You don’t need to go to a spa to treat yourself and pamper your feet. You can make your own homemade foot scrub! After the treatment, your skin will feel soft, smooth and refreshed.

Many homemade body products are easy to make, use ingredients you might already have at home and don’t cost much. It’s a great homemade gift to share, plus it’s just plain fun to make!

What you’ll need:

• 2/3 cup white sugar

• 1/3 cup brown sugar

• 1/2 cup olive oil

• 1 tbsp. vanilla extract

• Containers/jars

• Mixing bowls

• Whisk

• Measuring cups/spoons

• Fork

1. In the mixing bowl, combine 2/3 cup white sugar with 1/3 cup packed brown sugar. Whisk them together until they are completely combined.

2. Add cup olive oil and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract and mash together with a fork until all of the oil is combined into the sugar mixture.

3. Pack the mixture down into the containers or jars.

After finishing up your cleansing craft, reflect:

Body scrubs are a wonderful exfoliant and moisturizer for use in the shower. They can add a healthy glow to dull, dry skin. Whether you have dry, normal, oily, or sensitive skin, exfoliation can bring new life to your complexion. The process of exfoliation rids the body of any dry, dull skin by removing dead cells from the surface of the skin. By removing these dead cells, exfoliation can help clean pores and keep them from becoming clogged and leave skin with a refreshed and clean feeling!
