Rub-a-Dub Foot Scrub

..........and so we come to the final post of savor summer.  If you're not lucky enough to visit the beach this summer (my last beach holiday was 2009!) a lot more effort has to be made to get the most out of the season.    I am one of those people that don't mind getting covered in sand and like to use the sand as a natural exfoliator on my feet. As an alternative, this home made foot scrub is even better!  You will need three ingredients:

1 cup sea salt flakes
1/2 cup coconut oil
5 drops lavender essential oil

Mix all the ingredients together.  Gather supplies - bowl of warm water and a towel.  Make sure you are sitting comfortably inside or outside in the garden.  Rub handfuls of mixture into feet paying particular attention to heels and ball of foot or wherever there is a build up of hard skin.  Use small circular movements and don't rub too hard!  Rinse feet off in warm water and pat dry with a towel.  Your feet will be thankful for the attention and not so embarrassed to be seen in sandals!

Thank you for being part of savor summer this July and thank you to Anne from My Giant Strawberry who came up with the idea.

That's all Folks!

That sounds great, Simone! My feet are always in a terrible state during the summer thanks to my preference for being barefoot as much as possible (I even garden barefoot!).

Enjoy your weekend and keep savoring the days, my friend!
