Swollen Feet and Ankles

Swollen Feet and AnklesFeet can swell for many reasons – standing for long periods, arthritis, rheumatism, varicose veins, constipation, hot weather, a long flight – and the swelling caused by most of these conditions is easily treated.

If your feet and legs swell often, however, it may indicate a heart or kidney problem; you should seek help from your health-care practitioner.

Before massaging or applying any type of lotion to the legs, raise the feet so they are even with the heart and rest for 10 to 15 minutes.

Swollen Feet and Ankles Blend

10 drops cypress essential oil

5 drops eucalyptus essential oil

5 drops lavender essential oil

In a 1/6 oz. (5 mL) glass bottle, combine oils.
Shake to blend.

 

Treatments:

Foot massage: In a small non-reactive bowl, combine 1 tsp. (5 mL) grapeseed or sweet almond oil, 2 drops cypress, 1 drop eucalyptus or fennel, and 1 drop lavender essential oils. Mix thoroughly. Using light, sweeping movements, gently massage over your feet, ankles and calves. Then start at the tops of the calves and work your way down to the ankles, using upward strokes (toward your heart). Repeat several times. Elevate the feet when sitting and avoid sitting or standing without movement for lengthy periods.

Cold compress: In a non-reactive bowl, combine 4 drops Swollen Feet and Ankles Blend and 1 tsp. (5 mL) milk. Add 1 cup (250 mL) ice-cold water and stir well to disperse oils. Soak a cloth and wring out enough water so cloth doesn’t drip. Place cloth on your ankles and feet. Repeat often and follow with a foot massage.
