A couple of months ago a package dropped into my mailbox from the heavens! The angel who sent it is a Truth In Aging member named Laura. I don’t know how she knew I needed it, but she did, which tells me that she really is an earthbound angel! What Laura sent me was a cleverly packaged container of Foot Butter made by the Rocky Mountain Soap Company ($13.49), based in Canada.

I used to put Tea Tree Oil on my feet to help keep them moisturized and free from Athlete’s foot, but I stopped this when Marta posted some cautionary words about Tea Tree and Lavender oil last January. Since then my feet had been suffering from the lack of anything on them until this heavenly butter arrived!

What I love most about this foot butter other than its’ 100% natural ingredients is its’ hands-free application. The butter is in an applicator similar to a solid stick of deodorant. This is really, really clever! Do you know of any other foot balm or butter product in an applicator like this? If you do, please share what you know because the convenience and ease of a stick for the feet is unbeatable. You just pop the top, glide it across the top and bottom of your feet, push the narrow end into the crevices of your toes and you’re done! Your hands remain clean, greaseless and nothing could be easier. I keep the foot butter on the dresser where my socks are stored so I can swipe my feet just minutes before socks go on. After a couple days of use my feet were soft and odor free.

This butter contains only 100% natural ingredients. Beeswax and cocoa butter hydrate, while carrot tissue oil restores moisture and increases elasticity. Lemongrass and grapefruit essential oils have antibacterial and astringent properties to keep fungus away. Fir Needle essential oil helps circulation, muscle aches and has disinfectant properties which makes it a germ killer as well. I’ve never been a big fan of Patchouli, but I am starting to get used to it now with the use of this butter. My husband on the other hand is quite fond of Patchouli. When we’re sitting on the couch together now he’ll comment, “Oh you have Patchouli feet today”. Now, I don’t always have Patchouli feet, but I don’t think he’d object to it if I did.

I love this foot butter so much that I’ve decided to give some of these as Christmas gifts this year. A great unisex gift that even Jimmy might want to consider giving this year? Rocky Mountain Soap Companies’ Foot Butter might be more politically correct to give, if at least more warmly received than Dermalogica’s Environmental Control Deodorant he’s given in previous years. Then again, the priceless look on someone’s face when they open a gift of deodorant, well that might be worth the giving as well!

A huge Thank You to my Truth In Aging sister Laura from Canada!  What an angel you are for finding the Rocky Mountain Soap Company’s Foot Butter for all of us!
