We love the nature and appreciate it for providing us with plenty of resources to be used whenever is needed. So in return, we do our best to protect it, use only what we need and help it to flourish year after year.
The process of preparing the foot cream started in the beginning of spring when the first green leaves of plantain were so happy to show up in our back yard and garden. We were also happy to see them, especially after the long winter we experienced this year! We even walked around them to not disturb their growing process.
The wild grown plantain leaves were harvested on a sunny day from our organically grown land, and after being cleaned and slightly dried were ready to be infused in oil.
In a second jar, we prepared oil maceration from organic calendula flowers that were out-sourced as harvesting season was to start later in the summer, but usually calendula is a ray of sunshine in our garden.
So, for the next 8 weeks both infusion jars enjoyed capturing the energy from the sun and the moon and worked their wonders to extract all goodness from the plants. From time to time we were shaking them a little bit to ensure all plants particles are well covered by the golden oil.
When the maceration was ready, the plantain oil infusion turned into a nice green-yellowish color, and the second one, the calendula infusion, into a golden-orange oil having a slightly viscous consistence.
To create the foot cream we used a cold blend method, in which no heat is used to mix the ingredients. By doing that all the natural properties of the organic and raw ingredients we used making the cream remained un-altered for our skin to benefit from it.
So, the next step is for you to apply the foot cream gently and generously to your cleaned heels, elbows, knees and feet at bedtime and in the morning to have a soft, moisturized and well nourished looking skin.
