Natural Foot Care/Bare Feet On Grass

Borrowing ideas from some ancient Far East cultures. Discover new experiences for your feet and foot health.

These ideas can help you focus on the natural beauty of your feet much like the people of India have for a very long time. There they take great pride in the appearance of their feet.

We're talking about the NATURAL appearance of your feet. Not paints, polishes, tattoos and such. Just your feet in all their natural glory.

Here's some home made, natural ideas we've gleaned from web sources, books and personal experience. Ideas for softer and smoother skin, sweat control and a little pampering too!

DISCLAIMER: These natural foot care treatments are provided 'as is' from various sources. There are no warranties or guarantees expressed or implied with them. Use them at your own risk. Please check with your health professional first if you have any doubts.

Natural Home Made Topical Treatments

Foot Cleanser

A simple and refreshing way to start.

Ingredients:

  • paper towels
  • lemon juice

Mix equal parts of lemon juice and water in a bowl. Dip the paper towels in this mixture . Place these wet towels on your feet. Leave for a few minutes. This will soften and smooth the skin on your feet. It will also remove odors.

You can store any left over mixture in the fridge for up to a week.

Strawberry Foot Exfoliator

This is a bit different and well worth the effort.

Ingredients:

  • 8 strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons of olive or safflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt (course, non iodized salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of finely chopped almonds

Mix and blend all the ingredients together to form a paste . Don't over blend! The strawberries have a lot of water in them. Too much blending makes for a 'watery' paste.

Massage it onto your feet, rinse off and dry your feet. Be careful with your massaging here. You don't want to grind almond bits into your skin! Gentle does it. It's the almond oil part of the nut that does the work!

You should refrigerate any mixture left over. Shelf life is about a week.

Dry, Rough Feet

Try this if you have dryness and roughness of the feet, particularly if you have been walking barefoot outdoors in the sun.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Mix together and warm slightly. Apply to the affected areas.

A Relaxing Foot Lotion

This can help you and your feet feel very good. This is a lotion to be worked into your feet, not to be washed off.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon almond oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon wheat germ oil
  • 12 drops of essence of eucalyptus oil or fragrance oil

Place all of these ingredients in a dark colored bottle and shake it well. Rub it into your feet and heels whenever you feel you need it.

This product requires refrigeration and has a shelf life of about a week.


Natural Home Made Foot Bath Treatments

Here are just a couple of natural foot care ideas to add some 'foot beauty' pizazz to your foot bath*. (Visit our Foot Spa & Foot Bath page for the complete foot bath story)

A Foot Bath For Beautiful Feet

This magic mix can make the skin of your feet smooth and beautiful.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • cinnamon for fragrance
  • Water (temperature and amount are not important)

Mix all ingredients in a tub or your foot bath container. You can substitute any spice, perfume or flower petals for the cinnamon. Soak for a while. Wash with a mild soap. Repeat for a few weeks to achieve silky, smooth feet.

A Soothing Foot Bath

This is a concoction you add a small amount of to your foot bath for a soothing result.

Ingredients:

  • 1/8 teaspoon menthol crystals
  • 4 tablespoons powdered alum
  • 8 tablespoons boric acid
  • 10 tablespoons magnesium sulphate (Epsom Salts*)

Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Add one teaspoon of this mixture to a gallon of very warm water. Soak as desired.

The dry mixture has a lengthy shelf life.

*SPECIAL NOTE: As noted near the bottom of our Foot Spa & Foot Bath page, Epsom Salts SHOULD BE AVOIDED if you suffer from dry skin as this will only dry your skin out further. Also avoid this one if you have diabetic feet.
