Homemade Lavender Mint Foot Scrub

Sandal season is here, and it’s important that we’re confident of the feet we’ll be showing off all spring and summer. I don’t usually get pedicures – I actually prefer to give myself a spa-like treatment all on my own. Today I want to share this recipe for a lavender & mint foot scrub. It’s made with sea salt to smooth out your skin, jojoba and olive oils to moisturize it, and it contains real mint leaves and lavender buds, so it smells absolutely incredible.

What you need:

Homemade lavender mint foot scrub ingredients
½ cup sea salt
6 fresh mint leaves (or 2 teaspoons dried)
½ cup olive oil
1/8 cup jojoba oil
2 teaspoons dried lavender buds
1-5 drops lavender essential oil

You’ll also need a blender and a jar with a lid (for storage).

What you do:

1. Combine the salt, mint leaves, and lavender buds into your blender. If you’re using fresh mint leaves, it helps to first break them up into smaller pieces. Pulse the blender until all ingredients are ground.

2. Empty the contents into your jar, and add the olive, jojoba, and lavender essential oils. Mix together until you have an even consistency throughout.

To use, apply about a quarter-sized amount into each foot. Massage, rinse, and dry. This will make your feet very slippery, so please be careful!

You can store this in an air-tight container for about a week if you used fresh mint; a month if you used dried mint.

I have it all except for the jojoba oil. Do you think it would work without jojoba?
