Be honest — how often do you think about giving your feet some TLC?  If you’re like most of us, you trudge along day after day, forcing your feet to (literally!) carry all the weight.  And if that wasn’t bad enough, you cram your poor feet into tight socks, gym shoes, and pinching high heels.  Unfortunately, you probably don’t give your feet a second thought until they start to hurt.

But it’s time for a change!  The right essential oils make it quick and easy to treat your feet to some serious pampering so that they can keep up with every step of your busy life.

Did you know that your feet have 72,000 nerve endings in them?  That’s why a foot massage feels so incredible!  But at the same time, it’s why your feet can get so achy and uncomfortable if you don’t take good care of them.  They need TLC if they’re going to do everything you need them to do.

I’ve come up with a variety essential oil blends that you can use to create your very own foot routine.  The best way to take full advantage of them is to start with a footbath.  In fact, herbalists and healers have been harnessing the power of footbaths for hundreds of years!  Whether you don’t have the time or the mobility for a full-body soak, a footbath is an easy way to give your feet some serious relief.  Even just a few minutes will make your tired feet feel rejuvenated, and that unpleasant foot odor will be gone.

There are a few different footbath recipes you can use.  For all of them, you’ll need to heat up 2 1/2 pints of water, pour it into a foot bowl, and add the essential oils listed below.  You’ll also need to add 1/4 cup of regular salt or Epsom salt. 

–  Footbath recipe for sweaty feet

4 drops Cypress essential oil
3 drops Bergamot essential oil 

–  Footbath recipe for tired, aching feet

3 drops Pine essential oil
4 drops Lavender essential oil 

–  Footbath for athlete’s foot

5 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
2 drops of Geranium essential oil
 
No matter which recipe you choose, let your feet soak for about 15 minutes — and be sure to inhale the aroma for an even bigger essential oil boost!  If the soles of your feet are really rough, rub them with a pumice stone once your bath is done.  In addition to sloughing off dead skin cells, this will improve the circulation in your feet.  Then, dab your feet dry. 

For a real feet treat, follow up your footbath with one of these special foot massage oils.  Again, you can pick the recipe that’s best suited for your specific foot issues.  In each of them, you’ll need to combine the essential oils listed with 1 ounce of carrier oil.

–  Foot oil for walkers, joggers and runners

5 drops Rosemary essential oil
3 drops Peppermint essential oil
4 drops Lavender essential oil

–  Foot oil for swollen feet

5 drops Ginger essential oil
5 drops Cypress essential oil
2 drops Lavender essential oil

–  Foot oil to combat fungus

Foot fungus is a common problem that leads to uncomfortable symptoms like itching, burning, and pain.  Luckily, the right essential oil blend can ward off this unfriendly fungus.  By using antifungal essential oils you can finally get some relief.  Just apply this aromatherapy blend to your feet on a daily basis and  you’ll be able to bid bon voyage to all of that yucky fungus!

5 drops Tea Tree essential oil
4 drops Geranium essential oil
3 drops Lavender essential oil

It’s easy to stop abusing your poor feet when you turn to the essential oils and expert advice at Aromandina!

Dec 16 2011 I don’t know why it has become the tradition to put sugar candies in Christmas stockings. How about we change that tradition and use our Christmas stockings to promote our families health and well-being?  Stocking Stuffers Not only is it better for everyone, it is special, unique and personal. Children absolutely love Essential Oils. They will be so happy to receive Aromatherapy that is just for them. Here are some stocking stuffers I came up with for my nieces and nephews that might give you some gift ideas. Andrea 16: Chocolate Rose Perfume, so unique and exquisite, but not overbearing, brings a deep sense of relaxation and that feeling of being beautiful that comes with knowing you are loved. Mateo 15: SERENO Body Mist, to help him calm down when his hormones are up. Paula 14: EXULTO Body Mist, to help her always be in a good mood. Martina 13: Lavender Essential Oil, because that’s her favorite scent. Danny 10: Citrus Delight, because he is sweet and creative. Bernie and Joaquin 10: VIGOR Body Mist to help them be focused at school and refreshed when they do sports. For Stocking Stuffers I usually choose Aromatherapy items where the person receiving the gift can use it daily, carry it with them in their purse, backpack or brief case and where it is unique to them and their needs. 3 PERFECT AROMATHERAPY STOCKING STUFFERS Essential Oil Blends Aromatherapy Perfume or Roll On Personal Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blend (click here to read last article for a guide) Aromatherapy Mists can be sprayed directly on the skin and face as a pick-me-up whenever our energy levels are low. They can refresh, rejuvenate and keep us healthy. They are inexpensive and pre-diluted. They are so useful and often overlooked as a vital part of the Aromatherapy arsenal. Kids can take them to school and use them to help with their studies, like ALERTA Body Mist for helping them memorize or RESPIRO Immune Support to keep their immune system strong and healthy. For a teenage girl an Aromatherapy perfume is perfect. It is small, easily fits in a purse or backpack and can be used daily to give her a sense of her beauty, poise and grace. It gives her that sense of being beautiful, feminine and special, and at the same time it helps her health and balances out her hormones. Chocolate Rose is a perfect choice. I found it useful to just spend some time thinking about the people I wanted to give gifts. I wasn’t thinking about what to get them, just about them. As I did that I found certain Essential Oils would come into my mind that fit them as a person or could help them with an emotional challenge they were facing. Here is the Aromandina product page. Just browse and take a look. Something perfect might pop off the page for that certain someone. Are you unsure what Essential Oils would be best for a certain someone? Is someone you know going through some emotional challenges and you want to know what Essential Oils would help? Ask your question here and I will be sure to answer.
