Badger Foot Balm

One of the items I bought on my visit to Badger was their Foot Balm.  This had been on my wishlist so I knew I had to buy it.  If you know me well, you know I have very sore problematic flat feet.  I can't wear fancy high heels.  I have trouble walking a lot.  I get very sore and tired out but I push on through as best as I can.  My feet and I have had a love/hate relationship in the past.  It was very hard to feel so limited compared to others my age but now I appreciate my feet for what they do for me.  They work hard and they get me where I need to go.

I tend to live in either sneakers with orthotics or Birkenstocks.  I do have some other shoes but these are my day to day shoes.  Anyone who wears either of these knows that they can be a bit rough on the skin of your feet.  They support my feet but I also tend to get some callouses and rough spots and with a large amount of walking I can get blisters on my callouses. Hence, my desire to try out the Badger Foot Balm.

I enjoy pampering my feet on my own.  I have never really liked getting pedicures.  I think my feet are too sensitive.  I don't mind a nice foot rub though.  I always paint my toenails so I want my feet to look and feel soft and moisturized.

Last night, I applied a bunch of Badger Foot Balm to my feet.  I did one foot at a time.  I got a decent amount of the product on my hand and then massaged it into my feet.  I paid close attention to apply extra to the really roughed up spots like my heels, fallen arches and big toes.   Once my feet felt fully coated, not too much or too little, I put ankle socks on and wore them to bed.

You can feel the natural oils, it feels very smooth on.  Not like a lotion or cream but like a balm that melts into your skin as it warms to the touch.  The smell isn't as minty as you might expect.  I found the aroma very soothing which was nice before bed. 

Today,  my feet feel so soft!  I had a really bad callous on one of my arches and it feels much smoother and nicer as though it is finally healing. My skin was so rough yesterday that parts would catch on my clothes if I tried to change how I was sitting and felt scratchy if it rubbed against my leg, yucky!  My toes feel soft, my heels look and feel much better.  I am so happy with this purchase!  Gotta love a great natural product like this.  Simply apply it and keep it on with little socks and your feet will thank you for it!
