Essential Oils For Swollen Ankles, Legs and FeetImage –

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:
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.

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.

    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

  • By Julie, RN, CFCN, November 27, 2013 @ 11:20 pm

    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.

  • By lindy, December 4, 2013 @ 9:35 pm

    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.

  • By An, December 5, 2013 @ 8:01 pm

    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.

  • By Ishwary pious, December 29, 2013 @ 6:56 pm

    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.

    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..

  • By Julene Dixon, March 10, 2014 @ 3:07 am

    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 .

    I hve a bypass operation for the fast 5 yrs,since the operation was succesfully done,it leaves to me a swollen ankles and legs,i wanna give it try,

  • By Dorothee Heinze, May 21, 2014 @ 9:53 am

    You have to find the CAUSE of swelling which is actually the body holding on to water because it is DEHYDRATED!
    See Robert Morse ND on youtube and some of my natural health sources in my “about” on facebook, if you like! Just search my full name 🙂 !

    Best medicine for swollen peoples

  • By Pam, May 21, 2014 @ 9:33 pm

    This sounds like a wonderful treatment, however, I highly suggest to anybody out there to run this by your GP before trying, if you have any medical issues. I took a pharmacology class, and you would be astounded to see which combinations of medications, natural remedies and even foods, can cause strange side effects, interactions and toxicities. The teacher was fond of saying that EVERYTHING you put in or on your body causes some type of reaction. Sugar causes blood glucose to rise, salt causes blood pressure to increase, and even a little less water can cause dehydration, etc. So please use caution. Just because it is natural doesn’t mean it won’t interact with something else. Arsenic is a natural product. Just sayin’

  • By Maria, May 22, 2014 @ 5:29 pm

    I have also had a bypass operation 4 1/2 yrs ago,since the operation ,it leaves to me with swollen ankles and legs,I want to give it try as well.

  • By Christi, June 27, 2014 @ 2:02 am

    Funny enough, the Firm Lotion from Alma Naturals works great for swelling!

  • By indra, September 27, 2014 @ 10:23 pm

    it is important to know all health remedies

  • By kantuckee, September 6, 2015 @ 4:06 pm

    I was amazed! On your article I ordered this essential oil Cypress and had hopes it would help my legs and ankles. It does to some degree if used regularly… but what amazed me was better! I have arthritis in my right knee mostly. So I put some of the oil on it too. Within a couple of days the tight swelling in my knee went down allowing it to bend it completely for the first time in over a year! It’s on my list now for “Essential” Essential Oils. Thanks!

  • By kantuckee, September 6, 2015 @ 4:11 pm

    Something else, I have been to the doctors and yes they don’t even notice my feet and legs. My heart is fine. The doctor looked at my blood work and said you are fine, come back in 6 months and bookkeeping is right down that hall. I have known for years that my lower back has a spiral to it and the nerve compression can keep the signal to pump blood can be lost… I swell all day and am up all night to eliminate the excess fluids. Try sleeping with legs elevated. Helps a lot.

    I have a dust llergy from last 4 years,can u tell me any solution

  • By Stephen W, September 22, 2015 @ 2:05 pm

    be sure to read the ps about seeing Dr for swelling. Some cases
    of swelling can not be treated but all swelling is related to
    a problem going on inside the body. No topical oils or anything else
    can affect or treat these problems. Don’t be fooled and don’t
    put off a doctor visit to determine if any foot or leg swelling is
    significant medically.

    Love your pages

    Swelling of the feet and ankles comes from the body being overly acidic. Make the body alkaline by squeezing 1 whole lemon into spring or distilled water. Drink every morning. During the day eat mostly fruits, vegetables , smoothies, and juicing. You will see the swelling go down tremendously so that you can see your ankle bone. Rubbing something topically will not do the job.
