Seaweed Foot Puff with Ginger 100g

  • This Ballyglass Seaweed Foot Puff with Ginger contains traditionally hand-harvested, high quality seaweed from the clean waters of the unspoilt north Mayo coast. The seaweed is hand-dried outside in the natural elements, as it has been for generations. As a consequence, it is in its most natural form and all the gels are preserved within it when it is dried. In addition to the seaweed, this puff contains ginger which helps to nourish the body and mind. A seaweed foot soak is a great way to de-tox and recover from the day.

    For ease of use, each bundle of seaweed is wrapped in fleece which can be gently rubbed on the skin to encourage exfoliation. Having the seaweed contained in a cloth also prevents it from going down the drain! The bag can be undone if you would prefer to have seaweed floating freely in the basin. Seaweed in warm water is completely different to our experience of it on the beach and warm seaweed wrapped around your feet is soothing and restorative.

    Ingredients: Hand harvested, air-dried serrated wrack and bladder wrack, ginger. This product is free from chemicals, not tested on animals and 100% biodegradable.

  • Use: Put the foot puff in a basin and cover with boiling/very hot water. Allow to soak for 5-10 minutes to release the algal gel. Add sufficient hot and cold water to the basin to make it perfect for your feet. Rub the foot puff or the seaweed over your skin to exfoliate.

    Benefits: This seaweed foot soak cleanses, detoxifies, moisturises, rehydrates and tones the feet. It stimulates the lymphatic system and remineralizes the body. It boosts the circulation and reduces water retention as the seaweed helps to release excess fluid from congested tissues. It is good for skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne. It alleviates joint and muscle pain, rheumatism and arthritis, and is a lovely treat for aching feet.

    As we know from reflexology, all of the body is reflected in the feet, so soaking the feet in this way helps to benefit the entire body. The whole experience helps to balance your body chemistry and relieve stress, creating an anti-ageing effect.

  • Ballyglass Seaweed Gatherers is run by Sue Mackill and her family. They believe in using natural ingredients in their most untreated form, so their products come to you in as close to their natural state as possible and are produced in the most energy efficient way, often only using sun and wind to dry their seaweed.

    They hand harvest seaweed from the shores of Ballycastle on the north coast of Mayo. This area is very clean and unpolluted by any large towns or industries. They gather the seaweed by hand in a traditional, sustainable way, cutting the seaweed to make sure the holdfast is left in place so the seaweed can continue to grow.
