Nourishing Heel Salve
I feel like my feet look they’ve been hiding out underground in some cave, by the time spring comes around. I like to call them troll feet! It usually takes a couple of good pedicures to get these babies sandal ready because my heals end up being so dried and cracked from the long cold winter.
This winter I decided to get ahead my troll feet by treating my heel by treating them with nourishing heel salve. Cocoa butter is packed with vitamin E and helps to restore lost moisture of dry skin. Beeswax is also a fantastic ingredient for dry skin because it acts as a humectant and emollient to in draw moisture and seal it.
Adding peppermint and tee tree essential oils also offer up a soothing effect to help combat athletes foot. It helps to reduce inflammation and sweatiness, not to mention it smells so good!
