How We Treated Heel Spurs with Essential Oils and Epsom Salts

In yesterday's post I shared that my hubby had had another flare up with heel spurs and that we had used the same protocol as last time with the same excellent results.

Here's what we did ...

(Note:  neither my hubby nor I are doctors and neither of us have any medical training.  I'm just sharing what worked for my hubby.  What worked for him might not work for others.   Please consult your physician for diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.)

Made up the following roller bottles:  (I chose not to mix all the oils in one bottle because sometimes they are more effective when they’re not mixed.)

Rosemary (10 drops in a 10 ml roller bottle topped with fractionated coconut oil)

Melaleuca/tea tree (10 drops in a 10 ml roller bottle topped with fractionated coconut oil)

Frankincense (10 drops in a 10 ml roller bottle topped with fractionated coconut oil)

He did the following about every 2 hours the first day … 

(1) soaked the foot in an Epsom salts foot soak for approximately 30 minutes in as hot water as could stand, dried foot really well 

(2) rolled the area with each roller bottle, one right after the other, one at a time

At bedtime, he applied Top Gun essential oil from Hopewell Oils to the affected area covering the foot with a sock, sleeping in the sock all night.

He repeated the same treatment the following day (Both times hubby was much better by the second day but if he had not been he would have continued the treatment until relief was felt.)

I hope this information is helpful.  If you've had success treating heel spurs please share what you did.

Update 10/10/2019:  Please read the comments below, there is additional information regarding this treatment from a trusted and qualified person that should be noted!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing what worked for ya'll. I will be making a note of this for my husband for when he has a flare up from his spurs.

    1. Brenda, I hope he never needs it but if he does, I hope it works for him as well as it does for my hubby.

  2. I’ve dealt with heel spurs too. What helps me is to flex/stretch my feet back and forth before I ever get out of bed.

  3. My thinking is that using the Top Gun for a full week would be beneficial. I would do the other parts of the protocol for three days and then continue with the Top Gun. This would likely get deeper into the cause of the heel spur and hopefully there would be no more flare ups.

    1. Lana, thank you! I will add that note to my notes.

  4. Hi Patsy, I think I finally successfully logged in to MeWe. Thanks. Nancy

    1. Yeah, I'll look forward to having you join us in MeWe land!

  5. Thank you for this post. I have shared it with my husband and will start experimenting with some of the products!
