Your feet, an often overlooked marvel of the human body, hold immense health benefit potential. Did you know when you apply essential oils to the soles, you can enhance the quality of your sleep, boost your immune system's defenses swiftly and effectively & calm anxious feelings and alleviate the burdens of stress

Reflexologists have long advocated the use of essential oils for the bottom of your feet, and here are three reasons why:

  1. Enhanced Absorption: The pores on the soles of your feet more swiftly draw essential oils into the bloodstream, because of the absence of hair follicles and the thinner skin layers compared to other body parts. Studies reveal that essential oil traces can be detected throughout the entire body within 20 minutes of application

  2. No Sebum Barrier: Unlike other areas of the skin, the palms of your hands and soles of your feet lack sebaceous glands, which normally hinder the absorption of externally applied creams and oils. So there is no barrier between the essential oils and your pores, allowing for direct absorption

  3. Abundant Nerve Endings: With approximately 72,000 nerve endings in each foot, your feet possess the highest concentration of sensitive nerve endings per square centimeter in the body. These nerve endings are intricately connected to various organs and systems through meridians, as recognized in the practice of reflexology. Applying essential oils to your feet helps reach and support multiple areas of your body, which support physical, mental, and emotional aspects of health
