Foot Balm

This was so much fun to make!  And it’s pure heaven on the feet!  What went into the foot balm you ask?  A bunch of luxurious ingredients! That’s what.

Ingredients:  Shea Butter, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil, Fragrance Oil (optional Dry Flo AF)

Note: This balm is oily and heavy (it’s meant to nourish your feet!).  I’d suggest putting socks on after using this because you will “slide” a bit.  If you don’t like the thick oily feel Dry Flo AF can be added to this recipe to reduce the oily-ness and impart a drier powdery feel.

Dry Flo AF is a modified corn starch.

The balm took a little bit more work to make.  First we had to weight out the solid ingredients then melt them.

Once they were melted we then added the other liquid ingredients.  The cool liquids going into the warm oils creates a cool solid effect.

Once everything was mixed (and melted) all together we added the fragrance oil.  I chose to do the same fragrance as  the foot scrub (White Citrus) but Audry used Vanilla Verbena and I have to say that fragrance is awesome too!  And it pairs with White Citrus REALLY well!  Once the oils are all mixed it’s time to pour it into our container.  I used a nice glass jar.

Then once you let it cool, it’s all ready to use!

I added pretty labels after it cooled to make my scrub and balm look like a set!
