Treating your feet with a homemade foot scrub containing essential oils can soften your skin, exfoliate dead skin cells, and leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.
For a simple foot scrub recipe, mix one tablespoon of olive oil, one tablespoon of sea salt, and a drop of your favorite essential oil. Use the mixture to scrub your lower leg and the bottom of your feet.
Another option is to blend 10 to 15 drops of your chosen essential oil(s) with 4 tablespoons of brown sugar and use the mixture as a foot scrub.
Caution: Don't use this aromatherapy recipe on damaged or sensitive skin.

Great for cold feet! Soak your feet in a small tub of warm water, and then use the scrub.
Blend all the ingredients in a 4-ounce (120 ml) glass jar. Makes three foot scrub sessions.
You can buy vanilla-infused jojoba ready made, or you can make your own. Fill a one-quart jug with jojoba oil, and drop two or three fresh, whole vanilla bean pods into it. Let the jug sit for about two weeks before using the oil.
