As if winter wasn't bad enough without chilblains. Traditionally, folk wisdom advises us to take a little bit of vigorous exercise before going out into the cold, to get the blood flowing in our hands and feet …

… and then to warm ourselves up slowly once we get back indoors again.

People can get prone to chilblains if they're taking certain types of medication, like beta-blockers, for instance, because they constrict very small blood vessels in their extremities.

And the worst of it is, it can take several hours for chilblains to develop, so you don't know whether or not you've got them until too late.

Here's a foot bath to soothe your feet whether or not they've developed chilblains yet:


4 drops Lavender
2 drops German (not Roman) Camomile

to warm – not hot - water and soak your feet for at least fifteen minutes. Keep topping the water up if it gets too cool for comfort during that time, but don't let the water become hot.
