DIY Essential Oils Exfoliating Sea Salt Foot Scrub Lotion
As I get older, I’ve found that my feet really benefit more and more from using an exfoliating foot scrub on them. Many of my friends enjoy getting pedicures, but some people just don’t enjoy them, prefer not to incur the expense, or can’t get them for medical reasons. I have an autoimmune disease and my rheumatologist has advised that I should not get anymore manicures or pedicures. I also have weird allergy issues, so making my own scrubs, lotions, etc at home is easier for me than shopping for pre-made products that may contain something I shouldn’t be exposed to. I also enjoy the crafting aspect of creating these, and using my creativity to personalize them to my preferences. Sometimes the batches make more than I can use, so I’ll gift them to others to enjoy 🙂 I hope you enjoy using this Sea Salt Foot Scrub Lotion as much as I do, it has my feet in tip top shape for sandals!
