Read on to learn more about my favourite reflexology medium!
I love using scented wax for reflexology treatments, and I'm pleased to say these are provided by Somerset-based company Songbird Naturals. All-natural and beeswax-based, Songbird's reflexology waxes provide the perfect balance of grip and glide with delightful scent combinations.
Beeswax is a natural substance produced by honey bees and has been used on the skin in ointments and creams since the ancient Egyptians. It has many benefits for the skin, two of which are:
it creates a barrier to protect your skin from damage without clogging pores, AND
it has the ability to lock in moisture for soft, hydrated skin.
Is there a vegan alternative?
In recent years, Songbird have developed a range of Vegan Society-certified plant-based waxes which remain 100% natural.
I like to use the Tea Tree and Mint vegan wax for refreshing reflexology treatments - the Spearmint and Peppermint oils are cooling, cleansing and stimulating, whilst Tea Tree oil balances the formula with its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
Using Songbird Naturals waxes during reflexology
The essential oil aromas are released as they are warmed and massaged into your skin during reflexology, allowing you to benefit from their various therapeutic properties.
For optimal use, choose to keep as much of the wax on as possible at the end of a treatment - this will lock in moisture and protect your skin from any potential damage (which is likely on our hard-working feet!).
BUT, I know that the feeling of your feet slipping about in your shoes isn't for everyone! Rest assured, removing the wax at the end of a treatment doesn't mean that you won't receive any of those great benefits.
Do I have a favourite?
YES! My personal favourite is called 'Balance'. It's a wonderful blend of Geranium, Frankincense, Bergamot and Lavender essential oils which have been selected for their emotional balancing properties.
