Mix 1 cup Epsom salt, 1/4 cup coconut oil (or another oil: jojoba, almond, olive oil, etc), 15 drops lavender essential oil and store in an airtight glass jar. When you are ready to treat your feet, take a small amount and rub on the bottom of your feet. Rinse and dry. You can also change out the essential oil to a scent you prefer or use sugar in place of Epsom salt.
Summer calls for fun dresses and sandals. That is exactly what I have been wearing anyway and my feet have paid the price.
Hard, rough patches on my heels and not so pretty feet is what I had going on. I was using an all-natural exfoliant that helped a little bit, but not entirely.
Getting a pedicure is not an option either. Knowing what is in those products and in the air is not relaxing for me at all. Last time I went for a pedicure, all I did was sit and stress over the toxic chemicals they were smothering on me. No fun!
Even purchasing many of the conventional, store bought foot scrubs can be harmful to you. So many unnatural ingredients! So why not skip the trips to the nail salon and wasting money on body care products that are hurting your health.
It is time to dive in and make this amazing Lavender Magnesium Foot Scrub. It worked so well my hubby could not believe how soft my feet were!
Why did I choose these ingredients? They are all natural and good for your body!
Many people are low in magnesium and this scrub is a great way to get that vital mineral into your body while beautifying your feet.
