Nobody enjoys dealing with calluses. Despite being an unsightly issue, it is also painful and quite difficult to endure in the summer. When the summer weather hits, we are looking forward to looking our best in our new sandals. However, calluses are preventing us from actually living this lovely season to the fullest. If you have problems with calluses, keep reading because in this article you will find how to bring happy feet back with a homemade balm.
Thus, the ingredients you will need to prepare this homemade balm for your calluses are:
– 2 tablespoons of refined coconut oil
– 2 tablespoons of natural beeswax pastilles
– 1 1/2 tablespoons of sunflower oil
– a half tablespoon of camelina seed oil
– 1 teaspoon of turmeric root powder
– 10 drops tea tree essential oil
– 12 drops chamomile essential oil
– 12 drops lavender essential oil
All you have to do is melt the ingredients, starting with a combination of coconut oil and beeswax. Melt these first 2 ingredients in a double boiler. After you melt them completely add the turmeric root powder and mix very well to incorporate it with the liquids.
Then, remove the mixture from the heat and start adding the essential oils. Stir again to also incorporate them to the mixture. That’s it. When they are fully mixed together, let the mixture cool off for a few minutes. After the time is up, simply transfer the mixture into a glass container. You can store these in a cool place to use whenever you need it.
The best time to apply this homemade balm would be after a shower, a bath or a foot soak and after you exfoliate the heels with a pumice stone. That’s how you get the best results from this balm even from the first 2-3 applications.
