We are asking a lot of our feet...
They willingly take us wherever we tell them to go and in the process encounter a lot of stress.
A reminder to take better care of them for us all!
I saw a 2014 survey that was taken where 8 out of 10 Americans have experienced a foot problems (https://www.apma.org/files/APMA2014TodaysPodiatristSurveyAllFindings.pdf)
One noted that they found that most people don’t care for their feet as much as other parts of their bodies….
We oilers are different.
We are learning a different way!
We know that the our feet have over 3000 pores ready and waiting for oils!
So how can we up our game and take better care of our feet?
If your feet are used daily (which they probably are!), give them a little TLC daily.
Daily equals consistency....
This could be using the Young Living LavaMint Softening Foot Scrub.
This scrub not only helps exfoliate (hello summer sandals), but hydrates.
It helps refresh and revive tired feet.
I have gotten into the habit of Animal Scents Ointment on my feet nightly.
How about you??
Soak your feet. A good Epsom Salt + Essential Oil Foot Soak can really help you tired feet while also supporting a detox of your body. That’s right! An Epsom Salt foot soak helps pull the toxins out. Win-win! Add your favorite oils to further your support. Peppermint, Panaway, Lavender, and Stress Away are a few of our favorites!
A great unwinding habit before bed.
Pull the stress out and sleep better too!
Don’t wear too tight of shoes.
Comfortable shoes are worth the health of your feet. A couple of summers ago, I had a big foot issue that meant only 1 pair of sandals worked for 6 months or so. I then discovered the meaning of comfort first over cute.
Try on the Legs-Up-On-The-Wall Yoga pose after a long day. Start with a few minutes and work your way up.
Take care of your feet. You’ve only got one pair! 😉
