DIY Heel Butter

Are your heels dry and cracked like mine?  Mine are so rough that I often joke about using them for sanding wood instead of using sandpaper.

I have used this heel butter with wonderful results.  My sandpaper heels became soft and smooth with repeated use.  I have actually taken an old pair of socks and cut off the toes.  Before bed, I apply my heel butter and put on my toe-less socks to help the butter not rub off.  If you’re a sock-wearing-to-bed kind of person, then you don’t have to worry about cutting the toe off.

You can also add your favorite essential oils for added effects.  Lavender is soothing, any of the citrus oils are invigorating, geranium is great for skin, and peppermint has a cooling effect.
