Soothing Whipped Foot Scrub
I recently started experiencing foot pain due to the fact that I don't wear supportive shoes and I spend a lot of time on my feet. This foot scrub is not going to solve my problem, but it sure does feel nice after a long day. I used three amazing essential oils that will have your feet singing. Wintergreen, bergamot, and lemongrass
Wintergreen is a natural numbing agent and has tension reducing properties. It also promotes blood circulation if you experience swelling.
Bergamot is an anti-inflammatory which will help relieve muscle pain. It has anti-fungal properties which is always a plus in foot products. Its mood lifting aromatherapy properties benefit a gal after a rough day!
Lemongrass is a great analgesic, which means it has pain reducing properties. Like bergamot it is an anti-inflammatory and for anyone suffering from athletes foot it is also anti-bacterial.
I used one cup of coconut oil at room temperature and put it in my stand mixer. A hand mixer will work just fine as well. Use the whip attachment and start whipping. You will have to scrape down the sides a few times to make sure all the oil is whipped. I usually whip on a medium high speed for about 6-8 minutes. The more you whip it the fluffier it will be.
After it is good and fluffy I add my oils and whip again for another minute. After your oils have been fully integrated fold in the sugar with your spatula. Spoon into a glass jar and your done.
Whipped Foot Scrub:
1 Cup Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup Sugar
10 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
5 drops Wintergreen Essential Oil
5 drops Bergamot Essential Oil
I found these super cute glass jars months ago at my local grocery store. The clasp top is especially good for oily mixtures. Screw tops can be a little difficult to open or close when your hands are all greasy. I suggest using this scrub after a nice long Epsom salt foot bath. I hope you and your feet enjoy!
