After soaking, you can use some of the sea salt to exfoliate your feet and the lower part of your legs or a pumice stone to remove any rough spots on the heels and toes.

Towel dry feet and moisturize with an all-natural moisturizer like shea butter or coconut oil so as to not put toxins back in the skin. You can even try using my whipped body butter recipe!

    1. it is ceramic and it’s from home sense. I don’t know if its a foot bath, but I thought it made a good prop. It could very well be a salad bowl haha I have small feet 🙂
