Our feet are some of the hardest working areas of our bodies—and some of the most porous. While this makes them a great spot for applying essential oils, it can also leave them thirsty for moisture. Treat your feet! Give them the best of both worlds with this easy and luxurious recipe for a DIY Nighttime Essential Oil Foot Cream. Including the ultimately relaxing aromas of Vetiver oil, Lavender oil, Eucalyptus oil, and Roman Chamomile oil, it’ll be a cinch to turn your evening routine into a night of rich, moisturizing pampering. SUPPLIES
- Combine all ingredients, except essential oils, in a heat-proof bowl or jar and place in a saucepan with a few inches of boiling water to create a double boiler.
- Stir the ingredients gradually until melted, then remove container from the head and add essential oils. Mix well.
- Pour mixture into a ½-sized mason jar or divide into cosmetic tins to cool and store.
- Massage a small amount into your feet at bedtime to moisturize.
Applying moisturizers before bed not only helps your skin to absorb and retain hydration, but it’s the perfect time to indulge in the pleasures of peaceful essential oil aromas. Besides, what feels better than slipping into your sheets with soft, smooth feet before bed?
