Homemade Foot Scrub
Homemade Foot Scrub
Hey everyone. Sometimes I get really hard heels, but I found this recipe for a foot scrub which helps remove the tough skin from the heels of my feet. My feet have never felt better!
All you’ll need is;
100ml (4 fl oz) of sweet almond oil
8 drops of lemon essential oil
4 drops of tea tree essential oil
2 drops of myrrh essential oil
200g (7 oz) Maldon salt flakes
You probably wont be able to get Maldon salt flakes easily, as they come from a place in England called Essex. However, I just use any old sea salt and it works great! Your going to need mixing bowl and a spoon for the recipe and some glass jars (you can use dark or clear glass jars, but they must have lids. A decent sized jam jar should do it).
First you mix the sweet almond oil and all the essential oils together. After, add the salt and sir thoroughly. And that’s it! Yup, that easy. However, you really should store it in dark jars. However, if your using the clear jars, as I said you could above, I highly recommend storing them in a dark place, (a cupboard in your kitchen or bathroom maybe?) this will insure that the aroma is well preserved so you get that lovely smell every time you use it.
Make sure you wash your feet and then soak them in warm water for around 5 minutes before you use the scrub. I’ve found this softens your skin a little, so the scrub works even better. Once your feet are dry, just scoop out a handful of the homemade scrub and massage into the skin on your feet, make sure you spend longer in areas with hard skin. You can do this over the bath or a large bowl, just to make sure you don’t make a mess. Once your finished, rinse all the salt off your feet with warm water and then dry them with a soft towel.
Once your done your feet are going to feel wonderful! However, they will still feel a little oily, but don’t try and get that off. Allow the oils to sink in and do their job. I just put on some comfortable cotton socks to keep me from traipsing greasy footprints around the house.
For women who are pregnant, I would recommend not using the myrrh essiential oil; just remove it from the recipe completely. It’ll still work wonders to tired, hardened feat with tough skin around the heel leaving them feeling fresher and younger than ever! Enjoy!
