Soak your soles
via Healthy Lifestyles & Spas - A Soak for the Soles
From ancient times, when weary travelers were greeted at their destination with a warm foot bath, to modern spas that commence full body treatments with a relaxing foot soak, this humble ritual has survived the ages. Both nurturing and practical, the footbath was a way to prevent soil from entering the home, while honoring and acknowledging your guest's journey. In some cultures, a foot wash was also given to clear all negative energy, stress, and anxiety before crossing the threshold.
