We live in a modern world and lead a fast and busy lifestyle that’s truly taking a toll on our health. Our feet are especially affected– they bear a heavy load every minute of the day, and walking in high heels only makes matters worse.
Countless women around the world are in bad mood and feel tired just because of walking in uncomfortable high heels, and hardly ever anyone of them pays much attention to their feet.
Not paying attention to our feet can result in issues such as fungal infections, varicose veins and cracked heels, which will make your feet look horrible.
Although numerous women believe these issues are untreatable, they are– there are lots of natural treatments that can help.
A nice and calming foot soak is one of the best things you can do for your feet after a hard day at work. Foot soaks can relax your legs and eliminate the odor, while also damaging the bacteria and fungi which may cause problems.
Adding sea salt to the bath is even more helpful– the salt will tone your feet and raise your iodine levels too. Below you can see one such recipe with olive oil and Epsom salt which will relax your feet at night and relieve the pain.
- Peppermint vital oil
- Olive oil
- Lemon juice
- Epsom salt
- Mint tea
- A bowl of warm water
Just add all the ingredients in a bowl of hot water and mix everything well, then soak your feet in it for 15 minutes and rinse with water in the end. We also suggest scrubbing your feet with a pumice stone afterwards to get rid of all the dead skin cells from the surface.
The soak offers many benefits:
LOWERS YOUR STRESS LEVELS
Epsom salt baths are probably the best way of relieving stress. This type of salt is abundant in magnesium, a mineral that can reduce stress and plays a part in many crucial body functions.
RELAXES YOUR MIND
Reflexology is an ancient natural medicine method which counts on treating certain diseases by stimulating reflex points on the feet. The pressure points are found on different spots on the feet which have a large amount of nerves, and foot baths will work directly on them.
A UNIVERSAL DETOX TECHNIQUE
Foot baths can extract all the toxins out of your body and improve your overall health. A toxin-free system will work far better and will be much more resistive to any kind of ailment.
