oils: Cracked Heels Update

This morning I woke to heels that were definitely much softer, however, I feel that I will need to use a pumice stone to remove some of the dead skin.

Having mobility difficulties will make this impossible so I will need to go to the spa or have someone do it for me.

After getting this done, I would definitely repeat this soak and moisturizer. More to come!

oils: Recipe for Cracked Heels

I can’t be the only one looking for relief from dry, cracked heel this winter. Here is the recipe that I tried this evening:

1. Add 3 drops of each: Rosemary, lemon and lavender, to a warm foot bath. 

2. Soak feet. 

3. Pat dry feet and massage olive, almond or vegetable oil into your heels, followed by a pair of socks, before bed. I used coconut oil. 

I’ll let you know how it works out in the morning!

She Puts A Clothespin On Her Ear For One BRILLIANT Reason. I’m Totally Trying This!

I am not the type of person who runs to the doctor every time I feel a little ache or pain. After all, aches and pains are a part of life. Instead, I prefer to think I have a little more control over my own body, like when trying these pain relief stretches I can do without leaving…
