Below are some DIY home remedies for practicing the best foot care:

  • 6 drops of Tea Tree essential oil to treat fungal infections, while invigorating mind and body.
  • 5 drops of Lavender essential oil to minimize skin irritation.
  • 2 drops of Frankincense essential oil for treating mature, dry skin. Great for healing scars.

*Mix ingredients together. Wash feet thoroughly, then massage the oil into your feet for 2-3 minutes.
