Our feet are home to some of the largest pores on our body. It is because these openings are so large that essential oils are able to quickly pass through layers of the skin and release its benefits into the body more efficiently.
The bottom of our feet isn’t as sensitive as other parts of our bodies because they have to endure more on a daily basis. When you think about how much time you spend on your feet, it’s no wonder our feet need some care.
