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!

Jun 18 2012 Think that aromatherapy is just something that can make bath time more relaxing? Think again! Aromatherapy is capable of so much more than that. In fact, it’s the reason I have a son today! Back in 1996, my husband and I were trying to get pregnant.  When we ran into some problems, we went to a bunch of different doctors.  None of their suggestions worked, and I wound up totally exhausted. Part of what made the process so grueling was the fact that we didn’t know why this was happening.  There are lots of medical issues that can keep people from having children, but in our case, there was no medical explanation.  None of our doctors could tell us what the problem was.  They didn’t even have any educated guesses. It was just a bunch of shoulder-shrugging. As luck would have it, I was doing some reading about the benefits of essential oils.  At first, my reading was strictly business, since I was introducing essential oils to the Ecuadorian market, and I wanted to know everything about them. But what I read quickly turned personal.  In fact, it changed my entire life! Among their other benefits, essential oils can act as a “tune up” for your entire body.  Here’s how:

They help you relax   

When you’re going through an infertility problem, relaxation is non-existent.  Unfortunately, that can make it even harder to get pregnant!  Luckily, essential oils helped me live in the moment and experience more peace.

They balance your hormones and reproductive system

Amazingly, they work for both men and women.  Since my husband and I had gone through years of fertility treatments, we clearly needed some help in this department!

They stimulate different “drainage areas” 

Your skin, kidneys, and lungs are all responsible for getting toxins out of your body.  But if these “drainage areas” aren’t working the way they should, it can lead to a toxin build-up.  Luckily, essential oils can make these “drains” work harder. Just one month later, Juan Martin was conceived! I wanted to share my success with other couples, so I decided to offer the oil blends I used as part of the Aromadina line.  Here’s what worked for me:
  1. Cristina’s blend: fennel, clary sage, geranium, lavender, grapefruit.  This actually is a blend that I currently sell in my Aromandina line as Woman’s Help Body Oil 
  2. Martin’s bend: the same, plus 4 each of Basil and Spruce essential oil
So far, more than 20 couples have seen success with these oils. I don’t consider myself a fertility specialist, though. Instead, I believe that aromatherapy is a great way to bring your body back into balance. And once you’re balanced, amazing things can happen!    © 2012, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC
