Essential Oils for Your Feet

Author: Dr. Larita
October 12, 2011

After a day of standing at work or a long day of shopping, your feet will enjoy a soak in a basin of warm water. To pamper your feet even more, add about a dozen marbles,  1 tablespoon of salt, and 4 drops of your favorite essential oils. Peppermint essential oil will refresh your feet at any time, calendula oil is great for hard skin and corns. Lavender, fennel or chamomile will relieve tired and swollen feet. You can breath in the wonderful aroma while you slowly and sensuously rub the soles of your feet back and forth over the marbles.

After you blot your feet dry, massage the whole foot including the toes with the following oils:

  • 6 drops rose
  • 4 drops lemon
  • 3 drops thyme
  • 2 drops chamomile

Blend these essential oils together in the above proportions and use 5 drops in 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil. A few foot baths and you will never want to give them up. Your feet will thank you too.
