There’s nothing better to pamper your feet than a homemade foot scrub. Scrubbing your feet is not only a good way to exfoliate dead skin; it’s also a nice way to relax tired tootsies.
I love experimenting with natural beauty treatments, so I rummaged my cabinets for ingredients to make my own homemade foot scrub. With three natural oils, this scrub leaves my feet feeling soft and hydrated, with the subtle lingering scent of almond.
Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I’ve whipped a few extra batches of my signature coconut almond homemade foot scrub and packaged it for the holiday.

2. Using the spatula, evenly mix all of the ingredients in the bowl.
