Lemongrass and Chamomile DIY 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.

 

This homemade foot scrub has extra "oomph" to get dry, cracked heels and tough soles sandal ready.  And it smells amazing!! made with lemongrass, chamomile, and lavender essential oils.

 

What’s in this homemade foot scrub?

organic cane sugar – Exfoliates and polishes skin as it sloughs away dead skin cells leaving a soft, smooth, very touchable finish.

Epsom salts– Powerful (yet gentle) exfoliation.  Plus its high concentration of magnesium eases stress and relaxes the body.

baking soda – A naturally alkaline substance with a reputation for helping to remove toxins.  Plus it helps to soften the skin and leaves skin feeling silky soft.

chamomile tea – Helps to lessen puffiness in tired, swollen feet.  Also helps to chill out, relax, and de-stress from the day.  Reenergizes, reinvigorates, and rejuvenates!

mica powder (optional)– adds fun color to the foot scrub.

avocado oil – The beta carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E found in avocado oil help moisturize dry feet and cracked heels.

Roman chamomile essential oil – Promotes relaxation, calms, nerves, and helps reduce stress.

lemongrass essential oil – Amazing scent plus many great therapeutic benefits — restores energy and combats mental fatigue, promotes a positive outlook, and refreshes mind & body.

lavender essential oil – Soothes skin, calms, clears the mind, and helps eliminate nervous tension.

      If you start with clean and sterilized bowls/utensils/jars and a new, fresh bottle of avocado oil, and use a clean spoon to scoop out the scrub each time, then the foot scrub should last for about 6 months if kept in the fridge and about 3 months at room temperature.
