How to make your own foot and body scrub

Monday, March 05, 2018

How to make your own foot and body scrubI've been using and loving the Majestic Pure scrubs on my feet for a while now. I got it as a gift from my hubby, but now I'm all out :-(  I put another jar of it on my wishlist, but until I get it (and IF I get it), I will need to use something in the interim to scrub my feet.

I dug around my supply closet and found some shea butter from when I used to make scrubs. I figured I may as well use it up. I like to use shea butter because it keeps the salt solidified in the oil so it is easier to scrub with. Here is my recipe for a simple foot and body scrub.

2 Tbsp of shea butter
2 Tbsp of avocado oil (or any other oil you like)
1 cup of epsom salt
a few drops of fragrance oil or essential oil (optional)


  1. Put shea butter and avocado oil together in a measuring cup
  2. Melt in microwave at 50% power so it doesn't burn. Don't let the mixture get too hot, just warm enough to melt.
  3. Stir the mixture of oils so that they are well blended and fully melted.
  4. Add a few drops of your fragrance or essential oil and mix.
  5. Add the epsom salt
  6. Place the measuring cup with the mixture into an ice bath to cool it.
  7. While cooling, mix the oils and salt together until it solidifies.
  8. Store the scrub in a container like an old clean plastic jar. 

How to use: scoop out a small amount of scrub while taking a shower or bath. Scrub gently onto your rough areas, like feet, knees, legs, elbows, hands, etc. Rinse off with water and towel dry. Make sure to clean the bathtub after using this, as it can make the tub slippery.

Note: Use this scrub within a few months. There is no preservative added here, and the scrub can begin to go bad after a while. Try not to get water into the jar of scrub.
