Emu heel balm

6 teaspoons emu oil
1 teaspoon lanolin
2 teaspoons avocado butter
2 teaspoons beeswax
7 drops ylang ylang essential oil
20 drops orange essential oil
.1 millileter Germaber II-E (optional)

Blending Procedure:
Combine all ingredients except the essential oils and the preservative (if you are using) into a heat safe glass bowl, and place in the bowl into a hot water bath to melt the beeswax and oils. Heat just until the beeswax is nearly melted. Do not overheat. Stir to combine and completely melt the beeswax.
Add the essential oils and the preservative if you are using. Stir to combine.
Place into clean container and allow to cool before capping. Label.
To use, massage generously into feet and heels before bedtime. Sleep in cotton socks for best softening results. Enjoy softer feet!
Note: Emu oil is great for dry and cracked skin but if you'd prefer to use a vegetable based oil, shea butter is an adequate substitute.
