Eucalyptus Foot Lotion
The feet are very often neglected when it comes to moisturizing, and the skin can easily become cracked. Rubbed regularly into the heels and feet, this lotion will soften the skin.
1 tablespoon almond oil
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 teaspoon wheat-germ oil
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil
Put all of the ingredients in a small, sterilized glass bottle with a tight-fitting stopper. Shake the liquid vigorously until it is completely combined. Store the bottle in a cool, dark place. Shake well before using.
