Sweet Feets Creamy Foot Scrub

I had a crapload of pumice laying around and had no idea what to do with it. I think I won it in a giveaway, but I can't remember. Anyway, I got the bright idea to make a foot scrub because sandal season will be here in a few short months, and if I see another crusty foot this spring, I'm going to hand out samples-seriously! It's one of my most pettiest pet peeves...

I scented this scrub with all essential oils: tea tree to deodorize, peppermint to refresh and energize those tired, weary tootsies, and lavender to cut some of that medicinal smell of the tea tree. I know some folks love the aroma of tea tree-I aint one 'em!

This scrub looks kinda purplish in the pic, but it's really grayish. I added no color to this as I wanted to keep it as natural as possible. The base is unrefined shea butter and avocado oil so it's scrubby and mucho moisturizing at the same time. I would not recommend this for the face-it's really made for crust-busting: feet, knees, and elbows....

I like that - crust bustin! Lavender and tea tree are also anti-bacterial - perfect for feet!

Perfect! Why do we (in general) neglect our feet? A little foot pampering can put me in a really good mood lol.
