Start by putting your feet in a bath with 5-10 drops of aroma oil in 3 l of water. Rest for 15 minutes. Rub hard areas and dead skin with a pumice stone or a brush. Massage the top of your feet and kneed the underside to relieve tensions and help the circulation.
Dry thoroughly between the toes, walk barefoot as often as possible and avoid nylons and tight shoes. Apply tea tree oil morning and night.
If your feet get tired when you're walking, put some ferns in your shoes. Form what old wife's remedies say, it should help.
If you use a natural powder after you've taken a bath, the shoes won't chafe as much. This powder is especially effective when it's hot outside.
1 1⁄2 dl (~5.1 fl oz) of talcum powder
2 tbsp of pulverized boric acid
1 1⁄2 dl (~5.1 fl oz) of corn flour
1⁄2 tsp of Peppermint extract
1 tsp of alcohol
Some cayenne pepper in your socks makes the feet feel warm soon. If you want to make a foot powder to use outdoors, just add something neutralizing, for example pulverized fuller's earth or talcum powder.
