Why Use Foot Balm?
1. Reduces the risks of soggy feet: Wet feet are an inevitable condition for long distance hiking. Rain, stream crossing or lots of sweat and humidity can lead to wrinkled up and soggy feet. Foot balm is known to act as a barrier to prevent moisture from being absorbed into your feet. Less moisture = less likelihood of tender and tearing feet.
2. Prevents Chafing: One of the main benefits to using foot balm while hiking is its ability to aide in decreasing friction in your shoes. Friction can occur when your socks or sock seams rub against your feet, or if your feet begin sweating and moisture gets trapped. When you apply a coating of foot balm, it acts as an extra layer of protection against chafing.
3. Heals cracked heels & feet: Along with being an added layer of protection in your boots, foot balm also has many beneficial factors that can help the skin and overall well-being of your foot. It’s provides a healthy level of moisture that is commonly loaded with essential oils and vitamins. When a layer of foot balm is applied, these oils and vitamins nourish and condition calluses and repair cracked heels. A side benefit is that they can also make your feet smell heavenly (a luxury on the trail).
Where to Apply
You can apply foot balm to specific hot spot areas or to your entire foot like a lotion. Doing the latter can help reduce odor, stop antibacterial buildup, and moisturize all at the same time.Applying a generous amount directly to your feet before going to bed, putting on a pair of socks, and letting the balm soak in overnight is perfect too
How to Apply
1. Wash and dry your feet. The balm will work better on damp, clean feet, as this will help the moisture of the balm set in better.
2. Take about a quarter-sized glob of balm using your fingers
3. Rub the foot balm on the skin

Seaweed helps sensitive skin problems – the natural minerals contained in seaweed, which include omega, zinc and magnesium, create a barrier to protect skin from harsh weather (or overly dry environments) while helping to heal skin of any infections.
