How To Keep Your Feet Feeling Smooth And Soft With The Herbs And Essential Oils

How To Keep Your Feet Feeling Smooth And Soft With The Herbs And Essential Oils

Your feet have more sweat glands than any other part of your body, but they are usually trapped inside shoes for  most of the day. Here are ways to keep them odour-free.

An excellent foot soak will make you really feel a bit spoiled, it will make you really feel loosened up. They can do marvels like calming your muscles, moisturizing your skin and also relief from painful discomforts that happens because of standing for long hours or walking in brand-new shoes. They are also discovered to decrease swelling of foot and protecting against germs from entering cuts and cracks underneath toe nails.

Today, I would love to share how to do fragrant foot soak with the herbs (Rosemary, Sage and Ginger Roots) and essential oils. (Lavender and Eucalyptus)

You will need:


Step 1: Place rosemary, sage and ginger root in a large saucepan with water. (if you have no fresh herbs to hand, use 1 table spoon of each herb in dried form instead.) Bring to the boil. Remove from heat, cover bowl and steep for 10 minutes. Strain.

Step 2: Add bicarbonate of soda, Epsom salts and essential oils. Mix well. Pour into a foot spa or shallow dish big enough for both feet. Top up with extra water and add ice.

Step 3: Soak feet for 15 minutes; pat dry.

Give yourself a regular pedicure and care for your feet with soothing natural products. Let your feet breathe and exercise naturally by walking barefoot whenever you can. Being vigilant about foot care helps prevent problems such as corns and keeps your feet feeling smoth and soft. 🙂
