Last week, a friend and I attended a birthday party at a hotel in our very own amazing home city of Durham… Durham being the city of steps, hills and cobbles.
We had to do lots of walking and between me being a novice heel wearer and my friend being crippled in her heels, we both, needless to say, were suffering with sore throbby tootsies! I was wearing these, should it be of relevance! Office’s Wham Bam Wedge
Being the weirdo that I am, i’d packed an emergency pair of ballet flats in to my party bag BUT by this time, the old dogs were still barking.
My feet were still knackered the day after and it came to me in a flash (while brushing my teeth i’ll have you know) that i’d read about using Dr. Bronners Peppermint soap as a foot soak for tired toots.
I dug out my bottle of Peppermint soap (read my review of Dr Bronners HERE) and treat my tender trotters to a lovely warm relaxing soak followed by a lovely relaxing massage with a foot lotion.
I know I have found the scent of Dr B’s to be quite overpowering (to my nose) in the past but this totally soothed my senses and set me off for a little disco nap.. which was great as I was suffering with a very rare case of Wine Flu (I don’t drink!).
Here is the feature that I had read that prompted me to try it. I bet the other scents would be divine too for all those upcoming post party blisters and aches!
Treat Your Feet This Party Season
with Dr Bronner’s Magic Peppermint
The Christmas party season is finally upon us and festive sparkle is in the air, your favourite little black dress is out the closet and your highest pair of sky high heels have been dusted off and are waiting to dance the night away… but along with the excitement also comes the dreaded fear of those painful party feet.
We’ve all been there, a night of dancing till dawn leaves our tootsies tired, sore and in need of some serious TLC, but rather than letting your feet suffer in silence this year, why not give them a special Christmas treat with Dr Bronner’s Peppermint range.
Soothe away any aches and pains by soaking your feet in a tingly Dr Bronner’s Peppermint foot bath; add a small amount of peppermint pure castile liquid soap to a bowl of warm water, and let the key active ingredients of organic olive oil, coconut oil and mentha arvensis work their magic.
Once soft and smooth, dry off with a hand towel before applying a generous amount of Dr Bronner’s magic organic peppermint lotion which contains the perfect blend of organic jojoba oil to moisturise the skin, whilst coconut oil aids absorption. Organic hemp and avocado oils ensure feet are left smooth and supple for ultimate comfort. Only the finest organic essential oils are used for fragrance allowing your feet to not only feel great, but smell great too!
Dr. Bronner’s is the No. 1 selling organic soap brand in the USA. They don’t use any synthetic components in their products, and all major ingredients come from certified Fair Trade sources throughout the world.
