A few weeks ago, I was contacted by customer Jaime Verazin, who has been a professional dancer for 15 years. She began her career touring the world with MOMIX and then moved to NYC to dance for the Metropolitan Opera and Mark Stuart Dance Theatre. Jaime was the Assistant Choreographer of ABC's remake of Dirty Dancing and can also be seen in the dance scenes of the film. She is a Fred Astaire Award Nominee Off-Broadway and is currently a Chita Rivera Award nominee on Broadway. Jaime has performed on Broadway in Finding Neverland, but can be seen today on Broadway in Bandstand!

I just love this time of year! The choices for footwear are endless. Strappy sandals. T-strap block heels. Colorful pumps. Espadrille wedges. Pretty much anything goes!
With all the fun footwear choices, sometimes we push the edge! We either stand too long, walk a bit too far or do a bit too much.
Even in our most comfy pair of shoes, our feet would be sore, tired and inflamed.

If yes, then perhaps essential oils can help!
A study conducted by The College of Podiatry revealed that it takes an average of 1 hour, 6 minutes and 48 seconds for high heel wearers to start feeling foot pain.
