Summertime can really be hard on your feet. You might wear sandals or flip flops often, and it can help dry out your feet, leaving them feel dry and cracked! I have laid in bed and went to rub my feet together, and it felt like sandpaper. That is not a good feeling, and if you have ever been in that situation you might benefit from this tip! Below is how to use essential oils for dry cracked heels! It is a great way to soothe your feet and get them feeling nice and smooth in no time!
Follow this step by step method, and you will find that your feet are feeling refreshed! Repeat as needed to keep your feet feeling silky soft all year round!
Essential Oils to Fix Dry Cracked Heels
- First you need to fill a tub or basin with some warm water. Then toss in some Epsom salt (follow directions as to how much to use as listed on package) and 5 drops of peppermint oil and 2 drops of Eucalyptus oil. Soak your feet for around 15-20 minutes.
- Take your feet out of the bath and dry them well.
- Once feet are dry take your foot scraper and gently work over areas that have a buildup of skin. Scrape the skin until the skin feels smooth. If the spot is tender, than don’t rub on it, because it could irritate it more.
- Next apply essential oils to your feet, to help even more. I will list that below.
Peppermint Oil: Peppermint oil is great for adding nourishment to the skin. The menthol can create a soothing effect to your skin!
Eucalyptus Oil: This is great for killing any viruses and bacteria that could be lingering on your feet. Sometimes cracked heels are caused by bacteria.
Foot Treatment and Essential Oil
In the morning and evening apply 3-5 drops of peppermint oil topically, with Virgin Coconut Oil, and wear socks. This will help heal up and add moisture into your feet! You need to be consistent with this, or it will not fully heal up. If you feel that you have any bacteria, add a drop or two of Eucalyptus as well the Peppermint oil, and it will work even better!
