Want to get rid of that dry, rough skin on your feet and heels? An exfoliating foot scrub is the way to go! It is simple to make and easy to use.
Epsom salt is a natural exfoliant that can help to buff away dead skin, bringing fresh skin to the surface. Sweet almond oil and essential oils will help to soften and refresh the skin on your feet and heels, leaving them feeling wonderful. So go ahead, make up a batch today and start treating your feet!
Exfoliating Foot Scrub:
- 3/4 cup Epsom Salt
- 1/4 cup Sweet Almond Oil
- 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
- Glass Storage Container

Foot Scrub Recipe Tips:
You can substitute lavender and frankincense essential oils with other essential oils of choice. Even single essential oils would work with this recipe, or a favorite blend from your oil brand. You would just need 15-20 drops total. Click here to buy the airtight glass jar pictured in this blog post, on sale now!
Here are more essential oil variations you can try for our exfoliating foot scrub:
Bedtime Exfoliating Scrub:
10 drops Roman Chamomile
10 drops Lavender
Citrus Exfoliating Scrub:
5 drops Lemon
5 drops Orange
5 drops Grapefruit
Lively Exfoliating Scrub:
10 drops Peppermint
10 drops Orange
Deep Clean Exfoliating Scrub:

If using in shower, use caution as the oils can make the shower slippery. As an alternative, 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. Follow with moisturizing foot lotion and a pair of cozy socks.
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. Then just maintain with a once per week exfoliating foot scrub.
