This aromatic and warming ginger and juniper foot soak improves the circulation and removes the chill from cold feet. Ginger has traditionally been used for its warming action, while juniper is stimulating and cloves have some pain-relieving properties. The aromatic bay leaves and orange peel in this therapeutic combination also improve your mood as the foot soak takes effect.
