It's important to take care of one's feet. After all, they do carry us throughout our entire life!
Here is a simple recipe for a foot cream that you can make at home. Apply it after a good scrub, and it'll leave your feet as soft as a baby's, and smelling like a garden.
You can adjust the proportions as needed, but as a general guide try this:
Melt in a double boiler:
- 2oz Shea Butter
- 1oz Cocoa Butter
- 0.25tsp Vitamin E (or you can squeeze a few edible Vit E capsules into your mixture)
- 30 drops Rose (Rosa damascene) essential oil
- 8 drop Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil
- 8 drops Petit Grain (Citrus aurantium subsp. amara) essential oil
Your feet will thank you!
This makes a 5% dilution. Please make sure to research the safety data on essential oils prior to use, and do a "patch test" before using any oils on your skin.
