With the warm weather fast approaching its time to get your feet to Diva status ready for flip slops, the beach and those cute little shoes that are crying out for some wear time.
We’ve had our poor feet covered up all winter in boots and thermal socks and they are no doubt dry and needing some attention.
With this in mind here is an awesome Diva foot scrub to get them perfect for the summer months to come.
Peppermint essential oil is perfection in a bottle for helping with your feets blood circulation and it has the bonus of having anti-fungal properties. The oil has menthol too which cools your feet, it nourishes dull skin and even helps oily or greasy skin.
Ingredients you will need:
½ cup Epsom salt
½ cup sugar
½ cup melted coconut oil
¼ cup dried peppermint leaves (optional)
8-10 drops peppermint essential oil
Mix Dry Ingredients:
Combine the Epsom salts, sugar and dried peppermint leaves (whilst optional I always use them) in the glass jar. Give it a thorough mix so that the ingredients are well combined.
Add Essential Oil:
Add 8-10 drops of the peppermint essential oil to the melted coconut oil. You can add more if you want, please remember peppermint oil is strong!
Add the Melted Coconut Oil:
Very slowing pour the melted oil into the container with the combined dry ingredients.
Mix thoroughly until it is evenly distributed.
How to Use:
Soak your feet in a basin of warm water for at least 10 – 15 minutes. Use a nail brush all over to start the dead skin removal. The start with the pumice stone to remove all the dead skin from your heels.
Change the basin to fresh warm water. Grab a good handful of the foot scrub and rub it well all over your feet, you will feel a tingle don’t worry that’s just as it should be. Rinse off with warm water, you will find that the coconut oil will remain on your feet so be careful when stepping out of your basin.
Keep this routine up on a weekly basis for your feet and they will thank you for it and you’ll be envied by all for such beautiful looking feet this summer.
