If you’re looking for a luxurious, yet ridiculously simple, foot scrub, then this Epsom Salt Foot Scrub is for you. Our feet are awesome, they do so much hard work every day, yet they often get seriously neglected – you know the old cliché!

Epsom salt will exfoliate beautifully and is renowned for its soothing and detoxing properties. Bicarb is antifungal, antiseptic and gently exfoliating, and excellent at eliminating odour – perfect for feet!

So, go on, treat yourself and your tootsies to this divine scrub (or better still, get someone else to do it for you!)?
