DIY Cracked Heel Balm

Heels are such a problem, especially in cold weather months!  Heck, they’re a problem in the summer too!  Going barefoot wreaks havoc on the bottoms of feet.  In fact, speaking of summer, have you ever had super cute sandals on only to ruin it with heels that look like they belong to a 100 year old?! Been there, live there and currently wearing that t-shirt.

The best thing for heels is consistency.  Keeping that heel file handy and having a nourishing DIY cracked foot balm is key.  Today, you guessed-let’s make a heel balm!!

I have been making this recipe for a long time.  Unfortunately I wish I could say I stay on top of my heels.  I so don’t but when I do, I need some big bang for my buck.  First, I need a foot file that is hard core. Second, I need a foot balm that will nourish and heal extremely damaged and dehydrated skin.

    1. Marci!! Hi, how are you!? I chose Macadamia nut oil because it’s so nourishing but you could use all olive oil if you wanted. Coconut is fine too but it’s not as moisturizing. Apricot Kernel Oil could be a good idea too but that might fall under the nut category?

      1. I’m great Jenni – thanks for asking – hope 2016 is an awesome year for you. Thanks for the alternate oil suggestions – I want to make this for family members that have nut allergies so these sound really good – I have a Persian organic lime olive oil I think I may use keeping with the citrus theme.
        Take care and thanks again.

        1. Hi Jenny! Thank you for this recipe, but I’m little bit confused-picture sad 3 Tbsp macadamia oil and recipe sad 2 tbsp. Which one is correct? Thanks again

        2. I Made this recipe Jenni, my feet/heels are very happy.
          Thank you 😊
          I have made several more of your recipes already.
          My next one to do is the anti aging cleanser..
          Thanks again..🥥🍯🥕🌹
