Exfoliating Essential Oil Foot Scrub Recipe


  1. Mix all ingredients together
  2. Put into jar or glass storage container
  3. To use, place a small amount into palm of hand and rub over feet, paying close attention to heels.  Rinse off. If using in shower, use caution as the oils can make the shower slippery.  
  4. Follow with moisturizing foot lotion and a pair of cozy socks. 

Essential Oil Recipe Tips

  • You can substitute lavender and frankincense essential oils with other essential oils of choice, see below for more blends.
  • Single essential oils would work with this recipe, or a favorite blend from your oil brand.  You would just need 15-20 drops total per DIY recipe.
  • If you like your sugar foot scrub wetter, add more carrier oil until it reached your desired level.
  • As an alternative to using in the shower, you can soak your feet in a warm foot bath first which will soften the skin and then use this exfoliating foot scrub to buff away the dead skin. 
  • If your feet and heels are very dry and crack it will take some persistence on your behalf.  Use scrub 3 times per week until all the dry and cracked skin is off. 
  • To maintain healthy feet, use exfoliating foot scrub once per week. Make sure to use essential oil lotion or skin balm to soften heels.
