  • A soaking container large enough to hold feet and ½ gallon of milk without spilling over
  • ½ gallon Whole Milk I suggest Horizon Organic Milk
  • Rose-scented Essential Oil
  • 1-2 Roses petals removed
  • 1 cup Coarse Gring Cornmeal
  • Coconut Oil
  • Clean Cotton Socks


  1. Warm the Whole Milk on the stove top or in the microwave (probably a job for Dad!). NOTE: The milk should not be boiling but comfortably warm as Mom will soak for about 15 minutes. Pour the milk into the soaking pan/container and add 2-3 drops of Rose-Scented Essential Oil and the rose petals. 

  2. After feet have soaked for 15 minutes, use a handful of dry cornmeal to scrub the feet focusing on any dry skin. Rinse the cornmeal off in the milk bath, and then with clear water from a second container of warm water or with washcloths.

  3. Coat feet with Coconut Oil and dry clean cotton socks to allow the coconut oil to be absorbed.
