Though mashing grapes by foot infuses a pleasant undertone of gym sock into wine, the labor of cleansing the aromas and stains overshadows the slight flavor boost. Today's Groupon restores foot mashers to a naturally pristine state: for $25, you get $59 worth of handmade, customized foot-care products and a complimentary foot soak from Naked Body + Bath, a purveyor of all-natural alternatives to chemical-laden latherables.
Naked Body + Bath features a make-your-own approach to podiatry. The cozy Rice Village shop stocks a variety of unscented and uncolored foot-first products such as cremes, scrubs, soaking salts, and sprays that can be customized according to fragrance, color, and add-in preferences. With more than 200 natural oils, 50 essential oils, and an assortment of botanicals, milks, glitters, and micas, blending possibilities are almost infinite.
Combat cracked, dried mudflats with a jar of shea-butter crème ($17), undo calluses with a pumice foot brush ($5), give walking sticks a tingle with a bar of peppermint soap ($8), or soothe even the most wriggly toes with a jar of sea-salt scrub ($27). Naked also keeps record of customers' top recipes, so you can easily replicate your favorite potions during future shopping sprees.
The complimentary "happy feet" foot soaks allow customers to try before they buy, unlike that snooty fishmonger. With customized scents, patrons can create personalized presents for the whole foot-fetishizing family or prevent a mooching roommate from using your shower products by customizing your soap to his or her least-favorite fragrance.
This Groupon is valid for in-store purchases only.
The Houston Chronicle named Naked Body + Bath the Ultimate Place to Pamper the Body in 2007, and its Shop Girl blog also covered the store. KHOU 11 featured Naked Body + Bath, and nine Yelpers gave it five stars.

- The scents aren't overwhelming, and the color scheme is mellow and earthy, with shades of green and brown complementing the space. – Heather Staible, Houston Chronicle
- The quality of essential oils and fragrance oils is excellent, and with over 200 to choose from, the combinations are endless, plus you can add a color, glitter or shimmer to anything. – vajka s., Yelp
Naked Body + Bath
At Naked Body + Bath, customers can pour the bath product of their choice into big brass tubs of warm water before slowly submerging their feet into a fragrant bath. These complimentary foot soaks—lauded by KHOU-11 as “heaven”—are one of many ways Naked Body + Bath empowers customers to experiment with the store’s selection of all-natural, customizable bath products.
To find ideal skin serum, customers begin by perusing a selection of unscented bath soaps, creams, salts, and lotions that are free of parabens and other chemicals. They then can dress them up with more than 200 fragrant oils, botanicals, milks, and glitters. Staffers allow customers to sample every product in-store and provide wells of already-concocted recipes to help spark ideas. Should customers mix a masterpiece, the staff record recipes and keep them on file to recreate at the customer’s bidding.
