~*~Make Your Own Footscrub~*~

Hello everyone!
Sorry for my absence lately, I've been down with a terrible virus but am finally starting to come back up!  Posts will be back to normal very soon!
So today I decided to do something a little different today and share one of my favorite things, my home made footscrub!  You can make this with only three ingredients that you probably have in your cupboards at home right now.
You will need:  Olive oil, Salt OR Sugar, & a small container (or large!)
First add your dry ingredients to the container : 1/2 cup salt  OR sugar. Then add your liquid ingredient , 1 tablespoon olive oil to your salt or sugar. Mush and mix all the ingredients with a spoon.

After the three main ingredients you can add other natural ingredients if you choose.  In this particular scrub I juiced an orange (2 tablespoons) into it (this is actually a cutie) and then grated in some zest.  You could also add lemon or lime or anything that is appealing to you. If you prefer a dryer scrub add your fruit or other potentially juicy ingredients carefully as they do add a lot of liquid.  You can also add a favorite essential oil (only about three or four drops) You can also add coconut oil to the scrub to make it extra yummy! when doing this put your salt/ sugar in first, then add half that amount of coconut oil, then continue to follow the recipe.
The finished product!

Close up your scrub and add a fun little label if you want to!
Enjoy during your next pedicure!
