As a busy mum, I don’t take a lot of time to pamper myself. Which sucks. Pampering is good.
I was recently sent an awesome pamper pack thanks to Porter Novelli and Paul’s Milk. containing: Milk, chocolate, chocolate milkshake syrup, cocoa, essential oils, honey, salts, cups, milkshake glasses, nail polish and a novel. Noice!!
I soaked my feet in the milk – at their suggestion – It was divine! I have decided I’m going to do this on a regular basis.
My cat was very confused, and a little bit upset and then she became rather angry when I tipped the used foot soak milk down the drain.
I also had a chocolate milkshake while I soaked my feet. The cat didn’t mind that so much.
I was nice enough to give the cat some milk too. She forgave me, but still thinks I’m crazy for bathing my feet in the drink she loves so much.
|Azrael: Hey crazy lady, WTF?
Here’s the divine foot soak recipe if you would like to try it yourself:
2 Cups Paul’s Full Cream Milk
2 tablespoons Almond Oil
2 tablespoons Epsom Salt
3 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
7 cups Water
1) Heat the water and milk in a large pan on the stove until it’s just steaming. The mixture should be as hot as possible to still be comfortable enough to soak your feet.
2) Still in the pan, stir in the almond oil, salt and peppermint oil and mix until the salt has dissolved in the warm liquid
3) Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl or tub large enough to fit both of your feet at once and soak for 10-15 minutes
4) Rinse, dry and apply a nourishing lotion to your feet to complete the pampering experience.
Why did I get this lovely hamper?
Paul’s Milk, have changed their packaging. The new tetra-pak, the Tetra Brik Edge, has a square shape with a slanted top and a larger spout with a twisty turny easy to open lid. The large spout takes a bit of getting used to as the milk comes out a lot quicker.
I personally prefer the narrower oblong shaped cartons because I have tiny hands, but the twisty turny easy to open lid is very easy to open. Much better than those pull tabs on other milks.
The easy openess was the reason that the Tetra Brik Edge won the the Package of the year accreditation by the Swedish Rheumatism Association.
It’s also environmentally friendly. The carton is made from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources.
What I like most of all is that to celebrate this new packaging innovation, they sent me an awesome hamper of goodies. I think more companies should change their packaging to environmentally friendly, twisty turny openy lidded packs.
