After a long day of work, we sometimes feel tired and in need of some attention to just relax. Unfortunately, most of the time, that means going to a spa and spending a small fortune which I'm sure we all agree is not something that we can do every day. A lovely DIY exfoliating foot scrub with essential oils is just what you need to recharge and feel invigorated in the comfort of your own home!
All you need to do is check out this recipe and put some relaxing music on to help you unwind. All the ingredients in this scrub have been carefully selected to give you the best spa experience without leaving your house and will leave your skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
Organic Argan Oil is rich in Eicosenoic Acid, also known as Gondoic Acid, a monounsaturated Omega 9 fatty acid that makes this oil so similar to our own sebum, the naturally occurring oil produced by our skin. This means that the oil is effortlessly absorbed by the skin, spreads easily and won't leave a greasy residue.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is an excellent emollient, especially suitable for dry skin and perfect for dry and cracked heels. Solid at room temperature, but it will melt easily when you rub it into your skin. In this recipe, we will melt the coconut oil in the microwave before applying it on the skin to mix it better with the rest of the oils that we are going to use. Coconut Oil is deeply nourishing and it will leave your skin feeling hydrated. We suggest using unrefined coconut oil as it has a natural coconut aroma that you will absolutely adore.
Organic Sunflower Oil contains Lecithin which boosts the oils emollient powers, giving you soft and smooth skin. It makes an effective moisturiser, hydrating, protecting and nourishing the skin.
Finally, Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil is one of the most popular essential oils and it's a perfect addition to this foot scrub. This wonderfully versatile oil is well known for its therapeutic benefits. Its balancing and cleansing powers make it ideal for use in skincare, helping to protect and clarify the skin. It's also effective at removing foot odour.
Wet or soak your feet first then add a generous amount to your palms and work into feet. Rinse feet and towel dry. To maximize the benefits, leave the scrub on for 10-15 minutes and just relax.
Store in a cool, dark place to help preserve the ingredients.
