A hydrating treatment for the toughest feet.
After making my own foot butter…I will never buy it again.
- 100% natural
and an excellent treat for your feet…especially this time of year!
- 4 ounces (approximately 1/2 cup) shea butter
- 1 ounce (approximately 2 tablespoons) avocado oil
- 3/4 ounce (approximately 4 1/2 teaspoons) all-natural beeswax, grated or roughly chopped
- 2 tablespoons lanolin
- 1 1/2 teaspoons non-GMO vitamin E oil

- In a small pot — over low heat — melt shea butter, avocado oil, beeswax, and lanolin.
- Stir frequently.
- Remove from heat and add vitamin E oil and essential oils. Stir well to distribute oils throughout mixture.
- Pour into tins or jars.
- Let cool on counter until hardened.
*This recipe makes enough for approximately 6-1 oz. tins or three 2 oz. glass jars. I also love to clean and reuse any and all glass jars!

To create an ultra-rich, antibacterial blend of essential oils, I like to combine ::
- menthol blend :: lavender, peppermint, and tea tree
- grounded blend :: fir, cypress, ylang ylang, cedarwood, juniper berry, and vetiver
To use :: Massage a small amount into feet or other part of body in need of a refreshing and nourishing uplift.

Wonderful! I could definitely use some relief…and it’s only the *beginning* of winter!
Right! Well this stuff is super awesome:) I hope you LOVE it!
Hi! How would you describe the consistency of the foot balm? Is it medium or hard when you grab son to apply? Thanks in advance.
This will work great for my boyfriend’s contractor hands too! Love it! Thanks for posting =)

Hi…I just wanted to let you know how helpful I have found your blog. I make loads of stuff from our recipes ~ They work and they keep us fro using so many commercial products. Thanks again!

I’m eager to try this today. Do you think there’s any harm in leaving out the lanolin? Only reason is because we’re having a snow storm and I don’t want to go out and get the only ingredient I’m missing. 🙂 Overnight, my 4 yr old boy’s knuckles are bleeding from dryness! 🙁 🙁 I feel like such a horrible mom! But I’m gonna get cookin’ today. Thanks for the great recipe, Andrea. Love your recipes, website and service.
I am definitely taking advantage of this! Thanks for sharing!
What a great idea! I want to make some this year for the mail lady. Her feet deserve it!
This is a great idea for year round gifts. I bet the kids would even enjoy making this!
The wind has been kicking butt’s and taking names. I’m sure the whole population of this area can use some of that butter.
Can you leave the lanolin out? I’m allergic and it would be nice to have a vegetarian/vegan option.
