Home made natural Stinky Feet Scrub
The combination of Epsom salt, peppermint oil, and tea tree oil will help evict those stinky particles. The tea tree oil also act as an anti-fungal treatment too. It has so many uses for things like acne, chest congestion, helps get rid of dandruff and dry scalp, etc.
⅓ cup raw sugar
⅔ cup Epsom salt
1 ½ tbsp Coconut Oil
½ tbsp dried peppermint
5-6 drops Peppermint Oil
4 drops Tea Tree Oil
Directions for natural stinky feet scrub
- In a small plastic bowl combine raw sugar, Epsom salt, and coconut oil. Stir til all of the sugar and salt crystals are coated with oil. Add a little more oil if necessary. The oil acts to protect the sugar and salt from dissolving.
- Stir in essential oils and dried peppermint flakes. Please make sure that you are using oil based essential oils and not water based extracts like baking extracts. They will not work as well and will clump and start to dissolve your dry ingredients.
- Be sure to leave your container in a cool, dry place and make sure that it gets sealed nicely. You can even put it in a ziplock bag if you’re in a pinch.
