Home Remedy for Growing Pains

A young friend of mine visited on Thursday night for some fun. She learned how to make vegetable dip and sauté mushrooms. After dinner, she said her feet and calves hurt due to growing pains. So, together we came up with a recipe for growing pains...

We thoroughly cleaned a deep bucket. In it, we added one cup of Epsom salts, 5 drops of lavender essential oil, 3 drops of lemongrass essential oil, and 2 drops of basil essential oil. We mixed this up well, and then we filled the bucket with warm water.

She soaked her feet and we read a fairy story together. Within a matter of minutes her legs felt much better. (At the end, we had best smelling bucket, too.) If you don't have essential oils, the Epsom salt will work by itself, too.
