What is an Epsom Salt Scrub?

Salt scrubs can be described as an exfoliating product that uses a variety of salts, and often a carrier oil to moisturize skin. Salt scrubs, especially Epsom Salt Scrubs, are more aggressive than sugar scrubs, and shouldn't be used on sensitive and damaged skin. Salt scrubs are best used on feet, hands and any other areas that have calluses (sometimes knees, elbows).

Epsom salt is a commonly used in salt scrubs. It is an inexpensive, yet very versatile and effective beauty product that many women use regularly to maintain their hair and skin health. Epsom salt has been praised by many women as a great exfoliator.

Salt Scrub vs. Sugar Scrub

Salt scrubs are usually more aggressive and should be applied to the feet, hands and body only. Salt is not suitable for all skin types.

A sugar scrub is a better choice in this situation because it's gentler. Salt scrubs are not recommended for use on your face. This scrub should not be used on sensitive areas or your face.

Also avoid freshly shaved skin, the salt will sting!

Best Essential Oils to Remove Dead Skin From Feet

Do you struggle with dry, callused feet? If so, you're not alone. Many people experience this problem because the skin on their feet doesn't get enough moisture. However, there are some natural remedies that can help! This blog explores how to use essential oils to remove dead skin from your feet and keep them soft and smooth.

The best time to use essential oil is after bathing or showering when your pores are open and ready for absorption.

  • Lavender
  • Frankincense
  • Myrrh
  • Lemon
  • Tea Tree

Exfoliating Essential Oil Foot Scrub Recipe

  • 3/4 cup Epsom Salt
  • 1/4 cup Sweet Almond Oil
  • 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
  • Glass Storage Container

Directions:

  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.

How Often Do You Need to Exfoliate?

Many people don't know what exfoliation is. They know that exfoliating makes their skin feel cleaner and brighter. You may notice that your moisturizer seems to be more effective after exfoliating.

Too much of a good thing though can lead to skin irritation. If you exfoliate too often, it can cause skin irritation. It is important to allow your skin to heal itself and be sure not to rub your skin too hard when exfoliating.

For most people, exfoliating twice to three times per week is plenty. You may want to exfoliate only once or twice per week if your skin is sensitive.

Where to Buy Essential Oils?

Essential oils are great because not only do they make you feel good physically but mentally as well. I love having them around since they have so many benefits like clearing the air of bad odors and improving moods by releasing calming scents in your home or office for instance!

We are frequently asked what essential oil brand we like, here are some of our favorites:
