Whether it’s your heels, toes, or your arches that are hurting, natural relief is at hand! Check out these natural remedies to soothe sore feet.

Stretch.

If you feel a needle-like pain in your heel whenever you stand, that’s plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a swelling of the ligament that runs from your heel to the ball of your foot. Before you get out of bed, reach down and lightly pull your toes toward you to stretch your foot. Hold that for 10 seconds, then repeat twice. This stretch eases heel pain within two weeks.

Take B vitamins.

B vitamins keep your nerves healthy and robust. If your levels fall, you can get burning, tingling, and even cutting pains in your feet. Take a B-50 complex supplement daily.

Use a cream that contains urea.

To get rid of those bumps, apply a lotion containing at least 20% urea twice daily. Urea-based lotions soften corns within ten days, triggering an improvement in one month! To speed removal, also buff corns with a pumice stone when the skin is soft after bathing.

Take off your shoes.

Whenever possible, take off your shoes and walk around in socks, slippers, or bare feet. It’s a great way to increase circulation and quickly decrease bunion swelling and pain.

Use wintergreen oil.

Wintergreen oil is full of methyl salicylate, a natural anti-inflammatory that’s readily absorbed through the skin. Try massaging diluted wintergreen oil (six drops mixed with two oz. of any moisturizer) into your feet improves circulation and decreases spasms, ending the pain within five minutes and preventing future flareups if done daily. 

Practice cold & hot soaks. 

Fill a tub with cold water, the other with hot water. Sit down and dip your feet in the cold water for one minute, then in hot water for one minute; repeat three times. 

Heal heal cracks.

Mix five crushed-up aspirin with 1/2 tsp. each lemon juice and water. Spread on your skin; wait 10 minutes, rinse—buff with a pumice stone, and dab on a urea-based cream.
