We use our feet pretty much ALL day! They are essential in helping us get where we need to go, and we often forget to show them proper care in return. Until there is a problem. As most of us know, when your feet hurt, you are miserable. Preventative care is one of the most important, and often overlooked, parts of foot care.
Those with Diabetes can suffer from damage to their nerve endings, which can affect their extremities, causing numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in their legs, hands, and feet. Because of this, diabetic feet sweat less frequently or not at all, leading to dryness. As a result, it is important to ensure that feet are properly moisturized without encouraging bacterial and fungal growth. It is important to avoid products that contain petroleum, mineral oil, or waxes that can clog the pores and prevent the skin from breathing.
Some of the best oils for foot care, along with their benefits, are listed below:
Invigorating Foot Soak
To help cleanse feet for the prevention of foot ulcers, infections, and inflammations:
To create the soak: pour boiling water into a large bowl, and let it cool down to a comfortable temperature. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the cleansing foot soak mixture, and soak feet for up to 15 minutes.
Freshening Foot Powder
Foot powder helps to keep feet cool, absorbs foot sweat and reduces foot odor. This is especially important in summer when shoes can get very sweaty and create a breeding ground for bacteria.
Add oils to the powder, stir until the oil is thoroughly mixed in, then dust onto feet before putting on your socks.
Soothing Foot Oil
This anti-microbial blend can help to reduce inflammation when gently massaged onto itchy, irritated, cracked, and peeling feet.
Mix the essential oils with olive oil, and store the mixture in a dark glass bottle. Gently rub the oil blend onto your feet before putting on your socks, or going to bed.
Yours in Good Health,
