Sea Salt Foot Scrub

Sunday, November 11, 2012

First of all, a HUGE thank you to all Veterans who have served our country and enabled the freedoms that we enjoy in the United States.  It is a selfless thing that you have done and we appreciate it.

Today we are talking about Sea Salt Foot Scrub.  It's very effective for ridding yourself of dry, flaky skin.  Cold weather is coming and the feet can suffer extreme dryness.  The Sea Salt Foot Scrub recipe I have is easy, quick AND makes a lovely gift!

Green Tea Sea Salt Foot Scrub

First you start with sea salt...easily found in most grocery stores.  Put about a cup in a bowl.  Next add olive oil.  The amount can vary, depending on how "juicy" you want the scrub.  I used about 2 teaspoons.  Then stir to evenly distribute the oil.  Next you can add your favorite scent.  I used Green Tea scented fragrance oil.  Just a few drops will do, depending on how strongly scented you want the scrub. 

Now mix together until well blended.  You can then put the scrub into small jars, a plastic container or even a Ziploc bag.  If you plan to give as gifts, you will want to attractively package your scrub.  Packaging is everything!  Wouldn't you rather receive an adorable little jar of scrub instead of a snack bag? 

Ok, to make it cute, I used clean baby food jars with the labels removed.  (I asked my some friends with young children for their jars, since my kids are well out of the baby food stage!)  Thanks Nina and Kathy!

I used a small spoon to pack the salt scrub into the jars, wiping the edge when the jar is full. 

Then you can decide what to do with the lids.  Right now they say Gerber, or Beechnut or Tender Harvest...probably NOT what you want your gift to say.  I attempted to spray paint the lids.  I wasn't pleased with the uneven results.

I opted instead to wrap a thin ribbon around the side of the lid and cut scrapbooking paper for the top of the lid.  It looks so pretty!  The only thing left to do was make a label with the product name and short instructions for use.  Once this was glued on, I tied a ribbon around the neck of the jar and voila!  Total cuteness!

Wouldn't you like to make this for teachers, bus drivers, administrative assistants, hair stylists and more?  Oh yes, and don't forget to keep some for is lovely to have soft feet.

My next post will be the sugar hand scrub I tried...stay tuned! Pin It Now!
