Herbal Foot Soak
A Treat For Your Feet
This morning I woke up with soft happy feet. The reason for my delighted digits? An herbal foot soak at Queenpin Family Wellness. It takes a lot for me to sit still for an hour but I find that I am always refreshed when I find an excuse to do it. What better excuse than to soak my toes in a bath of Tibetan herbs.

A foot soak is not the same as a pedicure. This herbal soak is designed for relaxation, pain relief and increased circulation which should result in improved sleep. If you are looking for pretty toes have a pedi. If you are in need of a little quiet time to relax your tootsies then give yourself the gift of an herbal foot soak. Sometimes doing a little bit of nothing is exactly what is needed to reboot.
“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
This event takes place the last Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. at the Haven on 5th.
The process is by design very simple. Sit in a comfy chair. A tub of hot water is provided for you (a thermometer is placed in the tub so that the perfect temperature can be achieved before sticking our toes in the water). The water is infused with extra-large herbal teabags full of Tibetan herbs. When I asked Alex Watkins, LAc, one of the hosts of the event what her favorite herb was in the soak she responded, “Oh my, that’s like asking me which one is my favorite child.” She did say that she is partial to Rhodiola Tibetica as a favorite herb in the soak because “it has a positive effect on mood as it helps to ease physical pain”. Light snacks, wine and tea are provided for your enjoyment.
After a bit your feet will tingle a little as a result of the herbs stimulating your circulation. Your shoulders will drop, your eyes may close…complete relaxation.
My tootsies thanked me for days after my foot soak but I wanted to find a way to make them feel good in between soaks so I found Savannah Bee Heel Balm. This stuff is the Balm! I roll it on my feet before bed (elbows too!) and my heels always feel soft and subtle.
