Why You Should Be Putting Essential Oils on the Bottom of your Feet Every Night!
Updated: Sep 18, 2019
Along with using Essential Oils through aromatherapy, and internally, you can use them topically on the skin in areas of concern. I put oils all over my body, and find great success in the benefits. But, Reflexologists will claim that using essential oils on the soles of the feet is the most effective way to apply them. Okay… so why is that?
There are no hair follicles on the soles of the feet, and five layers of skin. Both of these characteristics work to absorb the oils into the bloodstream faster. The oils itself are so effective because they are fat soluble cells, just like those in our bodies. The essential oil cells permeate the barrier of our own cells and work to alleviate problems from that miniscule level. The faster absorption on your feet, allows this whole process to speed up.
Also, the feet have over 72,000 nerve endings that are said to be associated with our bodily organs and systems. The energy meridians end at the feet, hands, ears, and face. So it is only practical to use these teachings when it comes to oils. If you apply them to the bottom of the feet, they will be carried through our cells to all other parts of the body. In fact, there have been several studies concluding that just 20 minutes after application on the feet, there were traces of essential oil throughout the whole body.
