Make your own Jojoba foot scrub

Home made Jojoba Oil foot scrubSince I’m a huge Jojoba Oil fan, I’m always looking for new ways to work it into my beauty routine. Here’s a quick recipe for your own home-made Foot Scrub, plus a few options for you ladies who like to switch it up.

  • 2 tbsp Sea Salt or Raw Sugar (the bigger grainy variety),
  • 2 tbsp Jojoba Oil.,
  • A few drops of Tea Tree Oil (for the anti-fungal properties it has),
  • A few drops of Peppermint oil to help tired tootsies; or Lavender oil to relax and soothe

Mix it all together and scrub away!

My suggestion is that you only mix enough for 1 or 2 scrubs at a time. And please be careful walking on slick floors or in your shower after using any foot scrub- the oils can make everything exceptionally slippery!

For a detox foot scrub you could swap in Epsom Salts for the salt/sugar. Epsom salts are superb for drawing out toxins. They also work great in the bathtub for a full body soak!

Any ideas for where to get the oils?

Hi Heather, Great question! I should have included my favorites. For local stores- check your natural food markets like Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc. For online, I highly recommend Herbaria’s Jojoba Oil:
It’s reasonably priced and I love their service (and their soaps!). The Herbaria one is my favorite. I use their scented versions for my body, hair and foot scrubs. I have their plain oil for my face. 🙂

I once bought a small bottle of lavender essential oil at Michael’s or Joann Fabrics (I forget which it was.). The bottle has lasted several years, since I don’t use it every day. I actually use it in a curl/hairstyle revitalizing spray that I make. No scrubs have I made with it yet. But hopefully, soon. Thanks for the info, Jami! 🙂
