Essiebutton's DIY Lemon & Peppermint Foot Scrub


Lately i've been seriously loving Estee from essiebutton's blog and youtube videos (new girl crush? I think so!) and everybody knows I love a bit of DIY now and then so when I saw she had created a DIY footscrub, there was no question about it, I had to give it a go!

You can check out the blogpost she wrote on it HERE but i'm gonna make my own post, just because I can. The "recipe" is as follows;

You Will Need:
  • Rock Sea Salt (just fill your jar and that will be perfect)
  • Half a lemon
  • Lemon zest (tablespoon) 
  • Almond oil(about 1/2 cup- 1 cup)
  • Peppermint oil (couple of drops will do the trick!)
  • Jar (or jars, whatever floats your boat)
  • Bowl
  • Spoon/spatula (just something to mix it with. You can use your hands if you wish it)
  • Ribbon (optional)
  1. Measure your jar full of rock salt and pour it into the bowl
  2. Squeeze in the juices of half a lemon
  3. Add in the lemon zest
  4. Pour in almond oil (put in as much or as little as you want, it's totally up to you. Just make sure it has the consistency of a scrub and has a scrub-y feel to it if ya know what I mean)
  5. Drop in about 3-4 drops of peppermint oil
  6. Mix!
  7. Scrape into your jar
  8. Tie bow around the jar (if you're into that sort of thing)
  9. Voila!

See! Easy! Essie also did a video tutorial type of thing on it too so i'll link that HERE as well so you can pop over and give that a watch too. I love this because not only is it super easy to make but it's fun too and they make great gifts. I actually made one for my friend Rosie who is really unwell at the moment and could really use a cute little pick me up in foot scrub form! (Hi chummy if you're reading, I love you loads. Feel better soon <3)

Pop on over later for my 30 Day Snap #5 picture! See you then!

Pip pip!

p.s. Make sure you mix it up a bit before you actually use it, the almond oil tends to sink to the bottom xx
