Have you pulled out your sandals yet? It’s finally warm enough here in Michigan to wear flip flops and other strappy sandals. That means it’s time for my annual ritual to help get my feet presentable again. Usually that consists of a nice long soak in warm water, followed by exfoliation and a thick layer of lotion. This year I decided to try my hand at making my own shea butter foot balm.
This recipe yields a balm that is SO thick and creamy. For the absolute best results slather some on and pull on a pair of clean white cotton socks before bed. In the morning, your feet will be super soft.
This video walks you through the simple process of making your own soothing foot balm. I put out two new videos each week, so hop over and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss any of the fun!
This foot balm also makes an amazing homemade gift, either for Teacher Appreciation Week or Mother’s Day. If you really want to up the ante combine this balm with some relaxing Peppermint Foot Soak Bombs.
