It’s nearing the end of July, and if you love running about barefoot in the summer as much as I do, your feet probably need a bit of TLC. Lucky for your feet (and mine), this awesome scrub is just the thing.

This scrub gets its scrubby goodness from a bunch of salt, in a couple different sizes. Coarse salt and a sort of medium grain salt (basically a a bit coarser than whatever you put in your salt shaker).


To that, I’ve added some essential oils—refreshing peppermint and eucalyptus. Both are lovely and fresh, and do a great job of clearing out your nose and leaving your feet all cool and tingly.

And that’s it, really. It’s a nice, easy scrub to pull together, and it’s nice and scrubby. What more could you want in a summer pedicure?

Tingly Eucalyptus Peppermint Foot Scrub

2 tbsp coarse grain salt (I used large grain Dead Sea Salt compliments of Saffire Blue—thanks!)
2 tbsp medium grain salt

15 drops Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil (Eucalyptus Globulus is also a good choice)
20 drops peppermint essential oil (USA / Canada)

Stir the salts together in a small bowl. Add the essential oils one at a time, stirring thoroughly between additions.

Store in a 125mL/half cup mason jar. I’d recommend using the scrub quite promptly as salt loves to absorb moisture and fuse to itself, becoming a brick rather than a scrub. How quickly will depend on how humid your environment is, but I’d say definitely less than a week would be a good idea.
