Essential Oils For Swollen Ankles, Legs and Feet



Image – Campwander.blogspot.com

We just found a fantastic tutorial for two great methods of dealing with swollen ankles using essential oils.

The first method involves creating an oil blend with a base oil for massage.



This sounds great – but it was the second method that really caught our eye. It involves making your own foot spa using the essential oils, hot water and (this part is amazing) adding smooth pebbles to the bowl, so that you can roll your feet over the stones and get a kind of reflexology massage! They even included a nice foot chart so you can explore the ancient art of pressing on the various pressure points! :)

It really is possible to pamper yourself in style with the right knowledge and some simple techniques. I’m so ready for one of these foot baths right now, even though I don’t have swollen ankles! Ok here is the link to the easy tutorial and the essential oils required: http://campwander.com/2013/06/essential-oils-for-swollen-ankles-legs/

ps. Note that if you experience sudden, unexpected swelling of the ankles (i.e. not associated with known injury) it could be an indication of an underlying condition that should be checked out by a physician.

    I am highly allergic to all perfumes and many natural scents. Can you tell me what the essential oils are made from other than the natural item itself?

    My family is on an extreme health quest, to say the least. These herbs, spices, and essential oils are helping improve our general health.
    I will use these oils and the stones on my dear and aging mother’s feet to help quell her inflammation.
    Thank you.

    How long after initial treatment can we expect to see visible results? My husband is less than patient. Lol.

    There’s only one treatment for swollen ankles and thats compression hose. I know…I have them. Its lovely to have massage oils etc but if you really want to manage it get the stockings!

    I DO HAVE SWELLING OF ANKLES MINEIS CAUSED BY MY CHEMOTHERAPY, ITS ORAL AND I HAVE TO TAKE IT FOR MANY YEARS, ALREADY ON IT 18 MONTHS., AD THERE IS SOME HERBS I CANT USE ANY SUGGESTIONS?

    recently traveled and for 2 weeks my feet/ankles remained swollen. needless to say my only fashion footwear were flats.
    I have self diagnosed that I no longer have a tolerance for high salt. so since I have returned, I am very attentive to salt intake. Internal water elimination is necessary for fluid retention.. lasik was the immediate remedy… also all the natural topical therapies are helpful

    the picture on the right clearly shows someone with an underlying medical condition and not the typical swelling that comes by the end of the day. Perhaps changing the photo to show typical swelling might be safer for those that think they can treat their own edema.

  • By Portia, December 4, 2013 @ 2:33 pm

    Do you perhaps have any remedy for swollen eyelids and baggy eyes? Tried cucumber, teabags etc, dont help.

  • By Tina Brown, December 4, 2013 @ 3:18 pm

    Tammy Austin have they checked you for Lymphedema. It often goes undiagnosed.

  • By Lynn, December 4, 2013 @ 6:45 pm

    Swollen feet and legs can be a symptom of UTI, so remedies for that may help, also.

    My mother wears a pacemaker and has an ankle swollen on the outside. The gp can find no apparent reason, can i use the oil massage, or is there a possibility of a clot?
    She is 94 and her ankles generally have a little swelling, but not like this one.

    Subclinical hypothyroidism … that’s also a big factor in fluid retention. If you have; fluid retention, regular constipation, often tired, irregular menstrual cycles etc. I would urge you to consult an MD practicing integrative medicine.

    Wearing a slight platform heel (1″) rubber slipper helps in case of sprained ankle. My mother who had a fall while in her late sixties was cured by this simple technique.

  • By Tina Thomas, December 29, 2013 @ 10:12 pm

    i am going to try this for my feet they have been swollen so bad for month’s Thank You .

  • By Selina, December 30, 2013 @ 1:38 am

    The doctors don’t seem to think this is a problem…if it is, I hope it’s quick and painless… ::shrugs::

    MY LEGS AND FEET WERE SWELLING IM TAKING CIRCULEGS (HORSE CHESTNUT)FOR EDEMA BUT IF YOUR EYES ARE PUFFY I WOULD GET YOUR THYROID CHECKED ALSO

    If you have swollen feet or legs, get checked by a doctor. It can be a sign of heart failure. Even if it’s nothing serious, fluid buildup in your legs can cause blood clots and lead to a pulmonary embolism. Seriously, if your feet have been swollen for more than a day or two, see a doctor.

  • By Peg, March 9, 2014 @ 8:14 am

    Adam is right, I had the swollen feet, ankles and legs. Inadvertently, I had gone through life thinking I had eaten something salty.. until I had to make that 911 call for a tight chest. Paramedics scooped me up and took me to the ER. I was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. My fluids had backed up so much, my heart was drowning..

    Jeanette , The Young Living Oils by Gary young are all natural no added . Also has blends of different oils . Also many more products . You could check there web page and get a catalog . Some of them just take one drop like Thieves which will stop a sore throat . They cost but go a long ways . Also another good Company is Abundant Health i think . You can also take most of Gary’s oral are can disfuce are rub on . I reallly enjoy using them and know they work .
    I was a representative for awhile till i couldn’t get out . Need to see if my # will still work . He moved his clinic to Ecudor after to much hassel when he had it set up in Utah . You should see the Lavendar fields in Mona Utah when they bloom .He also has more in North Idaho .
