Easy DIY Foot Tea for Runners

A cup of tea for your feet perhaps?

Yes, it's a bit silly and may sound like a joke, but adding selected herbs to a foot bath will freshen, cleanse, soothe, and even help deodorise.

Does it sound more like something you want to try now?

In the Bag

If you're not a fan of picking bits of soggy herb from between your toes after a relaxing foot bath, then pop your herbal blend into a teabag.

See where I came up with the term 'foot tea'?

OK, let's make some!

What to Select

You can choose between any number of dried herbs for a foot soothing blend. This particular combination was made special as a little extra gift tucked into an order from a regular client who I just happen to know is a habitual jogger.

Here are the ingredients I used

  • Peppermint
  • Sage
  • Horsetail
  • Lavender 


Mix all ingredients and place into tea bags that can be tied shut tightly.

Here's how the final package looked for my client – enough for 4 soaks.

Do Tell
