Relaxing Foot-Bath Gift Basket 

Give the gift of relaxation with this fun gift basket! This gift-basket
contains everything needed for a truly relaxing foot-bath. 

Materials Needed:
  1. 4-Dram Vials with Dropper Caps: These small vials allow you to quickly blend the relaxing oil mixture and dispense it into the foot bath. Each vial holds 3 teaspoons, or 15 ml of the mixture.
  2. Carrier Oil Such as Almond or Jojoba Oil: These oils can be found at many grocery stores, or natural product stores.
  3. Essential Oils: You will need 40-50 drops of your desired essential oil or blend for this recipe.
  4. Basin: Include a basin large enough to hold two feet. It can be made of any material that can hold water.
  5. Small Smooth River Rocks: These can be easily found at many craft or floral supply shops. If you gather rocks yourself, be certain to clean and purify them well.
  6. Basket (optional): Add a fun touch by placing all of the above items in a basket large enough to hold everything.  
  1. To create the essential oil foot bath solution, place between 40 & 50 drops of your desired essential oil or blend in a 4-Dram Dropper Vial. Fill the remainder of the vial 3/4 of the way full with your chosen carrier oil. Fill additional vials if desired in the same manner with different essential oils or blends.
  2. Place labels or gift-tags on each vial of essential oil solution to identify the contents.
  3. Arrange the river rocks, basin, and vials of essential oil solution in the gift basket.
  4. To use the foot bath, place the decorative rocks in the basin. Fill the basin 1/2 to 2/3 of the way full with warm water. Add 2-4 droppers full of the essential oil solution to the water. Place both feet in the water and let soak for 15 minutes. Move feet over or through smooth river rocks as desired to help enhance relaxation.

Extra Ideas:
  • Add several vials of different types of oils to the gift basket for people to try using.
    • For a more relaxing bath, try lavender, chamomile, geranium, clary sage, or sandalwood (I also like 40 drops spearmint blended with 5 drops eucalyptus).
    • For a more invigorating bath, try cypress, fir, juniper, lemon, nutmeg, orange, grapefruit or peppermint.
    • For a romantic bath, try rose, jasmine, clary sage, geranium, rosewood, or ylang ylang.
