Swollen legs and ankles are a common problem, especially among women and the elderly ones. Water retention in this region of the body is called edema and can be treated naturally.
Besides being unaesthetic or simply very upsetting, edema is also a health problem that has to be treated. You can opt for a variety of natural treatments that help reduce the swelling of the legs and ankles.
Soaking your feet in a bath with soothing ingredients is the best cure for swollen feet after a long day.
Just 15 minutes a day are enough to get better rest and get rid of the pressure caused by foot swelling.
– 5 tablespoons of sage (50 g)
– 5 tablespoons of rosemary (50 g)
– 2 cups of hot water (500 ml)
Method of preparation:
Heat the water and pour it into a suitable basin (where both feet can stand).
Add sage and rosemary and mix.
Take a feet bath and keep them soak in water until it cools (about 15 minutes).
