Even if it isn’t warm where you are yet, you probably have started to think about Spring. I know those of you up North are ready for some warm weather.
But are your feet?
Chances are a long winter covered up has left them dry and in serious need of a little TLC before they are ready for sandals.
Today, I’ve got the most amazing DIY healing foot cream for you! It is easy to make and nourishing enough that it will handle the most serious case of Alligator Skin. (Trust me, hubby has the driest skin you’ve ever seen. This cream even helped him!)
The Quality of The Essential Oils You Use Matters!
I’ve tried most every essential oil company out there, and I am thrilled to recommend Plant Therapy as my preferred company!
After looking closely at the quality, purity, and ethics of so many companies, I’ve fallen in love with both the company and their oils. They are serious about safety and go to great lengths to test every single batch to ensure purity!

Healing Foot Cream
1/2 cup organic vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon beeswax
3 tablespoons brewed German Chamomile tea
1 teaspoon baking soda
15 drops lavender essential oil
15 drops geranium essential oil
5 drops peppermint essential oil
In a small saucepan, heat shortening and beeswax over low heat until melted. Remove saucepan from heat.
In another saucepan, warm tea and baking soda. Remove from heat.
When both mixtures are about the same temperature, place the shortening pan in a bowl of ice cubes. Add essential oils and mix well. Slowly add in the tea mixture, whisking well as you go.
To use, slather onto feet at bedtime and put on socks. Store away from heat and light. You may store for up to a year in the refrigerator or three months at room temperature.
