I am excited to show you how a candle can help cure your cracked heels. I know it sounds strange, but it’s true.

A strong moisturizer is not going to cut it for cracked heels. That’s why you have to try this treatment.

Disclaimer: When applied to the skin, turmeric can sometimes cause temporary staining, so please proceed with caution! You may wish to use slightly less turmeric than the recipe recommends.

Best castor oil!

Cutting candle

1. Cut and melt

Take a candle and cut it into small pieces and put them in a pan. 

Melting candle with coconut oil

Add 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and turn on the stove to melt the wax.

Adding turmeric

2. Additional ingredients

Now add some turmeric. ¼ of a teaspoon should do the trick. Pour in 1 teaspoon of castor oil and mix the ingredients well.

Storing mixture

3. Cool and store

Let your mixture cool and put it into a jar. You can store this treatment for up to 1 month.

Applying to feet

4. Application

Wash your feet and apply the treatment to clean dry feet. Apply a thick layer to the heel area and massage it in well. 

Feet in socks

Then put on your socks to help seal in the treatment. Leave it on for a few hours, or overnight.

    Just applied treatment. Thank you so much for the recipe. Turmeric and other ingredients really work well together.

    I am trying it. My heels have become so cracked with old age. Moisturizers nor hydration of any kind seem to help.
