With winter here, and a ridiculously cold one at that, our skin tends to dry out. And without the option of sandals, we tend to forget things that aren’t often seen in winter – our feet. Of course, this just makes spring all the more difficult as we rush to find every exfoliating and moisturizing product on the planet to get our feet back in tip top shape ASAP. However, there’s no need to put yourself through that pre-spring stress of beauty and total foot perfection. Simply start exfoliating and moisturizing those tired, dry feet now with what very well could be one of the best ever natural homemade foot scrub recipes ever.
This all natural homemade foot scrub recipe isn’t a mess of slippery oils, but rather a creamy combination of natural shea and cocoa butters and non-greasy argan and sweet almond oils. Fine ground pumice and walnut shell powder lend their supercharged exfoliating properties, while sea salt and tea tree oil lend their healing qualities. Plus there’s a touch of peppermint for a fresh, cool scent.
Natural Exfoliating Homemade Foot Scrub Recipe
2.65 oz. fine sea salt
.5 oz. walnut shell powder
.5 oz. fine pumice powder
.5 oz. shea butter
.5 oz. cocoa butter
.75 oz. argan oil
.25 oz. sweet almond oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil
5 drops tea tree oil
Begin by weighing out the shea and cocoa butters, then melt them in either a double boiler or the microwave. Next weigh out the argan and sweet almond oils and stir into the melted butters. Add the essential oils, then weigh all remaining dry ingredients and stir into the butter and oil mixture. Allow to cool completely. If any of the oil and butter settles on the top, simply re-mix all of the ingredients with a fork to fully incorporate then spoon into a 4 oz. container of your choice.
