I really like winter but it brings a few skin inconveniences. Unless you belong to the lucky few, you probably know what I’m talking about when I say words like “chapped”, “scaly” and “heels”. Basically nothing worked for me (unless you count waiting for spring to come) until I started mixing this ointment for dry chapped heels. And my heels look human again;)
I tried so many creams and wraps, high quality oils and butters but nothing worked. Then I tried the Neutrogena cream for chapped hands and that was the first thing that made any difference (here goes a completely unpaid promotion!). However, it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t think of mixing my own thing, something 100% natural.
Before we start, I have to tell you one thing: this ointment smells really…strong. That’s the neem oil in it and it’s basically like creaming your feet with smelly cheese. However, it’s so worth it and you’ll notice the difference almost immediatelly. Moreover, the neem oil is a miracle in fighting funghi and mold.

How to Make the Ointment for Dry Chapped Heels
Place all the ingredients in a cup and melt them in a water bath. Mix them a little, let the mixture cool down and pour it into the container.
Let it cool down completely and put it in the fridge for a while so the ointment can solidify.
How to Use the Ointment
Use the ointment after a bath or shower and preferably at night. Put a generous amount of the ointment on the chapped area and put on some old socks. Old because they will smell like the neem oil (however, it will wash off). Give your feet this treatment over night or at least for a few hours and as often as you want.
