Foot Massage and Treatments

Treat Your Feet with Natural Home Remedies

Foot massage is such a relaxing way to soothe sore feet and relieve foot pain.

We often underestimate the importance and role of our feet, and they can be easily neglected in our skin care regime.

Whether you are heading into summer or nearing the end of it, your feet will benefit from some TLC. I find the hot weather harder on my feet as they are more exposed and I am more likely to go barefoot.

Try these revitalizing treatments to get your feet back to looking and feeling good.

Here you will find some simple natural foot care made from ingredients that are easy to find - you may even have them in your kitchen and garden already!


TYPES
There are many different types of foot massage, that provide different benefits for our health and our bodies.
They offer relaxation, but also the opportunity to open energy pathways throughout the body, allowing us to heal.


Foot Spa

FOR SORE FEET : a wonderfully fragrant warm foot spa to relieve foot pain, and relax sore feet.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • 3 teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 2 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Rosemary Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Bay Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Geranium Essential Oil

  • A bowl that is big enough to put your feet in, preferably with a flat bottom.
  • Warm water.

    WHAT TO DO:

  • Fill the bowl with the warm water.
  • Add the salt and stir until it dissolves.
  • Mix in the Essential Oils.
  • Soak your feet for about ten minutes.



    Foot Massage Scrub

    FOOT MASSAGE : a natural foot massage scrub made with readily available kitchen ingredients. Great for the summer when the fruits are available and your feet are on show!

    WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • 2 teaspoons of coarsely ground sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 6 large strawberries or 1 ripe medium sized mango

  • A medium sized bowl, and a potato masher
  • OR a kitchen blender

    WHAT TO DO:

  • Put the salt and oil into the bowl or blender.
  • Mix just enough to combine.
  • Hull the strawberries and cut into chunks, or peel and de-seed the mango before cutting into chunks.
  • Add the fruit of your choice to the oil/salt mixture.
  • Mash or blended until well mixed but with some small chunks left (not totally smooth).
  • Massage the mixture all over your feet so they are well exfoliated and the skin refreshed.
  • Rinse your feet well, and then moisturize.

    Your feet will look and smell great!


    Foot Powder

    FOOT POWDER : A refreshing, cooling foot powder that is absolutely simple and keeps well.

    WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • Dried Peppermint Leaves - you can buy these if you don't have your own growing in the garden!
  • Precipitated Chalk - also known as calcium carbonate and is an odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. You should be able to get this at your pharmacy.

    WHAT TO DO:

  • Grind the peppermint leaves into a powder using a blender or coffee grinder.
  • Remove peppermint leaves from blender, and place in a container that has an airtight lid for storage.
  • Add enough chalk to make a powder with a consistency you are happy with.
    Special Note: As the chalk is such a fine powder, take care to mix gently to keep the dust levels down.
  • Use the powder on your feet and in your shoes as required for a sweet smelling, cooling effect.
