9c — Making a Foot Soak

Saying Thank You Without Words —

handmades-soak oneshetwosheHow soothing it must have felt when the weeping woman washed Jesus’ feet with her hair and tears and massaged them with the expensive fragrant oil. What a loving thing to do!

Whereas her act also included worship, it would not be inappropriate to follow her example of loving service by preparing a foot soak for others.

Here is a link with instructions by Sosae for making your own Peppermint and Lemon Hand Made Foot Soak — a soothing, fragrant gift for someone to whom you’d like to say “Thank You.”

Below is the list of ingredients you will need for making 2 cups. (This yields four 1/2 cup portions).

1 cup sea salt or Kosher salt
1 cup Epsom salt
2 Tbsp 100% peppermint tea leaves (not flavored)
4 tsp pure peppermint extract
3 tsp pure lemon extract
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
Jars or bags, labels, string

My Prayer

Dearest Father, What a privilege to follow the example of the weeping woman in Luke 7 and prepare a soothing, fragrant gift for another. Please guide me to the person who needs this gift of love. Amen.
