Tibetan Herbal Footsoaks

REGENERATE, RELAX, REPLENISH

A synergistic combination of sustainably-wildcrafted botanicals, enriched with Tibetan mineral salts that provide the deep healing experience of a high mountain hot spring. They stimulate deep regenerative processes critical for the brain and body.

Soak in the botanical terpenes, volatile oils, and alkaloids from these sacred herbs, which have been used for millennia in the Himalayas to deeply relax, restore and soothe ones journey through life. 

Literally the best quality on Earth, and directly sourced. 

During the foot soak, the herbal ingredients are absorbed through the skin into the blood stream, where they are evenly distributed through the rest of the body. Active ingredients improve blood microcirculation, increase the cells that repair damaged tissue, prevent muscle atrophy, reduce biofilms, and protect and restore the nervous system.

Homecare Instructions

SUPPLIES NEEDED:



 

Steep your feet for 30 minutes, covering your legs with towel or blanket to maintain heat.

As you steep, pay attention to the distribution of heat. Feel for cold areas or blockages in the distribution. Relax to open them to allow the circulation to flow evenly. Enjoy this as an introspective meditation. (keep your phone out of reach!)
 

Add hot water as you become accustomed to it raising the water temperature to 110-115 degrees. This is the ideal temperature for the soak to be most effective.

After around 20-30 minutes you should break a light sweat.

Take your feet out while they are still hot. Dry your feet thoroughly.

Allow the sweat to dry while being careful to avoid drafts or wind exposure.

Used daily for 3 months for arthritis. Used for 3 weeks for hormone balance and digestive disorders. After symptoms are alleviated, and for general wellbeing, continue 1-2 times a week for maintenance and health optimization. 
 


If you're feeling overheated and/or intensely sweating, discontinue your foot soak.
 

Each sachet can be re-used up to 3 times; store in sealed container in refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Avoid doing foot soaks if you are hungry. Avoid doing foot soaks under a draft. Avoid if bleeding heavily during menstruation. Avoid using electronics while doing foot soaks; meditating, resting, reading, or socializing are recommended. If using teabags in a bath, do not recline and submerge your chest in water, stay in an upright seated position. 
 

Similar to a vigorous workout, foot soaks are stimulating if done longer than 20min, therefore if using at night soak for a shorter duration (>20min). Keep your feet warm after your foot soak
