Summer Often Leaves Dry Feet and Painful, Cracked Heels

Summertime activities can cause feet to get dry and parched. Sun, sand, salt, chlorine, and water strip our skin of oils, and our feet are often affected the most. If you live in sandals or flip flops (or go barefoot) during the summer, your feet are even more susceptible to drying. This Summertime Foot Scrub will be your feet’s best friend this summer!

Summertime Foot Scrub

Mix up a batch of this foot scrub and bring life back to those summer feet. Black lava salt gently exfoliates away dry skin while increasing blood flow. Coconut oil restores moisture and protects from further drying out. Tea tree and peppermint essential oils give this scrub a cooling, relieving quality and also provide wonderful cleansing properties.

Here’s the Recipe

1/2 cup black lava salt

1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil

10 drops tea tree essential oil

6 drops peppermint essential oil

Combine all ingredients and scrub feet, paying special attention to those cracked heels. Store leftover scrub in a jar with a lid.
