Summer is in full force around our house AND I’m squeezing in work while both kids are home with me. Some evenings I’m so exhausted that all I want to do is take a nice relaxing bath before bed; but our tub is out of commission at the moment. I’m so glad my youngest saw a commercial for a kids play foot spa because it reminded me that I had one stored away in my closet. Earlier this week after a very stressful day we dusted it off and I decided to introduce my 5 yr old to the world of at home foot spa treatments! I mean, who doesn’t love a bubbling hot water soak on their tired achy feet?
I wasn’t sure how relaxing this was going to actually be with my 5 yr old but we gave it a try. I anticipated that she wouldn’t sit still long and for the water to be all over the floor, so I prepped our area with a few towels to protect the floors. I filled the tub up with hot water and a few pumps of Earth Mama Angel Baby Calming Lavender shampoo and body wash. That’s all you need! There was just enough body wash (pure castille soap) to help remove any dirt we had acquired between our toes during the day. The organic lavender and vanilla essential oils provided a soothing scent and left our feet feeling extra smooth. She soaked off-and-on for about 10 minutes before she was bored and ready to go play. She did sit still long enough afterwards for me to dry her feet and massage in a little Earth Mama Bottom Balm.
She made a short video just for fun:

Then it was my turn! I quickly locked the door and laid on the floor while my feet soaked! It was so quiet and so relaxing that I just wanted to go to sleep, but it was only 6pm so that wasn’t happening. I did enjoy about 15-20 minutes to myself while my feet soaked. The Bottom Balm left my legs and feet so smooth and soft. Ahhhh….it was like angels had kissed my feet!

Girl, this sounds sooo relaxing! We love the body wash for my 1 year old, but never thought to use in a foot bath. Now I know what my weekend project is. 🙂
