How to Keep Your Feet Healthy and Feeling Great!
Your feet take a beating throughout the day, between being in shoes all day without much chance to breathe and going bare foot. Your feet stabilize your movement and keep the rest of your body in alignment. According to Harvard Health Publishing, "More than three out of four Americans will suffer some kind of foot ailment in their lifetimes." A foot massage can improve circulation, stimulate muscles, reduces tension, and often eases pain.
Healthy Feet Mean a Happy Body
There are many ways to keep your feet healthy. Remember, your feet work hard, so take some time to take extra care of them!
Natural foot scrub – Take 5-10 drops of lavender essential oil mixed with two tablespoons of olive oil and ½ cup of sea salt or epsom salt. Mix well. You can add more olive oil if needed. Place the scrub all over your feet, mainly concentrating on the heels. Rub thoroughly for several minutes, rinsing with warm water.
Sugary sweet foot scrub – Take ¼ cup of sugar,5 drops of eucalyptus oil, ¼ cup of almond oil, and some of your favorite moisturizer if desired. Mix well and spread all over the feet. Do not forget in between the toes and concentrate on the heels. Rinse thoroughly in a foot soak first and in the shower or tub thereafter.
Foot smoothie – Mix oatmeal, olive oil, baking soda, and water together to form a paste that will give your wounded warriors a lot of moisture. Just spread the paste all over your feet, relax for 10 minutes, rinse well, and pat dry. Put moisturizer and cotton socks on overnight; your feet will feel soft and smooth in the morning.
Soak Your Feet
Sometimes you may not be in the mood or have the time to do a foot scrub, so soaking your tired feet is good enough!
Add ½ cup of baking soda and ½ cup of Epsom salts to a basin of very warm water. Soak your feet for as long as you like. You will notice that your feet will be rejuvenated and refreshed instantly.
