Each and every day, our feet are of service – taking us anywhere we go and helping us stand up literally. They endure whatever activity we have in mind – from the simple sitting to a rigorous marathon.
After a hard day’s work, it is pretty much a given that our feet will somehow seek rest or in some cases, ache. A pair of aching feet can be very bothering and even painful most especially if you’re still walking your way home.
Thankfully, you can give relief to those pair of aching feet when you get home. You can give your feet a warm soak by the time you reach home. All you need is a basin or a bucket and some lukewarm water. You can soak them in for around 15 minutes.
The warmth will help loosen up those tightly worked out muscles and will also help in blood circulation.You can also put 2 tablespoons of Epsom salts in the basin of warm water. Dry them after the soak and moisturize it with your favorite lotion.
Another home remedy for foot pain is a good massage. Whether you do it yourself or you ask another one in the household to do it for you, a foot massage works pretty much like a warm soak. It also loosens up muscles and increases blood flow.
It is advisable to start working with the ball of the foot up to the toes. You may use baby oil or a massage oil or even settle for a dry massage. There are also food items that are said to have pain relieving effects for your feet such as asparagus, cayenne pepper and mustard seeds.
