If I had known how easy this was to make, I would have done it years ago. Not only does it work (that's kind of important) but the ingredients are also beneficial to your skin. Take a look:
Epsom salt(magnesium sulfate)--eases muscle strain and aches, heals cuts, draws toxins out of the body
Almond oil--nourishes and softens skin
Lavender--cleanses skin irritations, eases body tension, calms nerves
Mint--energizes, cools skin, cleanses, helps remove toxins
1 c. epsom salt
3/4 c. almond oil (you can also use grapeseed or jojoba)
1 Tbsp. lavender buds
1 Tbsp. crushed mint
3 drops lavender essential oil
1. Combine epsom salt, lavender buds and mint in a bowl and mix well.
2. Transfer to blender and pulse until salt, lavender and mint are ground. Pour back into bowl.
3. Add almond oil and lavender oil and mix well, until dry ingredients are completely saturated.
4. Pour into a half pint jar (a funnel helps a lot).
To use, massage a quarter size amount into each foot, rinse and dry. Feet will be slippery in the shower so be careful. For best results, cover with socks for at least an hour immediately after drying. For a great fall body scrub, check out my Cinnamon Ginger Salt Scrub recipe. Both of these make great homemade gifts!
