Coconut Oil foot scrub
What you'll need:
Pour 1/2 cup of coconut oil into a jar.
Then put 4 tablespoons of sugar (or salt) into the oil.
And mix it all up! (The salt/sugar will separate from the oil, obvs. So you'll have to stir it each time you plan on using it).
I added some lavender oil into mine, though any scent will work. Or, you don't need to add a scent at all.
And there's your foot scrub! Super simple, and it definitely works!
Today I decided would be the day to tend to my feet since I plan on deep cleaning our place tomorrow for Mason's arrival so this is what I did for a nice foot bath.
-Soaked my feet in a bath of 1 cup warm milk (...i know, but its good for the skin.) and 5 cups of warm water for 10 minutes.
-Then I took my feet out and rubbed the foot scrub all over both my feet and let it sit for a good 5 minutes so they would absorb the oil.
-I put my feet back into the milk/water bath to rinse them off and then took them out and dried off.
-I then rubbed coconut oil on my feet/nails/cuticles and put on some socks so the oil could properly moisturize my feet. I usually keep the socks on for a minimum of 4 hours if I do this during the day, though if its before I go to sleep I'll just try and keep them on all night. (and I hate sleeping with socks on, so I usually will do it during the day).
-Once you take off the socks, your feet will feel amazingly smooth!
