  • Hi there! I saw this remedy for dry, cracked elbow on a talk show. Take regular vegetable oil, olive oil....any kind of oil, except for maybe baby oil...and rub it on your elbows. Take a tube sock and cut the foot off and slip the sock up over the arms to cover the elbows, which prevents the oil from being rubbed off on your clothing, bed covers, etc. I think they said it's best to do this before going to bed and sleeping while the oil soaks into the skin. They said the results are wonderful. Please let me know if you try this and if it works! Take care! dar
