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.

Recipe: (Makes 3.53 ounces or 100 grams)
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?
