best foot cream!!!!

Post by jacqueline » Sat Mar 24, 2007 6:05 pm

What is the absolute favorite cream/lotion you use for your clients feet? I always like to use something that feels marvelous and smells good too...I tried the kephra foot balm..it smells good and all, but still want to try something else too? :smt006

I like Natural Formulations Tea Tree Foot Creme'.

Ditto on that one.

I just got Nectarine Foot and Leg Lotion from www.themassageclinic.com I just started using it a few days ago, so far I really really like it. It has a nice peppermint/tea tree scent. I enjoy it.

bon vital's is really nice. i think it may take a few more clients to know for sure but it smells really great and it goes a long way.

i also really like aveda's foot relief cream. i've used soho - it's alright. also raw earth - it's ok too.

What about making your own footcream to use on clients? I love to make things like that and I think it gives your clients a personal touch, keeping different scents on hand sounds like a good idea and lots of fun:-)

I use different blends like lavender and chamomile for relaxing, geranium and lemon for energizing. Those are the only big ones that I have tried. I am just going to be a student starting in the fall but I found these aromatherapy combinations to be best.

I make my own foot cream

Post by PegasusMT » Tue Mar 27, 2007 3:14 pm

I make my own foot cream, a whipped Shea butter with Peppermint essential oil. It warms in your hands easily and is just delicious. So far everyone loves it! A tiny bit goes a very long way and it is great for dry cracked feet.

I don't mind at all :) If you need any help with making it, feel free to PM me.

I am actually in the research/sampler stage of creating my own Bath & Body company. Creating lots of whipped body butters, body polishes, sugar scrubs, bath salts and bath bombs. :D I love it!

I LOVE the Creative Cucumber Heel Cream http://www.creativenail.com/prod_c_natu ... erheel.asp and their Raw Earth Foot Rub is great too. Actually the whole Raw Earth range http://www.creativenail.com/prod_c_natu ... wearth.asp of soak, scrub, mask, rub is great. The scrub heats up when you add water, calcium something does it. Clients love it. You can customise the Raw Earth range with your own essential oils, it's specifically created with a gender neutral fragrance you can add to. Retail opportunities abound with this range :) Professional sizes are available.

I'm a fan of shea butter as well; there's nothing that works as well on dry cracked feet!

100% Shea Butter

Post by sandyrose » Wed Apr 18, 2007 1:02 pm

Well I'm still a student but I've been doing lots of practicing on my family and friends! I love making up little spa-type treatment to go with the massage. I've been doing a foot moisturizing treatment that they all love. I use 100% Shea Butter (refined) I mix in a little essential oil in the shea butter too.

I massage the feet and slather on the shea butter really thick. The I wrap the feet in ace bandages. Then I put their feet in microwave warming booties for the length of the massage. No matter how dry and cracked their feet were, the shea butter absorbs and softens them beautifully. No one could believe it! I don't think I'll ever use anything else.
