Recently I have been sharing my little secrets to keep myself healthy in the face of germs and sickness. And this is no small feet mind you! In years past, I was a magnet for any cold, stomach bug, or flu passing through. It was a miracle if I skipped a “season” without getting sick…a miracle that rarely happened. Now I’m excited to say that things are looking up, and I feel like I have this “sick thing” licked! How may you ask? I credit a significant portion of this change to my diet shift and stress management. Also, my essential oils and supplementation have made a huge difference. To see more precisely what I do each “sick season” read Boost Your Immune System in 7 Easy Steps. Then come back, put your DIY hat on, and let’s get to making this immune boosting night oil![ninja-popup id=3836 autoopen=true]
It’s Time To Pamper Your Feet
Yep, that’s right. This lovely night oil is for your cute little toes. Now, I am not on my feet all day like some. But when I am on them it includes teaching dance. And at 34, after a good 15+ years of pointe shoes, they are feeling it! That is why this night oil is amazing. It’s not only immune boosting but pampering as well. I adore it for these three reasons:
- It contains almond and avocado oils which are great for dry or cracked skin. These oils are rich in vitamins E, A, and D and leave your feet feeling soft and silky.
- This night oil contains four amazing essential oils. First of all, we have Thieves and Rosemary to boost your immune system. Both have high antimicrobial and antiviral properties helping the body to fight off infections. Also, there is Peppermint oil which is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and soothing for the skin. And finally, there is the goddess of all essential oils, Lavender. I can’t list all of the wonderful properties of this oil, but in this application, I love its calming and moisturizing effects!
- Essential oils have the unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and travel through the bloodstream. According to the Essential Oils Pocket Reference by Life Science Publishing “topically applied to the feet or soft tissue, essential oils can travel throughout the body in a matter of minutes.” This fact is one of the reasons essential oils are so efficient and when it comes to immune boosting one of my top picks!
How To Use Your Immune Boosting Night Oil
My favorite way to use this oil is in a dark, glass roller ball. I fill the container with my oil mixture and then roll the oil on the bottoms of my feet right before bed. Be sure to give them a little massage! I like to follow the Vita Flex Foot Chart paying particular attention to the sinus, lungs, liver, and kidney zones. Finish up with some soft, fuzzy socks. Because you know I’m obsessed with socks! And then you’re ready to rest and let the immune boosting night oil go to work.
I think it’s also important to mention, as always, be caution of the brand of essential oil you use. And I am not just saying this so you will buy my favorite oils! There is a severe health risk associated with using improper and impure oils. Be sure you know and trust the brand you choose. Know what they stand for, where they get their oils, and how they manufacture them. Young Living is the brand I use and recommend whole heartedly. They give you a seed to seal promise allowing products to go out of stock before selling you a sub-par or inferior product.
