Softening Coconut Lavender Foot Scrub

Do you kick your shoes off every chance you get and walk barefoot whenever possible?

Born into a farming family, and a country girl at heart, I’ve always been one to avoid wearing shoes. I remember stepping on a honey bee or two while picking strawberries in my Aunt Sandy’s strawberry field when I was a kid. (Yes, I said field, not patch – it was incredible!)

And really, why would anyone wear shoes in the summer? There’s something completely refreshing about stepping barefoot through the soft green grass.

I grew up in an old Victorian-style home with a wrap-around porch. We spent hours swinging in the porch swing and playing random games – all barefoot of course. If the bottoms of my feet weren’t black by the end day then I didn’t play hard enough.

We have a huge screened-in porch and deck on our home now. I slide open the sliding glass door and let the fresh air in every chance I get. Frequently, I enjoy our outdoor living space barefoot.

But, now that I’m a little older my skin doesn’t bounce back as fast. So, walking barefoot can really wreak havoc on my feet. Luckily my sister and I came up with a solution a few years ago. And I’m happy to share it with you today!

Exfoliation sheds dead skin cells and exposes new skin underneath.  And this simple homemade Coconut Lavender Foot Scrub does it well!

Seriously, you have to try this recipe! I have purchased countless lotions promising the end dry soles, without much result.

What’s missing in those foot lotions? – Exfoliation!!

No amount of lotion will keep dry skin away forever. You see before you try to lock in moisture for a lotion or cream, you must exfoliate! Exfoliation sheds dead skin cells and exposes new skin underneath. And this simple homemade foot scrub does it well.
