Flip Flop Spa

This is a really ingenious idea (wish I had thought of it) that you can give to the women who never seem to have time for a pedicure. This kit will do almost everything but polish your toenails. It comes in a shoebox with a pair of flip- flops, three different inner pads, a disinfectant spray and a bottle of essential oils.

The inner pads stick to the bottom with velcro, which does take some elbow grease to take off, but once you get the hang of it they can be easily removed. The first sole is for cleansing the bottom of the foot and you spray the disinfectant on the inner pad. Walk around the house doing whatever you want for ten minutes, then remove these pads and place the exfoliating pads in. They are like a smooth sandpaper but help remove rough skin while you walk for several minutes. After that you change to the final oil pad which is my favorite part. These pads receive thick drops of the essential oils from toe to heel and then you put the flip flops on and bath your feet in them. The oils really made my feet soft and there is no limit to how long you can wear them, and you can add oil for additional moisturizing.
