People Everywhere Are Rubbing Essential Oils Onto Their Feet
Here's why there's more to it than just oils...
Immunity Roll-On being applied to sole of a foot.
One of the most effective ways to use essential oils is by applying them to the feet. The soles of our feet have larger pores, allowing a better flow to the bloodstream.
A huge plus comes from the benefits of reflexology. Reflexology is an ancient practice where practitioners apply pressure to certain areas of the feet. These specific points are all connected to body organs via nerve lines (each foot contains 7,200 nerve endings).
Considering reflexology's vast history of benefits, using essential oils on the feet can be a powerful way to reap the benefits on certain parts of the body.
Soles of the feet are naturally less sensitive (to defend against cuts while walking). However they are just 1 of 2 body parts that do not contain sebaceous glands. Sebum can be a barrier to entry, and applying to the feet helps essential oils to avoid this barrier.
5 Reasons Why We Rub Essential Oils On Our Feet
Oils deliver faster through the bottom of your feet!
The pores are thicker on the sole of the foot and our legs act like straws sucking up the compounds quickly into the bloodstream. If applied all over the bottom of the foot, the oil can be detected in every cell of the body within 20 minutes!
The soles of the feet and the palms of the hand are the only sites on our body without Sebaceous Glands.
Since Sebum is an oily substance it would actually further “shield” the body from absorption of anything. Since the palms and the soles do not secrete sebum, they are more ready to absorb oil.
Every nerve line in the body ends in the feet. According to research, each foot has 7,200 nerve endings. Did you know that?
In most reflexology systems, the big toe represents the brain and head. The next two toes represent the eyes, and the next two toes represent the ears. The top third of the sole is our chest, the mid third is our stomach and digestive system… it can get very intricate, but is SO cool.
No wonder we apply oils to our feet - our feet represent our entire body!
Essential Oils for Reflexology
Many first-timers are drawn into essential oils due to their pleasant aromas, and dive deeper once they learn about the benefits. Oils on their own can be a powerful all-natural solution, and using them for reflexology can enhance the effect!
The 100% pure oils from Vitality Extracts are great for reflexology, and diluting with a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil can help prevent any irritation for sensitive skin types. It is good to test different carrier oils out and find what works best for you. Here is a link to their wide range of carrier oils.
STEP INTO REFLEXOLOGY
Enjoying the power of essential oils is fun...
Learning about their all-natural benefits is even better!
Immunity has a light cinnamon smell that my family loves. When one of us starts to feel like we are coming down with something, I immediately start diffusing it, and rubbing it on our feet. It always amazes me how quickly we start to feel better. Immunity helps your body fight off whatever it’s battling, and acts as a safeguard for your family. We love it! The shipment arrived very quickly, and the packaging was in perfect shape. Vitality has great quality oils! We were surprised at the size of the bottle, and how deep the color of the oil was. We will definitely be ordering again!

Thank you so much
I haven’t been disappointed. Some of the oils were for other people who have problems with stress and sleeping problems. I myself love the Energy and Sweet Dreams oils! The Sweet Dreams seems to help me relax instantly and I apply it to my feet. The Migraine oil was for my son in law but I don’t know if he’s had a chance to use it. My daughter loves the arrow bracelet. Lastly, when I purchased 3 of the Sweet Dreams oil and one was broke, you promptly replaced it at no charge. Your caring for people speaks volumes for your company and that is a great quality in my eyes! Thank you so much for your products. I do recommend them
