Feet are the great “barometers” of our body that reflect the totality of how we feel.
If you can think of the feet as an external thermometer, you will begin to see how they can greatly assist us in regulating our body’s temperature.
When our feet are hot…our whole body feels hot.
When our feet are cold…our whole body feels cold.
During this Winter season, it’s important to keep our feet warm and snuggly – so that we feel the same.
I would like to offer you some helpful suggestions for keeping your extremities in “toe.”
*Be sure to wear cotton/wool socks when walking in snow. It’s very important to keep your feet warm in extreme temperatures. Boots or shoes that are water-proof are very helpful. The minute your feet become wet…your entire body will become chilled. If your feet do become wet, change your socks immediately upon returning indoors.
*Be sure to wear a pair of socks or slippers, if your home is not well heated. This will keep your body at a consistant even temperature. Cold bathroom tile floors are the worst culprits for shocking the body into an extreme temperature change.
A Warm Foot Bath
Nothing feels better than a warm relaxing foot bath during the cold Winter months.
*Mix 4 drops of Rosemary pure essential oil to a cup of Epsom salts. Fill a large basin with warm running water, as you add the mixture.
*Soak your feet for 20 minutes.
*Do this after spending the day outdoors…your entire body will LOVE you for it!
*Use only pure essential oils.
*Foot baths are not recommended for those individuals who have a diabetic condition.
So remember, keeping your feet comfortably warm, will reflect the same throughout your entire body.
Enjoy this Winter season…without a case of “Popsicle Toes.”
And stay well, folks!
