Begin by soaking feet in a warm footbath with a few drops of an essential oil like Lavender. Then smooth feet with a file or pumice stone and/or vigorously massage them with a scrub to exfoliate the dead skin. Next generously apply our hand cream and cover your feet in protective cotton socks to help the balm absorb. Apply the hand cream morning and night. And repeat the footbath with scrub throughout the week until heels become softened. Who ever said you can’t put hand cream on your feet?
