For sore feet, I work at a job where I am on my feet the whole shift. And at the end of a shift my feet are so sore and painful to walk on. I have a great quality pair of shoes with insoles so it's not my shoes. I'm starting to lose hope of ever finding a way to relieve the pain I have tried everything!
Do you know any home remedies I could try? Or products? I have tried a few creams...

When I use to work long 12 hr shifts, constantly on my feet, when I would get home from work I would be too tired for anything. I use to soak my feet in a pan of water with salt in it. Just plain old table salt. about a quarter of a cup. It was the only thing that would stop my feet from paining, good luck. Hope it works for you.

My uncle had somewhat of the same issue, he was told to fill a plastic bottle with water, freeze it and roll his feet on it.

Try taking a bath with Epsom salts dissolved into the water. They're known to relieve muscle soreness and it's a good way to just relax at the end of a busy day.

I just tried some of this last night. I filled the bottom of my bath with hot water, put in some regular table salt (I need to get the Epsom salts still) and put in a few drops of peppermint oil. It felt so nice! My feet were still swollen after twenty minutes or so, which I expected since they were in hot water, but then I went and propped my feet up in bed (higher than my heart to get the blood flow back down) and the swelling went down. It really felt nice on my feet, though it didn't solve 100% of the pain. I did read online that there's a method were you put your feet in hot water for 20 minutes, out and elevated for 20, in cold for 20, out and elevated for 20, and then finally in hot for 20. Unfortunately I didn't have that much time last night, but I might try this on a day off or on a day where I get home from work earlier in the evening. A lot of places also recommend chamomile oil and lavender oil in the hot water.

You've been very helpful! Right now I have my feet soaking in hot water with Epsom salts and a few drops of peppermint oil :) it feels really nice actually. I can't wait to see if it makes a difference , I'm going shopping today so we will see if my feet feel less sore!

A similar idea as the frozen water bottle. I used to just use a tennis ball and roll it with my foot. You can use as much pressure as you can stand. (I used to waitress for a living, on my feet for 9-12 hours a day in heels...and it really helped)
