3.Oil Your Feet at Night
I treated a client with a very simple formula of natural goodness, and I am going to share it with you.
Oil your feet at night with a mixture of the following-
Two tsp castor oil
Two tsp olive oil
Two tsp almond oil
Massage these oils on your feet (this should be done at night). Smear Vaseline into the cracks of your feet, see that it is absorbed into them very well. Melt a candle in a saucepan on a gentle flame. Use a flat brush and carefully apply to the skin. Let this cool and dry. Wear cotton socks and cover.
Leave overnight. Next day in the morning peel off from the skin and rub any remaining residue into the skin.
