Here’s an aromatherapy recipe for a foot bath that will help to relieve your allergy symptoms.
Whether your allergy symptoms appear on your feet or not, this foot soak will help.
Just sit back, relax and enjoy the aroma!
Allergy Relief Soak
Fill a foot basin or bathtub halfway full with lukewarm water and let it set a few minutes.
Combine 2 tablespoons of sea salt or bath salts with the following essential oils:
- 3 drops of Lavender essential oil
- 1 drop of Rose essential oil
- 1 drop of Geranium essential oil
Soak your feet while sitting for 20 minutes (or longer). Pat your feet dry and put on a pair of socks.
This recipe comes from Valerie Gennari Cooksley, aromatherapist and author of “Aromatherapy: A Lifetime Guide To Healing With Essential Oils”.
According to Valerie:
“This footbath can be done three time per day during allergy attacks, or occasionally when early symptoms begin to surface. Try this footbath daily for prevention when you expect seasonal changes to trigger symptoms, and see if you can observe a more diminished allergic response than usual.”
For best results, you may want to follow this foot bath with another aromatherapy recipe for feet called the Clear Head Blend.
Who knew that I'd be writing about feet for a living?!… Or even that a website devoted solely to feet, shoes, and foot care issues would be successful? But as it turns out, many people have questions and concerns about their feet — and we do our best to provide the most helpful answers here. Myself and a handful of others who happen to have some rather unique foot issues share our firsthand experiences with everything from ingrown toenails, bunions, calluses and rough feet to trendy shoes and helpful foot modeling tips. When I'm not writing about all things below the ankle, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
