(NaturalNews) Women in particular tend to wear shoes that contribute to foot problems and back trouble, largely as a result of wearing high heels or badly fitting shoes. Many women walk an estimated 15 kilometers a day in the course of activities such as child-care, house-work and shopping without counting additional exercise such as walking, jogging or running on a treadmill. Even feet shod in the most comfortable of high tech runners or health shoes also get tired and need a little pampering - try these relaxing home made rubs and foot baths to control foot odor and help rejuvenate feet.

Rosemary Foot Rub for Aching Feet

3 tablespoons alcohol
1 1/2 cups dried rosemary leaves
1/2 cup massage oil

Pour the alcohol over the leaves and leave in a bowl to infuse for at least a day. Strain into a jar or other container, discard the leaves. Add the oil and mix well.

Rub into your feet yourself, or put your feet up and ask a friend to massage your feet with the solution. A good idea is to take the solution to a masseur and relax while the job gets professionally handled.

Minty Lemon Foot Bath

Pieces of lemon, chopped up (1 or 2 lemons)
A few drops of lemon essential oil
Half a cup of sea salt
1/4 cup roughly chopped mint leaves

Mix all ingredients into hot water. Wait till it cools to a bearable temperature and soak feet in the foot bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Pat feet dry.

Sandalwood Herbal Foot Bath

5 liters water
2 drops sandalwood essential oil
1/4 cup Epsom salt
Boil water and allow to cool. Add sandalwood oil and epsom salts. Soak feet in this wonderful foot bath for as long as desired.

Foot Bath for Smelly Feet

2 cups water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh or dried thyme
2 tablespoons fresh or dried mint

Allow ingredients to simmer in a pan - pour into a bowl and allow to cool until bearable. Soak feet in the bath and relax.

Frozen Water Bottle Cure for Feet Pain

Freeze a bottle of water, then wrap it in a towel. Take shoes off and roll the bottle with the foot. This is an excellent exercise for fallen arches and exhausted feet.

Foot pain can be a reminder that feet are being neglected. Corns, ingrown toenails, fallen arches, bunions, poor circulation and athlete's foot are a few of the more common reminders besides day-to-day problems such as foot odor. Before the time comes to keep a podiatrist in business, take the time to look after those hard working feet.
