All you need are 1 dozen or so smooth stones. You can find them at your local nursery, even Walmart has them in the craft and candle section.
A large, shallow bowl ~ big enough for both the stones and your feet.
Very warm water and 2 drops each of Lavender and Cypress (flower petals optional, but nice!)
Now, roll the soles of your feet slowly over the pebbles for a few minutes. Bliss!
When you consider the science of Reflexology, a simple remedy such as the stone foot massage will not only relieve swelling, it will benefit many other areas of your body as well ~ don't you just love DIY, multi-tasking beauty treatments?
