5 Effective Home Remedies for Cracked Heels

1. For Soft Heels

You can make this wonderful concoction to soak your feet in daily for soft heels.

1 tub of warm soapy water
100 ml seed oil
A handful of marbles
500 ml full fat milk
A handful of rose petals
A handful of fresh margosa/neem leaves
5 drops geranium oil
5 drops sandalwood oil
2 tsp wheatgerm oil

Mix everything together and soak your feet in this water for about 20 minutes and pat dry. Use a pumice stone to dislodge dead skin on the heels.

2. Sea Salt and Oatmeal Scrub

Make the following scrub and use it daily while bathing.

1 cup oatmeal
100 ml almond oil
100 gms sea salt
100 gms honey
100 gms rice powder
10 drops juniper oil
10 drops peppermint oil

Mix all the ingredients well and store in an air tight jar. Use a loofah and scrub daily on our feet. Not only will it help dislodge dirt and grime but also soften dead skin and start to make the skin smoother and crack free.

3. Oil Your Feet at Night 

I treated a client with a very simple formula of natural goodness and I am going to share it with you.

Oil you feet at night with a mixture of the following-

2 tsp castor oil
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp almond oil

Massage these oils on your feet (this should be done at night). Smear Vaseline into the cracks of your feet, see that it is absorbed into them very well. Melt a candle in a saucepan on a gentle flame. Use a flat brush and carefully apply to the skin. Let this cool and dry. Wear cotton socks and cover.
Leave overnight. Next day in the morning peel off from the skin and rub any remaining residue into the skin.

4. Quick Remedy: Lime + Sugar

A daily 5-minute routine that you can do is to take lemon halves and 3 tsp of sugar. Dip the lemon halves into the sugar and scrub on the heels daily until all the granules have melted into the skin. Let it dry and wash off with water and pat dry.

5. Home pedicure

Most people do not realize that a home pedicure will also work miracles for cracked heels. Gear yourself with the following-

Two large towels
Nail brush
Pumice stone
Loofah
Nail file
Buffer
Sponge
Essential oil of ylang ylang- 5drops
Warm soapy water
500ml full fat warm milk
20ml olive oil
Nourishing cream

File the nails and soak your feet into a tub of warm water and milk and add essential oil along with olive oil. Brush nails and clean them well. Using a pumice stone scrub heels until soft and smooth. With a sponge apply nourishing tub water to the legs upto the knees and on the top and soles of the feet.

Pat dry and massage with a nourishing cream and wipe dry. Buff the nails until smooth and shiny and your feet will be ready to dance! Spending five minutes daily to take care of your feet can go a long way.
