If you suffer from dry, cracked heels, you know how painful and unsightly they can be. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to soothe and heal your heels. One of the best methods is to use essential oils.
Shea Butter Australia
Shea butter is a great choice for healing dry, cracked heels. Shea butter is an excellent moisturiser and can help to repair damaged skin. If you live in Australia, we supply raw, organic, shea butter.
Imagine this. You’re finally ready to hop into bed and go to sleep! Your sheets are soft, your skin is moisturised and hydrated, and together there is almost no friction. Except for your heels. The dry skin tugs and scratches at the fibres of your bedding.
During the day, you know you will have to wear heel covered shoes. No sandals of any sort can work when you can’t get the ashiness off of your feet.
This is an ideal recipe for those of us who suffer from dry cracked heels.
Apply to damp skin immediately after showering or bathing. Dispense a small amount of product onto fingertips and massage into the feet using circular motions, paying special attention to heels and other areas of dryness. For best results, follow with Foot Cream.
