The balm won't rid your feet of pain, nor does it claim to. But it can give your feet some much needed TLC. My ritual works like this: coat feet generously in Badger Foot Balm, put on socks to help the balm absorb, and elevate feet if need. The balm creates a very slight cooling effect. If I leave the socks on overnight, and wake up with super soft, moisturized feet.
The cooling effect feels nice on blisters, if I happen to get any of those from my winter boots. I'm not sure if it helped them heal or not, but after doing the balm and socks routine overnight, my blisters heal enough that they don't hurt anymore. Not to mention, this product would be amazing if you have cracked dry skin on your heels or ankles. Luckily I didn't have that problem this winter, but I know how irritating it can be! I can also see myself using this frequently in the summer to keep my feet smooth and sandal ready. And who's to say it's just for feet? It works on sore legs nicely as well.
The texture of the balm feels very similar to the original Badger Balm, and based on the ingredients it appears to have the same base. This balm is like Badger Balm's cooler, peppermint cousin.
