Keeping your feet good-looking just as the other parts of your body is essential for your well being. Commercial foot scrubs can be easily found in the market, but it will be a lot better for you and your budget if you make your own homemade foot scrub. There are various recipes available out there you can try, which employ natural ingredients already found in your home. This will help you save more money. Here are the ways on how to make homemade foot scrubs.
- Lime Foot Scrub. In this particular recipe, you will need at least three pieces of lime, two tablespoons of white sugar, one tablespoon of sweet almond oil, fifteen pieces of chopped fresh mint leaves, and lime essential oil. First, you have to cut the lime into pieces. Then, put these pieces into a blender until you form a pulp. Mix this pulp with the almond oil, white sugar, fresh mint leaves, and fifteen drops of lime essential oils.
- Sugar Foot Scrub. For sugar foot scrubs, you will need one-fourth cup of raw sugar, six drops of orange essential oils, a drop of ginger essential oils, one-fourth cup of almond oil and one teaspoon of powdered pepper. First, mix the sugar and almond oil in a bowl. Then add the essential oils. Finally, add the ground pepper and its ready to be used anytime. Sugar granules are best for exfoliating your skin while massaging your feet.
- Peppermint Foot Scrub. You will need one and a half cup of sea salt, one fourth cup of almond oil, two drops of peppermint essential oils and three drops of lavender essential oils. Mix the sea salt and almond oil together until you get that desired consistency and dryness of the mixture. Then, add the essential oils. The sea salt is an effective agent that helps remove dead skin cells in your feet while the lavender and peppermint essential oils act as exfoliating agents.
