THERAPEUTIC ORGANIC FOOT SOAKS 

Why is soaking feet beneficial?

Soaking the feet works on the principal that the feet are connected to every part of the body and uses the healing power of water to bring relaxation and draw toxins out of the body through sweat glands in the feet. For simple relaxation and detoxification, soak your feet in a basin of warm water. Add lavender essential oil or lemon juices to refresh, and tea tree oil for fungal infection.  We add them all to your Therapeutic Organic Foot Soak at The Spa On Maxwell.

MILK & HONEY BENEFITS

Gives Smooth Skin. A milk and honey bath leaves your skin supple and soft. The protein and fat content in the milk enriches your bath water and helps exfoliate the skin. The lactic acid present in the milk cleans the dead cells and hydrates the skin, thereby preventing dryness.  

The lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid, which helps cleanse the skin and release dead skin cells. That allows the skin to rejuvenate itself more quickly, resulting in radiantly glowing, satiny smooth and soft skin.

Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey with added lavender and rose.

 Cleopatra is legendary for many things—she was the last pharaoh of ancient Egypt, she was smart and stunningly beautiful.  She was known for her beautiful skin.  Cleopatra reportedly used milk for her baths, and it's believed she added honey and lavender to the milk, with scattered rose petals floating in her bath.
