Natural Neem Oil & Tea Tree Foot Scrub Recipe
© Rebecca D. Dillon
2.4 oz. Dead Sea salt (or fine pink Himalayan salt)
6.5 oz. pumice powder
3.6 oz. Epsom salt
.3 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic clay)
2.5 oz. safflower oil
2.5 oz. hemp seed oil
.5 oz. neem oil
4 mL tea tree oil
2 mL lemongrass, rosemary or lavender essential oil
Using a digital scale weigh out salt, pumice and clay into a large glass bowl. Mix well.
In a separate container weigh out the safflower, hemp seed and neem oils. Then using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the essential oils and stir into the oil mixture.
Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the oil mixture, using a fork to whisk the ingredients together as you go. Once the ingredients for this neem oil and tea tree foot scrub recipe are thoroughly combined, spoon into an 16 oz. jar. (I used an 16 oz. straight sided amber plastic jar with a black smooth plastic lined cap from SKS Bottle & Packaging. You can purchase these jars in bulk for homemade gifts or for packaging for products you are making to sell here.)
Now screw the lid onto your jar and label as desired.
Use this foot scrub daily in the bath or shower by massaging onto wet feet then rinsing and patting dry. Then follow with my natural foot repair salve recipe with neem oil. You’ll love how soft your skin feels afterwards! Plus, because this neem oil and tea tree foot scrub recipe is made using fine ground pumice, you can also use it as natural body scrub to exfoliate and soften other rough or dry skin areas.
If you’re selling this neem oil and tea tree foot scrub, be sure to label your product to FDA guidelines. It’s also highly recommended you use a preservative in this product to prevent mold and bacteria should water be introduced into the product during normal use. You may also want to consider using either vitamin E or rosemary extract to help extend the shelf life of the oils used.
