DIY: Post Bearathon Foot Scrub
If running in the Bearathon left you with actual bear paws for feet, a good foot scrub might be just what the doctor ordered. With the dawning of sandal season, you definitely don’t want to miss out due to a few calluses and blisters. If you’re on a budget or lack the time to visit a spa, this DIY foot scrub is a great and inexpensive way to get your feet feeling smooth and healthy again. Leave the rough paws to Lady and Joy!
1 cup Coconut Oil:
Great for moisturizing
1 ½ cup Epsom Salt or Sugar:
Both will help exfoliate your feet; however, Epsom Salt also reduces pain and swelling as well as soothes your muscles and joints.
Essential oils of your choice:
Peppermint, lavender, and lemon will be best for deodorizing your skin. The number of drops or different oil combinations is completely up to you. A standard dose is about 10 drops of oil.
1 1/2 tbsp. honey:
This has natural antibacterial properties as well as minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants to help heal blisters, sores, and cuts.
1 tbsp. Rosemary:
This is also a natural deodorizer as well as a gentle exfoliant.
