Refreshing Foot Scrub

Published on 16th May 2020

We love this recipe as it leaves your feet beautifully soft and cool, and the scent will pep you up!  We’ve used our fractionated coconut oil for ease of use as, unlike other types of coconut oil, it stays in liquid form.  Coconut oil makes a wonderful moisturiser and the addition of brown sugar will help to gently slough off any dry skin.  Zesty lemon essential oil and cooling peppermint essential oil are added for their cleansing and cooling abilities, and their gorgeous uplifting aroma will delight your senses.


  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 8 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 8 drops lemon essential oil

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed.  Apply to the feet and massage in using gentle, circular motions.  Let the mixture sit on the feet for 5 minutes before rinsing off with warm water and patting dry with a clean towel.  Any left over foot scrub and be stored in an airtight container.

This Refreshing Foot Scrub makes a very thoughtful gift, especially for someone who is on their feet a lot.  You can either make it up yourself by ordering the ingredients in our online shop and dispense it into a pretty jar to gift or give the lucky recipient the ingredients along with the link to the recipe and they can have a go themselves!

We always recommend doing a little patch test first, as you should when trying any new skincare product for the first time, particularly if you have sensitive skin.  Always mix essential oils with a suitable carrier oil, never apply them directly on to skin.
