I’ve tried the gimmicks. It seems that no matter what I try, unless it’s an ultra-strength steroid ointment, my hands are always breaking out in eczema or peeling and cracking. And don’t get me started on my feet-yikes! If you’re in the same boat, check out what I have found to work, and maybe it’ll be just what you’ve been looking for!
I come back to it time and time again when making new recipes-the Spark Naturals Base Salve. Why do I love it? 1-I don’t have to buy a million different bulk ingredients to only use a fraction of them, and 2-it’s such a convenient size and so easy to work with! I have made about 10 different salves with it, and today is no exception. Lemon, Frankincense and Myrrh have been used in healing for generations, and Copaiba is great for pain and enhancing the properties of oils it is combined with, which makes them the perfect oils for this DIY salve.
First, double boiler fashion, set the open base salve in a small amount of simmering water. You don’t want the temperature too high-just enough to liquify the salve and keep all of it’s healing properties in tact.
Lastly, set aside to cool. When ready, apply 1-2 times a day (typically after your morning shower and right before bed). Rub into feet first, and rub excess into hands.
That’s it! If used consistently, hopefully you’ll start feeling relief within a few days. Let us know if you’ve tried this or anything similar-we want to hear all about it!
