Often home remedies are the best remedies even for tough and troublesome problems such as cracked heels. Here is how to deal with them from the comfort of your own bedroom.
You will need:
½ cup of sugar
¼ cup of olive oil (can be substituted with cocoa butter)
Juice of 1 lemon
A few drops of aromatic oil – vanilla, mint, lavender, sandalwood, orange or rose.
One glass jar
Mix sugar and olive oil in the jar and add lemon juice and oils. Tightly close the jar and shake well. Make sure to shake before each use, because the sugar sinks to the bottom.
This scrub is very useful for cracked heels, rough elbows and dry knee skin. Apply to heels with a foot brush. For elbows and knees use a soft cotton cloth.
