A simple way for softening the cracks on the heel

Cracked heels can be softened to a great extent by applying the sap of the Peepal tree.

    The Latin name is  Ficus religiosa or the Sacred fig.*
 ( This is not to be confused with Ficus benghalensis which is the Banyan tree. )

                The leaves have a distinctive shape  -kind of heart shape which has a tapering end.
A milky white sap oozes out of the branches and leaves.When this is applied on the cracks they heal faster.
