Homemade Foot Scrub

Giving myself a pedicure is one of my favorite ways to spend my "me time." It's fun and relaxing, and having pretty feet is just a bonus! I rarely go to the salon because I have all the ingredients in my kitchen for the best homemade food scrub (and I bet you do too!).

What you'll need:

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon almond oil (can be substituted for olive oil)

Just combine all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix till they turn into an even consistancy. It's best to soak your feet in warm water first to loosen any tough, calloused areas. Then just slather on your homemade foot scrub to get pretty feet in no time! I even tend to use it on my lower legs as well, feels so good!

It smells delicious, works like a charm, and the cost is steal because the ingredients are already in your home!

    I made this fun & my feet thank you! So glad I found your blog. Q: Do you think this keeps well to make it jars for gifts? I was wondering maybe if the brown sugar would dissolve? Anyhow, thanks for sharing :) Ashley in Colorado

  9. Hi Ashley! So glad you liked this tutorial. :] As far as putting it in jars for gifts (super cute idea by the way!) I'm not sure. I guess it depends how long it will be sitting. I was thinking you may start to see some separation between the oils and the sugar. Only one way to find out though! I actually may have to try it as a gift myself! xo

    This is awesome! I'm making a "beauty kit" for my roommate for Christmas. I'm making a bunch of homemade soaps and other beauty items and packaging them up in mason jars and other cute things. Is it okay for me to make it ahead of time and package it up? Or should it be used right away?

  11. HI Hayley, I'm not sure it should sit for a long time, just because there is only in it. I worry that it might separate? I really don't know though, I always use it right away! :] But even if it did, I'm sure it could just be mixed up to the correct consistency again, it just may not look as pretty to begin with. ;]

    This is a good mix, I've heard of sugar scrubs before, but they are just equal parts brown sugar to olive oil, but this one sounds much better. I can't wait to give it a try :D thanks for sharing!
