I am pretty sure not all of the dirt and grime are removed. After 30 minutes my feet feels very soft and it is quite easy to remove calluses. The foot soak has a hint of mint that you can smell and this double as aromatherapy in my opinion. This contains peppermint oil, spearmint oil, rosemary and chamomile.
Once you're done and when you see the basin, the water will turn quite dirty and it is a sign that it works; it does remove the dirt and grime on your feet. According to the ingredients listed, Earth Therapeutics Tea Tree Oil Foot Soak is using Australian Tea Tree oil.
Am I parroting the claims? I must say this lives up to its claims!
Just make sure not to store this for a long period of time because the Dead Sea salts dissolve and it becomes liquid.
