|Your feet will feel and look renewed.|
We put our feet through a lot of abuse every day. Between standing on them for too long or walking too much to wedge them in stylish, but hardly the most comfortable shoes, we in return pay the price for it. Since I also suffer, you probably notice how many posts I devote to restoring the health and beauty of feet with DIY foot care recipes. Today, I want to share another multitasking one to relieve stress as well as healing any fungal infections of the nail, disinfect with its antiseptic properties while smoothing, and softening tough skin. My DIY Foot Care Soothing Aromatherapy Scrub will give your feet new life.
My recipe has sweet almond oil to serve as the carrier oil. It also helps relieve aches, improve circulation and rid the skin of toxins.
|Brown sugar has a finer granule without roughing up hurting feet.|
Brown sugar was selected as the exfoliant. Having a finer texture than crystal structure of regular sugar, it is not as abrasive for hurting or swollen feet.
The other ingredients include tea tree oil for being an antiseptic as well as fungicide to help heal any problems of the nails and skin.
Something else that is beneficial for the health of the feet is rosewood essential oil. I chose to add this since it is an antibacterial, antiseptic and can boost your mood. To further aid in stress-busting, I also used some lavender essential oil.
Finally, I chose to incorporate a tablespoon of honey to this DIY recipe. Honey is a humectant that can draw moisture to the skin besides help with inflammation and fighting bacteria.
