There's nothing like a good foot rub to push away the stress of a long day.
Mix up a batch of this simple, three-ingredient DIY foot scrub for the experience of a pedicure without the salon price tag.
This simple foot scrub also works well on elbows and calloused hands. And while it is a wonderful treat for you, it’s also perfect in a pinch as a hostess or holiday gift. Just jar some up, wrap it with a colorful ribbon, and voila — you've got a stylish gift.
The oil, whether you use jojoba or olive, is both nourishing and hydrating, while the Epsom salts relieve tension, reduce inflammation and remove dead skin. The rosemary stimulates your circulatory system, invigorating your whole body and soothing sore muscles. Does it get any better than this?
To make the scrub, simply mix the following ingredients together in a bowl or a jar.
The recipe can be easily doubled or tripled and then stored in an airtight container for future at-home spa sessions. Feel free to tweak the ratio of oil to salt if you want a smoother or more abrasive scrub.
