Lemongrass and Chamomile Homemade Foot Scrub {with essential oil}

I absolutely love my recipes for ultimate sugar scrub and exfoliating sugar scrub cubes.  They smell great and leave my skin smooth and super soft. But when it comes to my feet, I need a little extra "oomph".  My dry, cracked heels need some extra scrubbing power to get them sandal ready.  And that's where this homemade foot scrub comes in. It has both Epsom salt and sugar to exfoliate, smooth, soften, and rejuvenate my tired toes and tough soles.
