Zesty foot care scrub
Invigorate your feet and your senses with the spicy, zesty scents of ginger, chilli and orange…
1 teaspoon of minced ginger
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
5-6 drops of orange oil
¼ of a cup of raw sugar
¼ of a cup of olive oil
Combine all ingredients together in a bowl to form a smooth paste, adding the cayenne pepper last. Scrub into tired, dreary feet to instantly awaken your skin.
The olive oil in this recipe is perfect for foot health, as it deeply nourishes extra-dry skin, while the cayenne pepper is fantastic for foot care when your feet need a pick-me-up – its spicy properties will penetrate and enliven your skin instantly.
Minty foot treatment scrub
Pep your feet up with the fresh scent of mint and the rejuvenating benefits of rose…
½ a cup of sea salt crystals
A large handful of fresh mint leaves
1 tablespoon rose water
1 tablespoon of olive oil
In a large pestle, put salt, rose water and mint leaves, and petals of the rose then use a mortar to mash up and blend together into a paste, releasing the natural oils from the mint and rose. Add in olive oil and combine again.
The rose oil in this recipe will awaken tired skin, while rose water is the ideal foot health tonic – known for its antibacterial and antiseptic properties – it will keep your tootsies super fresh and clean.
