A stretchy solution for problem feet

30 Nov 2018 12:29:00

Elastane is a synthetic fibre known for its exceptional elasticity. It is a strong and durable fabric, known to be breathable when worn. Here, at Cosyfeet we sell a variety of shoes with the front made from Elastane forming a soft, stretchy area that won’t put pressure on swelling or painful toes.

Elastane can stretch to accommodate increased swelling which can be great for people with sore or sensitive toes. This clever fabric will mould to the shape of the foot, which can be ideal for bunions or hammer toes. The elastane is Teflon® coated which makes it water resistant so it’s fine to wear in wet weather.

Crisis at Christmas

29 Nov 2018 13:20:00

This Christmas, Cosyfeet is donating 400 pairs of new socks to homeless people attending ‘Crisis at Christmas’ centres across London. The socks will be offered to users of the podiatry service provided over the seasonal period.

This Christmas, Cosyfeet is donating 400 pairs of new socks to homeless people attending ‘Crisis at Christmas’ centres across London. The socks will be offered to users of the podiatry service provided over the seasonal period.

Crisis is a national charity for homeless people. At Christmas, the charity provides companionship and support to alleviate loneliness and isolation, and to help people take their first steps out of homelessness.

Socks are an important part of foot health and are a constant need for homeless people who are often on their feet all day. At this time of year, it’s likely that the only pair of socks they own will be wet as well as worn. A pair of clean, dry socks won’t just provide them with comfort, but it could help prevent foot problems and even hypothermia.

For further information about the Crisis at Christmas campaign visit the Crisis campaign website here.

Enjoy Christmas calm with lavender

29 Nov 2018 13:20:00

The festive season can be a stressful time of year. Balancing the demands of shopping, cooking, family obligations and house guests can leave us feeling overwhelmed and tense.

An easy way to evoke feelings of calm and lower your stress levels is to use lavender oil. Lavender is known as a calming and relaxing herb and is frequently used for insomnia, anxiety, depression and stress relief. A study in the journal of Psychiatry Research found that when sniffed for five minutes, lavender oil decreased levels of cortisol, known as the ‘stress hormone’ in participants.

How to use lavender oil:

  1. Lavender oil is one of the few essential oils that can be used directly on your skin. For an immediate calming effect on the body, rub it on your feet, temples or wrists.
  2. A few drops on a cotton wool ball placed in a small glass bowl in a room will create a calming effect and has the added benefit of deodorising the room of any unpleasant odours.
  3. Try adding a few drops of lavender oil to your bath and soothe away the stresses of the day.
  4. Burning lavender in an oil burner is the most effective way to disperse its scent. Fill the top of an oil burner with water. Add one or two drops of lavender essential oil to the water. Light a tea light and place it underneath the burner to heat the water and oil so they evaporate as steam.
  5. Adding some drops of lavender to your pillow can help you relax, unwind and enjoy a better night’s sleep. Alternatively, you could use a spray that contains lavender such as our Lavender and Chamomile Slumber Mist.

It’s carnival time in Somerset!

13 Nov 2018 10:43:56

Somerset carnivals are an annual highlight in the West Country. It takes place in the two weeks after Guy Fawkes night and has been going since the gunpowder plot of 1605. The purpose is to raise money for local charities.

Over one hundred illuminated floats (or carts) join in the procession along with performers of all ages from the local carnival clubs. Thousands of lights, miles of electrical cable and hundreds of moving parts go into making this a dazzling spectacle.

The carts are always themed and can include anything from popular children’s films to scenes from history. Some carts cost in excess of £40,000 to build and are the result of thousands of hours work throughout the year.

Bridgwater is the first and largest of the carnivals and attracts around 150,000 spectators from all over the world. It’s the only one where there is ‘squibbing’ after the procession. Squibbers walk poles with exploding fireworks through the town, scattering the crowds with burning embers.

Squibbing at Bridgwater carnival

After Bridgwater, the procession tours seven towns including Burnham-on-Sea, North Petherton, Shepton Mallet, Wells and Glastonbury.

It’s often cold (and wet) on carnival night. The shows can last several hours so if you want to go the distance, make sure you come prepared.

Your carnival survival pack!

1. Take a flask of tea, coffee or hot chocolate to insulate you from the inside.

2. Remember to wear your hat, scarf and gloves.

3. It’s a good idea to get there early if you want a decent view. To avoid lots of standing around, take a lightweight folding chair or one of our handy Folding Flip Stick Seats.

4. Keep your legs and feet toasty with a pair of our Thermal Softhold® Seam-free Knee High Socks.

5. Don’t worry if it’s wet and windy. Our Minnie and Stanley waterproof shoes are windproof and 100% waterproof so your feet will stay warm and dry.

6. If you’re wearing boots or wellies, why not warm them up with a pair of our Luxury CosyCushion™ Sheepskin Insoles.

7. If you’re aching from standing in the cold, run yourself a warm bath when you get home and add some drops of Pure Lavender Oil to help relax your muscles.
