Pamper Your Feet With
A Herbal Foot Bath
We often tend to neglect our
feet. Until the day when they start giving us trouble, we never
think of them. Very few people realize that their feet may benefit from some special care and attention.
Here is a nice and easy way to
pamper your feet:
At the end of the day, try to spend 10 or more minutes lying down
with your feet higher than your head. Those who have access to proper
massage oils, can give their feet a massage to relieve stiffness.
Herbal foot baths are another way of pampering your feet. They are
relaxing and soothing at any time and will relieve tiredness without
costing a lot of money.
Herbal foot baths are also of
therapeutic benefit in conditions
such as catarrh, colds, headaches, neuralgia and toothache. They are a
nice substitute for full body baths
when you are pressed for time as you can take a foot bath whilst
watching television or whatever.
Rosemary Foot Bath
Use a handful of fresh rosemary for every 2 liters of boiling water. Let
the rosemary steep in the water for 15 minutes, strain and use while
still warm. Soak your feet in the water for 20 minutes. Dry with a soft
towel and sprinkle with talcum powder, if desired.
Mint and lavender, on their own
or together with rosemary, can also be used for refreshing foot
