Aromatherapy Foot Blends


World reflexology week is coming up - this year its September 20 - 26th. Basically, world reflexology week is an opportunity to promote reflexology to the world. As an aromatherapist, I have found that combining aromatherapy blends specifically for the feet can help relax and heal one of the most overworked, but often neglected, parts of our bodies.


It is estimated that your feet will carry you approximately four times round the circumference of the earth in your lifetime. Women are said to have more health problems with their feet than men, possibly due to women's shoe fashion and style; certain health conditions, such as diabetes, nerve conditions and circulatory disorders are often identified on your feet before any other part of your body.


Essential oils which are suitable for aromatherapy foot blends include:


Essential oils can be blended in carrier oils and creams. Aromatherapy foot blends can be used daily after bathing and showering to relieve tired and sore feet. Its also possible to make uplifting sprays to revive tired feet and treat feet with an aromatherapy foot scrub to get rid of dead skin cells.


When using any essential oil, don't forget to pay attention to any cautions or contra-indicators for your personal condition.


In celebration of world reflexology week, I've just launched an Aromatherapy for Feet Section in the Sedona Aromatherapie web store!
