Soothing Milk Bath

Pour 3-4 cups milk into microwave-safe container. Use as much milk as needed to cover your feet. Heat until milk is slightly warmed but still comfortable to touch, 1 1/2-2 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp. honey and 1 tsp. vanilla extract; gently whisk until combined. Pour warm milk into container large enough for both feet. Submerge your feet in mixture; let soak for 5 minutes. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. baking soda over your feet, gently scrubbing rough patches of skin. Let feet soak for an additional 5-10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. If desired, use a pumice stone to buff away dead skin. Apply moisturizing lotion to feet. Make one foot bath.
