Often overlooked, our feet are an important part of our health and wellbeing. We use our feet to get from place to place and engage them in activities of work and leisure. When our feet are sore or inflamed, it impacts our daily life. Here are some essential oils to both help you keep your feet healthy and restore them when needed.
You may not think of it initially, but Juniper Berry is an excellent oil to use on feet. This oil helps reduce inflammation and relieve joint pain. It can also act as an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
At this point, it would be no surprise if we listed this versatile oil in every Head to Toe post. Lavender French essential oil eases joint and muscle pain by fighting inflammation. This helps relax tight or strained muscles. Its anti-inflammatory properties also make it a wonder in aiding the healing process of minor cuts.
Please note that this list is designed to help you start your journey and is by no means exhaustive. Refer to our individual Essential Oils A to Z entries for more in-depth discussion of each of our 100+ essential and absolute oils. Check out our “Head to Toe Series” archives here.
