If you’re on your feet all day or do a lot of driving, chances are your feet and ankles look like this by the end of the day, uncomfortable and swollen.

Lucky for us, there are several essential oils you can use to get your circulation moving as well as a couple of ideas for DIY spa treatments that can really make a difference too.  Combine both and you have a few new entries for your EO journal!

If you’re a slave to your feet these days, try an EO remedy…

Edema1

Apply 2 drops each of Lemongrass, Grapefruit and Cypress essential oils diluted in 1 Tbsp. of fractionated coconut oil, massage into feet, ankles and calves upwards towards the heart.  If you can someone to do it for you, all the better!

DIY Spa Treatment, Try this!

All you need are 1 dozen or so smooth stones.  You can find them at your local nursery, even Tesco has them in the gardening section.

A large, shallow bowl ~ big enough for both the stones and your feet.

Very warm water and 2 drops each of Lavender and Cypress (flower petals optional, but nice!)

Now, roll the soles of your feet slowly over the pebbles for a few minutes.  Bliss!

When you consider the science of Reflexology, a simple remedy such as the stone foot massage will not only relieve swelling, it will benefit many other areas of your body as well ~ don’t you just love DIY, multi-tasking beauty treatments?

For generally poor circulation, especially for the elderly (thin skin), Geranium essential oil is lovely and can show great improvement with regular use!

An added bonus is the mood and skin brightening effects of Geranium.

Add 10 drops of Geranium to 2 Tbsp. of coconut oil and massage from the hands to the elbows and from the feet to the knees.  Always with an upwards motion. Geranium is one of the best revitalizing oils and will make your skin softer and smoother while aiding circulation, a win win!
