Lemon and Lavender are one of my favorite essential oil combinations – fresh, bright, and clean, this Lemon Lavender Foot Scrub is a favorite for that reason. They are especially fitting for springtime when I want all the scents around me to be light and just slightly floral. This scrub was a concoction I put together while experimenting with some of my favorite bath and body diy ingredients – just 5, including your essential oils. Most are things you probably already have in your pantry or bathroom cupboards. I like to use this by preparing a foot tub of hot water, then I scrub my feet and calves, rinse off in the tub of water, then soak for a deliciously relaxing mini spa treatment. The coconut oil also leaves your skin soft and moisturized for an added bonus. With Mother’s Day coming up this is a great handmade gift to bring a little comfort and relaxation mom’s way. Enjoy!
Lemon Lavender Foot Scrub
½ cup Epsom salts
¼ cup baking soda
2 Tbsp. liquid castile soap
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
5-7 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops lemon essential oil
Place all ingredients in a glass bowl that leaves plenty of room for mixing.
Stir until well combined.
Transfer to a glass jar with a tight fitting lid- like a mason jar or upcycled salsa jar – do not store in plastic as the citrus acid will eat away at it.
Store in a dry area for up to 6 months.
To use: Scrub feet and calves, rinse well, pat try.
