One of my favorite ways to manage my foot care is through gentle exfoliation, also known as a foot scrub. A simple walk on the beach can provide this, but since most of us do not have beaches easily available on a regular basis, a homemade foot scrub to remove dead skin is a great alternative.


  • 1½ cups of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 8 drops tea tree oil
  • 5 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 8 drops lavender essential oil


  1. In a medium-to-large bowl, add the sea salt, olive oil and coconut oil. Blend well.
  2. Next, add the essential oils and blend again.
  3. Transfer to a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  4. Store in a cool, dark place.


To maximize the benefits, leave the scrub on for 10–15 minutes and just relax.
