At the end of your day, or when you’re done working out, your feet are in need of attention. Essential oils are a great way to invigorate nerves and reduce inflammation. You could make a soothing blend of essential oils or a massage blend. Take a hot water bath with these oils, or simply soak your feet in them.
We are an active family and exercise is part of our daily habits to keep our bodies working their best. My hubby and I tend to stick with walking either on the treadmill or outside with the dogs, however, my son loves to run. I also use a standing desk to avoid sitting all day long.
We are all too familiar with sore, achy, tired feet. So, there are a few things we like to do either before heading out or after our workouts and long days on our feet.
Essential Oil Blend For Feet
These are essential oils that we use almost daily.
Use Before Workout
Try combining the soothing blend essential oil and peppermint essential oil with a carrier oil like coconut or almond oil and apply topically on the bottom of your feet. This helps to invigorate nerves, reduce inflammation and pain, and acts as a coolant.
Use After Workout
After workout or long day of work on your feet, apply the soothing blend essential oil, lavender essential oil, peppermint essential oil or the massage blend essential oil topically to the bottom of your feet combined with a carrier oil.
If you’re lucky, you can get your spouse or significant other to give you a nice foot massage with the essential oil of your choice.
You can also add any or a mix of those essential oils in hot water for a relaxing, soothing foot soak or bath. Add in Epsom salts and baking soda for extra health benefits.
