At the base of this soothing foot balm are some awesome, all-natural ingredients that may have positive benefits for your body – such as shea butter and beeswax. The bottom of your feet is the best place to put ingredients like this as well because it leads directly to so many vital places in your body. (Check out this reflexology chart online if you are unfamiliar! It is amazing!)

The essential oils of melaleuca and peppermint are both considered powerhouse oils, too. The melaleuca has antifungal and antibacterial properties and many people feel it really helps soothe and heal the skin. It can really help with your feet, and if you have cracking going on, make sure you apply this balm liberally to it! The peppermint extract may help by relaxing you, cooling your feet and helping to relieve pain and tiredness. Peppermint is so invigorating! So, give your feet a good soak and then apply this soothing foot balm to help with those cracks and tired, worn tootsies.

Soothing Foot Balm Directions:

• Set out your clean jars. Remove the lids. Set aside.
• Fill the bottom of your double boiler about half – 2/3 full of water. Bring to a full boil, then lower the heat to a simmer so your beeswax and shea butter does not burn or scorch.
• Add the beeswax to the top of the double boiler (not the water part!). Stir occasionally until melted.

• Allow the soothing foot balm to set up for an hour or two at room temperature, before putting on your lids.
• Your foot balm will start out clear and then you will start to see the wax setting up and cooling. I always feel the bottom center to test and see if it is cooled before I am sure they are ready to add a lid.

To Use the Soothing Foot Balm:

• Put a small amount of soothing foot balm on your finger and rub the balm thoroghly over any cracked or sore area on the bottom of your feet. (Do this to a damp and clean foot as the moisture will help it set in.)
• Rub around toes and in arch for sore feet as well.
• Use as needed.

Note: None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor and do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions about using essential oils so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about essential oils.

While winter can be a beautiful and enjoyable season it can also bring with it the wind and cold temperatures. These two things play havoc on your skin and can dry your skin mercilessly unless you fight back. Hands especially bear the brunt of winter weather. While I love the indulgence of thick and heavily scented creams and lotions from the department store, sometimes I prefer lotions, salves and creams that I make myself. Knowing what you put in your homemade beauty products means that you can have confidence in their quality, fragrance and gentleness.
