Handy Equipment for DIY projects like this homemade foot balm
When making this foot ointment and any other DIY beauty project like this whipped body butter that requires you to melt ingredients together, you'll need to melt all the ingredients in a double boiler so this is an inexpensive investment that will make your life much easier.
Ingredients for your homemade foot ointment
You'll want to use organic ingredients when possible. You will be absorbing the ingredients into your body through your skin - our largest organ. You do not want to be absorbing harmful preservatives and synthetic ingredients which can disrupt hormones, and cause all kinds of health issues.
The Tea Tree Essential oil adds extra benefits for your skin and toenails. It can help with unsightly toenails and is wonderful for your skin - it can help anyone who suffers from scaling, inflammation, itching and burning.
You can substitute Peppermint Essential Oil in place of the Tea Tree essential oil, and you'll have a really wonderful cooling balm that feels fantastic on tired feet.

Benefits and Uses of Tea Tree Essential Oil
More commonly known as “Tea Tree,” Melaleuca essential oil has over 92 different compounds and limitless applications. It is considered one of the "Top 10" essential oils.
The leaves of the Melaleuca tree have been used by the Aboriginal peoples of Australia for centuries. They would apply crushed leaves directly to the skin for a cooling effect.
Tea Tree, also known as Melaleuca, is best known for its purifying properties. It can be used to cleanse and purify the skin and nails and to support a healthy complexion.
Taken internally, Melaleuca promotes healthy immune function.*
Melaleuca is frequently used on occasional skin irritations to soothe the skin and diffusing Melaleuca will help purify and freshen the air.
- For occasional skin irritations, apply 1–2 drops of Melaleuca essential oil onto affected area.
- Add 1–2 drops to water, citrus drinks, or veggie caps to support healthy immune system function.*
- Combine 1–2 drops with your facial cleanser for added cleansing properties, or apply to skin after shaving.
- Apply to fingernails and toenails after showering to purify and keeps nails looking healthy.
- Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces to protect against environmental threats.
When choosing essential oils to use for your DIY projects, be sure you are choosing a high quality, TRUE essential oil and not one that is fragrance only as so many from the drug stores are. I choose to use doTERRA essential oils. They are the purest, highest quality and only brand I use.
