I’ve noticed that the longer the distance I run, the rougher my feet get! My twin sister Julie, who is training for her first 1/2 Marathon in September, has feet that are looking pretty gnarly; she’s also losing some of her toenails! Oh No! I can’t offer tips on loosing toe nails, but I can help solve the issue of rough feet with my DIY Lavender Foot Scrub.
I obtained this recipe from another one of my sisters (I have 5 of them). I love this foot scrub because it works great and it’s simple to make. I just had to share it. I picked a lavender essential oil. It is by far my favorite smell and because I was able to source a lavender oil made locally.Take care of your runner's feet with this Scrumptious DIY Lavender Foot Scrub Click To Tweet
Foot Scrub Recipe
- 1 cup of sugar
- ½ cup of Organic Coconut Oil (at room temperature)
- 10 to 15 drops of you favorite essential oil
- Combine all 3 ingredients in a bowl with a fork to break down any of the coconut oil until well blended. Massage a table-spoon of the food scrub over your wet or dry feet for a 1 minute. Rinse and enjoy the smooth feeling.
After a grueling run, treat yourself to an at home pedicure. Soak your feet in a hot bath. Massage the foot scrub on your feet and calves. After you dry your feet, remove old nail polish and oil from your toes with nail polish remover. Paint your nails in a bright bold summer colour. Once your nails are dry, rub a nice body butter all over your feet and legs. Enjoy and Relax!
