Corns and calluses are areas where the skin has thickened usually due to continual rubbing or pressure in a localized area.  Usually this happens on the feet or hands.  Calluses are more distributed over a larger area where a corn is more localized.  The thick dead skin may cause pressure, especially with a corn, and become very painful.  This is common on the feet and toes.

Tight or loose shoes, not wearing protective gloves and other common situations are often the root cause of these problems.

Oils & Blends: the following have been recommended for each problem but since they are both excessive skin build-up any of the oils may be helpful for either condition.

Corns: Clove, Grapefruit, Lemon, Myrrh, Peppermint.  

Calluses: Oregano, Peppermint

Suggested protocols:

Apply the selected oil neat (undiluted) topically to the affected area 2 or 3 times daily.  Continue consistently.
