To make feet feel extra good, get a hand towel and soak it in water. Ring the water out and place in microwave till warm (30-50 seconds). Wrap the warm towel around oily feet and stick in a bag or bowl to contain the mess while you relax.

Thanks for this recipe so I can make my own diy foot cream. I recently switched to using eco-friendly products, clothes, food and everything that does not harm nature! This is very important, because we pollute the planet very much, and if we continue, by 2038 there will be a global water shortage and not only this!
