Natural Treatment for Chilled Hands and Feet

Do you ever go to hop in the shower or bath, and the water temperature feels fine on the rest of your body, but as soon as you put your hands or feet in- suddenly they are about to burn off?!

This happened to me, every-single-time. It would take me 10 minutes to ease into the bath, and my feet would have a cold-burn feel that would dissipate after a while but it was such an inconvenience. Also, my hands were freezing ice blocks, all the time.

I have found a remedy. I am on Day #3, of a 1 week remedy program, and thought I should share it because, let me tell you- it’s working! I went for a walk tonight, and usually I cannot feel my fingers about 5 minutes after being outside (however, Melbourne is pretty cold!). Tonight, I got home and my fingers were cold, but I could still feel them. Seriously! capsicum foot soak

It is simple and affordable.


2 Capsicums

3L FIltered Water


Simply roughly chop up 2 capsicums. Seeds, tops and all.

Place in a pan with about 3 liters of water, and bring to the boil. Let the capsicums and water boil for about 15 minutes.

Allow the pot to cool, until the water is just above luke-warm.

Use the mix to soak your hands and feet in for 15-30 minutes.

Repeat every day for one week. I can’t vouch for this, but apparently it’s meant to leave your feet lovely and warm (yep- chill free!) all winter long! Who wouldn’t want that?
