Soft Beautiful Feet

by Penny Keay

Winter, spring, summer or fall, any season can take its toll on your feet. Having soft touchable skin on your feet is something not everyone is privileged to have, but you can, with daily foot care.

Many people spend hours a day standing on their feet, walking or running. Too many people have ill fitting shoes and before you know it the skin on the ‘rubbed’ areas will develop corns and calluses. Wearing nylon or polyester based fabric can make it worse (cotton is best.)

These extra hardened areas of skin on your feet don’t need to happen. But you need to take care of your feet daily. Not just when you have developed these often times painful foot problems.

Treat your self to a daily or every other day Foot Spa! Simply add some bath salt blend, Epsom salt or Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking soda) to a basin of very warm water. Add some essential oils, Sweet Almond OR Sunflower oil, swish around, sit back and enjoy for 15-20 minutes.

Rinse your feet and dry them well. Apply more oils or lotion or cream. These help to keep the moisture in the layers of skin.

If your skin has become exceptionally callused you may find it will take several weeks for your skin on the feet to become soft and supple. Don’t forget to use a nice terry cloth to wash your feet well and if needed use a pumice stone to remove excessive dead cells.

No one has to have ‘ugly’ feet. You can have beautiful soft feet you can be proud to show off come summer!


Epsom Salt – ¼ cup
Baking Soda – ¼ cup
Peppermint – 1 drop
Geranium – 1 drop
Rosemary– 1 drop
Sweet Almond OR Sunflower oil – 1 teaspoon
Basin of Very Warm Water

Add all ingredients from above, swish around to dissolve the salts. Soak your feet for 15-20 minutes. Rinse, and dry your feet well. Apply lotion or cream once your feet have dried a bit. Put on some soft cotton socks.

Dry Skin Cream Recipe for Hands & Feet

Sorbolene Cream – 2 ounces
Roman Chamomile - 2 drops
Carrotseed – 2 drops
Neroli – 1 drop
Rose Otto – 1 drop

Place the Sorbolene Cream in a small bowl. Make a small depression in the middle of the cream.

Then add the drops of essential oil to the depression. Slowly mix the essential oils into the cream until well blended.

Ideally, mixing these together 24 hours prior to use will give the essential oils a better chance of melding with the cream.

Apply a small amount to face, hands and feet as needed. You only need a small Pea-sized amount for hands or feet and most likely even less for facial applications.
