Although they potentially work the hardest, our poor old feet sometimes get neglected in the self-love department, which is why I’m sharing this nourishing Hand & Heel Treatment.
This cream is a rich, intense moisture boost that I apply to my feet just before bed, and then lock in with socks for some extra nourishment. Believe me when I say you will wake up with feet as soft as a baby’s bottom and smelling seriously delicious.
40g Coconut Oil
10g Fractionated Coconut Oil
5g Evening Primrose Oi
10 Drops of Essential Oil (optional)
- Combine coconut oil, beeswax, fractionated coconut oil and honey in a glass bowl and heat until completely melted. You can do this in a thermomix (5 minutes, speed 1 at 70 degrees) or in the microwave in short burst monitoring not to burn the ingredients.
- Add remainder of ingredients and stir to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed.
- As the cream starts to set vigorously mix the cream, this will help fluff up the mixture. If you are using a thermomix, insert butterfly whisk and wait for the cream to partially set in the thermomix bowl. When the cream has partially set whip for 30 seconds on speed 4.
- Transfer to jar to store.
In house tip; I like to use restorative oils such as frankincense, lavender, myrrh for this recipe.
Apply a generous amount of cream to clean dry skin and massage in. Wear socks or gloves to allow the treatment to nourish overnight.
