What’s in This CBD Foot Cream?
Candelilla Wax – Using candelilla wax in this recipe makes this foot cream recipe vegan. You may use beeswax instead of candelilla wax at a 1:1 ratio if you have it. This helps the balm stay together.
Cocoa Butter – Cocoa butter makes this foot cream smell like a chocolate goodness, as well as its hydrating properties. Using cocoa butter will help to make your feet smooth and not crack!
Coconut Oil – Coconut oil may even help inflammation, which is why your feet hurt! This, paired with our CBD oil and peppermint oil? Fantastic!
Jojoba Oil – Jojoba oil is also an anti inflammatory. So definitely use this if possible. If not, you can substitute it for sweet almond oil.

What to Look For in a CBD Foot Cream
Whether you choose to make your own or buy a CBD foot cream, there are some essential things to look for.
First and foremost, you want to start off with a high-quality CBD oil and carrier oil. The better quality the CBD oil, the better results you may see.
It never hurts to research the CBD oil that you plan to use, CBD products are largely unregulated in the United States, this doesn’t mean it doesn’t work, it does mean that many labels can be misleading!
Another thing to consider is the amount of CBD that is in your product. In this recipe, we use a 60ml bottle of CBD oil with 600mg of CBD; this means that there are 10 milligrams of CBD in each milliliter of oil.
We recommend starting with a low dose of CBD oil and increasing it slowly until you reach your desired results.

Another thing to consider is the quality of ingredients in your cream.
We only use natural ingredients and essential oils in our DIY recipes which means you get the best quality delivered straight to your skin!
If you are purchasing a pre-made CBD foot cream, we highly encourage you to look closely at the ingredients as well as what CBD products are in it, and if you have any questions, call the manufacturer.
How to shop for a CBD foot cream
Just because CBD products are readily available, it doesn’t make them effective or even safe.
It’s important to look for products from reputable brands that are transparent about where they grow their hemp and how they make their products.
Look for current and comprehensive COAs from independent and verified third-party labs. This is the best way to ensure that a CBD product is free of contaminants and that it matches the potency labeled on the container.
If you’re looking for a CBD foot cream specifically to relieve pain, ingredients like menthol and eucalyptus may offer additional cooling relief.
Consider whether a cooling or warming sensation is preferable to you, and look at labels to see what a product offers.
Safety and side effects
While CBD is generally considered safe, it’s not unusual to experience some side effects, including:
- changes in appetite or weight
It’s a good idea to speak with a doctor before trying CBD products, especially if you’re currently taking any medications. CBD may interact with some medications.
