Essential oils are great! They aren’t just for improving health, but for use in beauty products, house cleaning, etc. They have become very well-known and popular in the last several years, and while people use these oils to improve health and wellness, they have shown great results when used with Reflexology.
Reflexology is an old technique that dates back to ancient Egypt and has been used as an alternative way to cure certain health problems and to promote overall health. It involves applying pressure to certain areas of the human body, such as ears, shoulders, feet and hands, which are considered to correspond with different systems and organs in the human body.
According to various research studies funded by the National Institute of Health and the National Cancer Institute, reflexology may help reduce the psychological symptoms, pain, depression, anxiety, stress and even help in palliative care in people suffering from cancer by promoting relaxation and improving sleep quality.
Experts suggest that essential oils work best when used in reflexology. Some of the essential oils that have been found to do wonders when used in reflexology include:
The Pineal gland plays a key role in regulating and maintaining the sleep and wakeup cycles, and this blend is great for this gland. Using it on the bottom of the feet before going to sleep can help you to relax. Lavender essential oil also works great for improving sleeping patterns. Even just the scent can be calming and relaxing!
Ultra Pure Immunity can be used in a diffuser, topically applied to the skin (when first diluted with a carrier oil like coconut) and even as a disinfecting spray to help you in cleaning around the house. It kills germs, strengthens the immune system so it’s better at fighting disease and encourages healthy living. Rub it on the bottoms of your feet and feel the effects quickly!
If you are suffering from chronic pain, you can rub this oil on the bottoms of your feet to help alleviate that pain. The massage, plus the oils, will help to stimulate the area that is hurting and bring some relief. In addition, massage the pained area with the oil itself can offer additional relief.
