Essential Oils On Feet: Immune Boost or Bust

Foot Care is an import component of health care and essential oils are wonderful substances - that can be incorporated into a health conscientious regime,

✅Eat A healthy Diet 🥦🍊🍎
✅TAKE anti-oxidants such as Vitamin A, C, D & E and Selenium & Zinc, research indicates that these nutrients are important in supporting the immune system.
✅Exercise: 🏃🧘🏾‍♀️💃 improves health.
✅Want to improve your health? Don’t smoke and reduce your alcohol intake.
✅Reducing your exposure to synthetic perfumes and fragrance is another component of living a healthy life.

Essential Oils on your feet will make your feet smell great - and may help to control athletes foot, because some essential oils have anti-fungal properties.

A foot rub or body massage with some olive oil, coconut oil or lotion with a few drops of various essential oils added may help with the temporary relief of musculoskeletal pain. 

❌But the Peppermint oil rubbed on your feet or on your belly won’t fix your irritable bowel syndrome. But the massage might make you windy, and that will feel better. 💨😌
Except it may not make the person next to you feel better. LOL

A foot rub with a lavender lotion will smell and feel fab - but you had better keep your foot near your nose while sleeping🦶+👃 = 😴🤣
