The week’s drawing to a close and your tootsies are probably feeling tired and worn so here’s a DIY tutorial on how to make a simple but thoroughly satisfying foot scrub in your bathroom.
1 cup sea salt
1 tablespoon almond oil
1 tablespoon castor oil
20 drops eucalyptus oil
15 drops peppermint oil
Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl and then apply it onto your feet in circular motions and focusing on particularly rough spots. Massage the scrub gently all over your feet for 1-2 minutes. Then, rinse with warm water.
If you do not have castor oil, just use two tablespoons of whatever oil you have — jojoba, or coconut, or olive oil work just as well.
Tip: Did you know that castor oil has a softening effect on the skin? This affordable oil is also great as a foot moisturizer to relieve dry skin and chapping.
