How to make the Epsom Salt Foot Scrub?
The directions are very simple. Just follow this step by step as mentioned down below.
Start by measuring 1Tsp of baking soda, pour it in a bowl. Add 2 Tsp of Epsom Salt to this. Gently stir both the coarse ingredients.
Following, we will add the wet ingredients starting with 2tsp of olive oil. start mixing with the salt and baking soda mixture. Then, add two to three drops of essential oil. I have used sweet orange and peppermint. I personally prefer sweet orange but you can also add lavender or tea tree oil, that’s totally up to you.
Next up, add 1 – 2 drops of food color of your choice. I have used raspberry red. Don’t worry it won’t stain your feet, we just want to give a nice color to the scrub, not your feet. Such tini tiny amount won’t hurt, Right!!
Last but not the least, always place your scrub in an airtight jar, since Epsom salt has a tendency to draw moisture and hardening into chunks.
