It isn’t always necessary for you to go to a meditation class or therapy session to get yourself relaxed. Soaking your feet in a bath of hot water can soothe your tired spirit and help you restore energy. Taking a hot foot bath after an exhausting day is a wonderful idea to relax and calm down. However, a foot bath can do more than relaxation. A warm foot bath can improve blood circulation, relieve muscle tension and pain, reduce anxiety and stress, and hydrate your feet.
You can also add extra ingredients to your foot bath. Different additions will bring various health benefits. Here are some popular ways to make your foot bath even better.
Vinegar is made from fermented grapes or apples. It’s high in acetic acid. During the fermentation process, the sugar breaks down. However, the vitamins and antioxidants, such as polyphenols, are left in the end product. It makes vinegar a healthy beverage. Vinegar also has natural antibacterial properties, so bacteria have a hard time growing on your skin. It can fight bacteria that cause odour.
To bath your feet with vinegar, mix warm water with vinegar in a tub or bowl. Note that vinegar is quite acidic and may cause irritation. If you experience any discomfort, you should stop or try to dilute the vinegar with more water.
Essential oil is the concentrated extract of plants. There are several ways of using it, including adding a few drops to your foot bath. The health benefit of essential oil depends on the plant.
Here we listed a few for you to try:
- Cedarwood oil is an antiseptic and anti-fungal, good for Athlete’s Foot.
- Cypress oil is an antiseptic and natural deodorant, which is helpful if you have a blister or are concerned about foot odour.
- Juniper berry oil alleviates muscle aches, including those caused by arthritis.
- Lavender oil is a favourite for relaxation and also a natural pain reliever.
- Rosemary oil helps soothe tired muscles and has antiseptic properties.
- Wintergreen oil is considered nature’s aspirin. It helps with pain and swelling and has a cooling sensation that is particularly pleasurable on tired feet.
