    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    I have been into essential oils, aromatherapy and natural baths, etc. lately. I saved this from Outpost Natural Foods. It was an article by Alan Hayes. It includes instructions for massage and soak. More foot instructions will be posted in separate recipes.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Massage

    • 2 tablespoons almond oil
    • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
    • 12 drops rosemary essential oils

    Soak

    • 1 tablespoon sea salt or 1 tablespoon epsom salts
    • 3 -4 drops lavendar essential oils or 3 -4 drops rosemary essential oils

    For Extra Sore and Aching Feet

    For Cold Wet Feet

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Before soaking your feet, give each one a preliminary massage. Combine the almond, avocado and rosemary oils, thoroughly mixing. Store any remaining mixture in an airtight, amber-colored glass bottle, in a cool, dark cupboard, for up to 2 months.
    2. 2
      Pour a little oil into you hands and hold the left foot firmly. Press along the underneath area and upper surface for about 20 seconds. This will induce a marvelous feeling of relaxation.
    3. 3
      Next, place your left foot over your knee. Press, rub and pull each toe, and knead the sole with your knuckles. Then place the fingers of both hands on the sole and the thumbs, pointing toward the toes, on top of the foot. Stroke downward from the ankles to the toes. Repeat the procedure with your other foot.
    4. 4
      To soak your feet, you will need a basin large enough to hold them when they are fully stretched out. Pour in sufficient water to cover your ankles and add Soak ingredients, swishing the water around to dissolve the salt and blend the oil.
    5. 5
      Leave the water to cool slightly before soaking your feet. After soaking for 10 minutes, revive your feet with a quick dip in a basin of cold water, and then back again. Continue doing this as long as the hot water stays hot.
    6. 6
      If it has been raining and you have cold, wet feet, a pinch or two of mustard powder added to the water is especially invigorating.
    7. 7
      Finish off by massaging your feet with the massage oil mixture.

      Excellent foot care instructions! The oils felt so good. I used the sore and achy option for my feet and it helped so much. Even with the fibromyalgia pain! The cold weather in Wisconsin doesn't stand a chance against these instructions. I am giving these out to everyone I know! Made and reviewed for Diabetes Awareness Month - Thanks! :)
