place a large enough tub, preferably plastic, and fill it up half way with filtered warm water. Add Epsom salt, rose petals and scented oil. as a suggestion, olive oil and pepper mint oils are my favorites. Soak one feet at a time for 10 minutes. Do this at a place where you can sip on a glass of wine with dimmed lights and candles, while playing a mellow music to get the spa-like tranquil experience.
After the 10 minute soaking, wrap your wet foot in towel and place the other in the tub for soaking. While the other is soaking, use pumice stone or file to remove dead skin and calluses from the bottom of your foot carefully and massage every toe and muscle. Do the same with other feet and soak them both back in the tub for another five minute.
Dry your feet and between the toes by damping. most people rub the towel on their skin. Our skin is delicate and very sensitive. Dry up between the toes to avoid achy feeling and fungus.
