Now that winter is here and our feet are mostly covered up, we may not be paying them the kind of attention they deserve. You never know when a loved one might surprise you with a foot rub on a cozy night by the fireplace, so here’s a recipe for a scrub that will make sure your feet are at their softest.
1 cup coarse sugar (you could use brightly coloured red or green sugar crystals to lend a festive feel)
¼ c. avocado oil (or any mild carrier oil of your choice, such as olive or coconut)
5-10 drops of peppermint essential oil
Combine the ingredients in a bowl, adding more or less oil, sugar, or fragrance to achieve the scrub consistency and intensity of fragrance that is right for you.
Massage vigorously all over your beautiful feet, your delicate ankles, all the way up to your knees. Enjoy the feeling of the scrub and the invigorating, uplifting peppermint scent. Rinse off and moisturize as usual. Without a doubt, you will be inviting loving foot rubs throughout the holiday season.
