Hi again! So today I am going to share one of my favourite DIY recipes with you. I stumbled across this one about 5 years ago and I have to say the results with this scrub are amazing! Your feet smell great and feel fantastic after using a few items from your kitchen.

For the refreshing mint scrub you will need:

2 tablespoons Granulated Sugar

1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 Β Lemon

8 – 10 Mint Leaves

Got your ingredients ready? Lets begin! πŸ˜€

1. In a large bowl, place the olive oil and the sugar.

2. Squeeze half a lemon in the bowl and stir gently for a few seconds to check if the consistency is suitable for you.

3. Using a mortar and pestle, crush the mint leaves for about a minute and add them to the mixture and stir.

4. Find a good spot, apply the scrub liberally on your feet and let them soak in the scrub for about 10 to 15 minutes. Wipe off with a towel or run feet under lukewarm water.

5. Enjoy your beautiful feet πŸ˜€

WHY SO GOOD ?

The olive oil nourishes the dry skin on the feet

The lemon juice acts as a bleaching and an anti bacterial agent

The mint leaves your feet feeling tingly and smelling fresh πŸ™‚
