Burning Feet Rub
Posted by WynnJera

Ingredients:

  • 10 drops Peppermint Oil
  • 1 ounce Sweet Almond Oil

Your feet will thank you and you will be ready to head out again tomorrow. We love to get out and walk in the summer. Some of us do not have the luxury of walking in grassy or wooded areas. Trekking on asphalt can leave us with hot burning feet. How about a nice foot bath with Epsom Salts?? Sounds good!! Add a few drops of Lavender Oil or Peppermint Oil to make it even nicer. Follow with a nice good rub using this mixture. It’d be even better if you can find someone else to do the rubbing…

Cool as a Cucumber Soak
by Renee Rouleau, From Self Magazine 1/90

Ingredients:

  • 6 large cucumbers, skin removed, pureed in a blender
  • 2 cups powdered milk
  • 2 tsp dried lavender flowers, if available (Do Not Use Lavender Oil)

Mix the ingredients and pour into a clean bottle. Apply directly to feet or add 1/4 cup of the mixture to a lukewarm footbath and soak for 20 minutes. Cucumbers & milk are anti-inflammatory.

You can also add 1 cup to a bath and soak your whole body – as an added bonus, this works to soothe sunburn.
