Aromatic cooling foot spray for swollen legs or tired legs after a long flight

March 2nd, 2017

Let’s look at a second blend for easing the discomfort of swollen legs! This time I’ll show you a recipe for a foot spray to cool down the hot flushes that can cause fatigue in the leg and foot area.

Mint Foot spray


Aromatic cooling foot spray for hot flushes and swelling in the feet and legs


  • Base material:
    • Gin (10ml)
    • Purified water (30 ml) 
  • Essential oil (dilution rate 2%)
    • Juniper (2 drops)
    • Cypress (3 drops)
    • 5 geraniums
    • Eucalyptus lemon (4 drops)
    • 7 peppermint peppers
    • Bergamot (3 drops)

Mix the gin and all essential oils in a glass container. Add the refined water and mix thoroughly. Pack the mixture in a spray bottle of amber glass. Shake well before use.

Using the distilled liquor of Juniper berry as a base material increases the diuretic action, stimulating the excretion of toxins from the blood by its tonifying effect on the veins. Add geranium, eucalyptus, lemon and bergamot to control swelling and pain. You can cool down hot flushes with peppermint.

The spray is very convenient to use when your legs are tired after traveling long hours in an airplane, or from excessive sitting or standing.

Mixing these essential oil blends into 40 ml of a vegetable oil such as jojoba or coconut oil will make a massage oil that has excellent cooling effects and measures to counteract swelling.

* Bergamot is phototoxic, so care must be taken not to expose the skin to sunlight after application.

* If you are sensitive to alcohol, you can add purified water instead of gin.
