Treat yourself to a 20 minute foot soak and leg massage.
Try the following blend to relax and relieve the tired feeling you have in your legs. This blend will also help if your feet tend to swell also.
Add the following oils to a basin or tub of warm water. Be sure to add some Epson salts or other bath salt to help with the swelling too!
