Fab & Frugal: Make your own foot scrub

Big, small, straight, curved. Whatever the shape and size, our feet deserve to be pampered. No time to visit a spa this week? Tight budget? Make your feet happy by doing this homemade foot scrub recipe. Now head to your pantry and bring these supplies out. 


1/2 cup olive oil

(optional) choose between 1/2 ground coffee or 1/2 cup sugar

(optional) essential oil (cinnamon scent)

(optional) 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

empty jar

Olive oil has a gamut of uses outside the kitchen. Being a natural oil, it is non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores). In fact, it has been used for centuries as part of personal care. Sugar is a good exfoliant. When rubbed against the skin, it sloughs off dead skin cells. Ground coffee is another alternative. Coffee has antioxidant properties. Coffee on skin, why not? 

Mix all ingredients together. The use of essential oil (cinnamon) and ground cinnamon is optional. I just want mine to smell like freshly brewed gourmet foot scrub. Essential oils can be bought from any health store. I purchased mine online.

Complete your foot spa experience. Soak your feet in warm water for about five minutes. Pat dry. Scrub with this homemade recipe. Rinse. Apply foot lotion (or moisturizer). Suffering from dry cracked heels? Wear socks overnight after applying foot lotion. 

Here’s my Coffee Cinnamon Foot Scrub!

Use within 3 months. I swear my feet are well moisturized!

Dry cracked heels ain’t fab. Make your feet happy! Scrub and moisturize.
