Simple Scent Free Foot Cream 2


I love foot creams! I think my favorite evening ritual is to apply a foot cream to my feet, put on my socks and head to bed. While I wear wool socks during most of the day and evening (as well as year round), my feet still can get a little scraggly if I forget to apply foot cream. I decided to formulate a foot cream and worry about the texture rather than the scent or other additives. This recipe is my attempt at keeping it simple.

I started by choosing oils that I like in foot creams. I chose Lanolin because it is very good at creating a barrier to keep moisture from leaving the skin and it really helps my feet feel like a million bucks!

I selected Shea and Macadamia Butters because I think they feel luxurious on the skin and contribute a creamy feel that is wonderful to massage onto the skin.

I didn’t want to make the foot cream too heavy, so I added some Peach Kernel Oil to lighten up the texture a little, as well as add a slight velvety finish to the foot cream.

Weigh all ingredients except the Liquid Germall Plus into a microwave safe container. Heat in the microwave using short time bursts until everything is melted. Blend the ingredients to a smooth, creamy consistency using the immersion blender. Add the Liquid Germall Plus once the temperature drops to approximately 120° F in the mixing bucket. Stir gently until completely mixed. Pour into containers and allow to cool completely before labeling.

Foot Cream Notes: This is a mid-weight foot cream that is a massaging style foot cream and leaves the skin feeling velvety. This cream makes my feet feel really good when the cream applied thickly and my feet are massaged. I think I use about 5 grams (0.2 ounces) per foot, so I think this is a perfect cream to sit on the nightstand in an 8 ounce jar! Can I say that I love this because my feet feel super soft?

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    Great recipe! Thanks so much for sharing it. Especially in these times, people should start thinking about making stuff at home (including foot cream) 🙂
