Aching Feet: pain relieving remedies

Aching feet.
Maybe you have been out all day shopping on Black Friday or have been out dancing in heels. All you know is your feet hurt and hurtin' feet make you feel bad all over. You need a quick remedy! 

Before you go shopping:
For your next marathon shopping trip to start by wearing comfortable shoes. We want to look cute while we shop. I know I don't want to wear clunky sneakers. My shoe choice for a lot of walking or traveling is Skechers Go Walk or Skechers Flex.

I love the slip ons. They are comfortable, light weight, cute and come on lots of colors and styles.

Also, try Dr Scholl's Gel insoles. They make them for all types of shoes including high heels. I find they do help cushion the feet making heel hurt less.

Here are some quick remedies to soothe and refresh you aching feet:

Peppermint foot soak
Give sore feet a nice peppermint foot soak.  Fill a large bowl or foot bath with hot water. Add 4 tablespoons of Epsom salt or sea salt and mix it until it dissolves. Add 4 peppermint tea bags.  Soak your feet and relax for 15-20 minutes.  

Add marbles to the foot bath. Move your feet over the marbles to give your feet a massage.  Give your feet a quick marble massage anytime by putting the marbles on the floor and moving your feet over them. You can find marbles in craft stores in the floral department.

Moisturize and Massage 
After your foot soak, give your feet a massage with a foot cream. I like Burt's Bees Peppermint Foot Lotion. It's cool and refreshing.

Raise your Feet 
Put your feet up. Recline on the sofa  or in bed with pillows under your feet to help drain fluid from your feet and lower legs reducing swelling.
