Foot creams are a luxury most of us look past often in favor of the face or hands. These foot cream recipes will give your tired, cracked, neglected feet the love they deserve without spending a fortune.

Why You Need These Foot Cream Recipes

One of the areas of the body that often gets overlooked is the feet. People often forget to take good care of their feet, ignoring the rough, callused edges.

However, if you want to have soft, beautiful feet, then a foot cream might be in order. These foot cream recipes are all natural, many of which use quality extra virgin coconut oil along with essential oils for scent and healing properties.

A foot cream, though often forgotten in your beauty regimen, will add a feel of luxury to your day as if you’ve been to a spa. Foot creams may also benefit your overall health when using quality ingredients and essentials oils as in these recipes to penetrate the skin.

Peppermint Foot Cream Recipe

This is definitely one of the more popular foot cream recipes. It can be made with olive or coconut oil. Peppermint, in general, is often used with foot creams because it has a strong, delightful scent.

A good peppermint essential oil is great for deodorizing your feet and helping the fresh smell to last a lot longer.

For this DIY foot cream, you want to use coconut oil in its solid form, aloe vera gel, and peppermint essential oil. You can also add in other essential oils, but be careful about combining too many different scents together.

You just need to whip the ingredients together to get a cream consistency, then make sure you store it properly in an airtight glass container.

Shea Butter and Beeswax Foot Cream

This foot cream recipe uses additional luxurious ingredients that provide even more softness and moisture for your feet. It includes adding some shea butter, which is so soft on your skin, and beeswax that is grated.

Blend half cup each of your shea butter and beeswax with 1 TBS coconut oil along with a few drops of your favorite essential oils.

Vanilla and Sweet Orange essential oils are really good scents for this foot cream recipe, but as with many other foot creams, you can also add in a few drops of peppermint essential oils.

If you suffer from foot or toe fungus, you can use an antimicrobial oil in this recipe such as tea tree essential oil to help. 

Coconut Lavender Foot Cream

If you want a foot cream that not only moisturizes your feet, but can also provide a relaxing and soothing experience, lavender is the perfect option.

To make this foot cream, start with your coconut oil, usually a couple tablespoons of it, then add about ½ cup of olive oil.

Combine this in a bowl with the same amount of beeswax pastilles, and add in as many drops of lavender essential oil as you want. You should start with 5 drops, mix it, then smell it to see if it is strong enough. Add about 5 drops at a time until you’re happy.

For this much cream, 15-20 is usually enough.

You can also make a plain foot cream that just uses coconut oil with something cream-based like mango butter or cocoa butter. Or you can whip the oil by itself to make a creamy consistency, then apply it to your feet.

Foot Healing Remedy for Dry, Cracked Heels

Are you suffering from dry feet with cracked heels? This essential oil blend for cracks in heels will help to heal your suffering. You can use the oil by itself to massage your feet or blend it with some cocoa butter to make a healing foot cream. 

  • 1/8 cup jojoba or coconut oil
  • 7 drops lavender oil
  • 3 drops ylang ylang oil
  • 2 drops peppermint oil

Natural pedicure time! This is how you heal cracked heals naturally. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Rub into clean, freshly scrubbed feet.

All the better if you have started with a good warm foot soak and applied a pumice stone to remove the first layer of dead skin from heels, toes, and other problem areas. Best time for this cracked heel remedy is before bed, so that the oils can soak in overnight for healing, soothing relief while your body is at rest.

Storing Your Foot Cream Recipe

The shelf life for your DIY foot cream recipe is about 6 weeks when stored at room temperature in an air-tight container. The downside to homemade foot cream products with all-natural ingredients is that you need to use them up quickly since there are no preservatives. 

This is a plus for your skin and health however so a great reason to make your own beauty products.
