This is the perfect addition to the foot scrub we recently posted. I was looking at the ingredients to my heavy duty foot cream and quickly decided I needed a natural foot balm. I love to put this on my feet at night, with a pair of socks, I wake up to the softest feet!

- 1 tbsp Almond Carrier Oil
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Jojoba Carrier Oil
- 2 tbsp Beeswax
- 10 Drops vitamin E
- 10 Drops each Peppermint, Spearmint, Tea Tree
- 2 1oz Tin Containers
What you’ll do:
- Mix all oils together.
- Over a double boiler melt beeswax.
- Once melted turn off heat, add oil mixture.
- Mix well.
- Pour into 2 1oz containers.

Does anyone know if this is firm enough to but into mini deodorant tubes?
I want to try my own balms and have no idea where to start. This helps me get a start, plus reading the other comments.
Need to try this!!
Can you use any other kind oil in place of the jojoba oil?
Yes, you can absolutely sub for the carrier oil of your choice.
Any other oil recommendations fora nursing mom?
I know peppermint and spearmint aren’t recommended.
Spearmint and Tea Tree are both safe, I would recommend omitting the peppermint and just using the other two oils. Here’s a great blog post with a Pregnancy/Nursing chart for easy reference 🙂 https://www.planttherapy.com/blog/2014/07/16/pregnancy_safe_use_chart/
