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 health condition that should most definitely be checked out by a physician.
