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!)?


Makes: 230 g Prep time: < 5 min.


• 200 g epsom salt
• 20 g sodium bicarbonate
• 10 g coconut oil (the type that solidifies)
• 5-10 drops of essential oils
• 1/2 tsp green spirulina (optional if you want to colour it)


My favourite essential oil in this recipe is peppermint, but don’t be limited by my suggestions. Use oils that fit your budget, or those that you already have in your collection. Read here for more information.


1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until combined.
2. Transfer into container of choice.

To Use

Massage over feet and rinse with warm water. Best used after a good, long foot soak.
