Peppermint Rosemary Foot Scrub

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.

If you'd like to try a sugar scrub here's a recipe for a Brown Sugar Scrub.
