Sore toes? Dip your feet in chocolate | (UPI) -- Strange as it may sound, a leading spa says soaking your feet in a bath made of chocolate can do myriad wonders.

According to, a New York City spa -- Just Calm Down, A Jewel of a Spa -- has come up with a recipe for a foot-soaking bath that relies heavily on the healing powers of lactic acid, long thought to be a skin softener. Remember the movie stars' penchant for taking costly milk baths?

A chocolate foot soak is made from the following ingredients:

-- 8 tablespoons of cocoa powder
-- 6 tablespoons of powdered milk
-- 4 drops of cinnamon essential oil
-- 4 drops of peppermint essential oil
-- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
-- 8 large marshmallows
-- 20 chocolate kisses. (The spa recommends that 21 be used, but one is saved for snacking.)

-- Enough warm water to cover to the ankles.

After mixing the ingredients, except for the kisses, soak in the mouse-like mess then drop in the chocolate kisses and use them as a lumpy massager.

Scrubbing with 1 cup of sugar mixed with half a cup of olive oil is the capper.

Makes you wonder what Dr. Scholl's might have in the wings.
