Scrubs are a great way to deal with that hard, dry skin you sometimes get on your heels.
Peppermint Rosemary Foot Scrub
Place these ingredients in a small bowl.
- 1/4 cup sea salt
- 1 tablespoon plain salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil (you may need to soften this a little first)
- 3 drops peppermint essential oil
- 2 drops rosemary essential oil
Use a whisk to combine. If the scrub seems a little dry add more oil - too wet, add more salt.
Rub gently into damp feet. Rinse off.
Store in an airtight container.
Sea salt can be healing if not over-used, but can sting if skin is sensitive, irritated or thin. Don't use a salt scrub on skin that has just been shaved or waxed or is otherwise irritated.
