Blackberry Mint Foot Scrub

A friend of mine asked if I was all exfoliated now. I’ve been sharing the scrubs I’ve been making lately on my Facebook profile with my friends and family. My answer was yes – my skin is very happy right now. Plus, I’ve been having fun creating these DIY sugar scrubs and sharing them with everyone. Today I have another one – a Blackberry Mint Foot Scrub. Sore, tired feet begone!

The inspiration for this scrub started with the blackberries in my fridge. My daughter calls them grape berries because they look like a bushel of grapes. Not only are they yummy and nutritious, they are also good for your skin. Blackberries contain Vitamin A, C and K and are powerful antioxidant.

You’ll need four ingredients to make this foot scrub: fresh blackberries, coconut oil, raw sugar and peppermint essential oil.

Mash up four blackberries with a fork. I wouldn’t bother using a food processor here. A fork gets the job done with little effort.

I’m loving raw sugar in scrubs! It holds itself up well to the wet ingredients and doesn’t completely dissolve. It gives a nice bit of grit you need in an exfoliating scrub.

I had a jar of coconut oil in my pantry that I totally forgot about. I heated a couple tablespoonfuls in the microwave to liquify it. You can pick up a jar at most grocery stores or health food stores. My aunt eats this stuff on toast…. The coconut oil, not the scrub!

Peppermint is invigorating and is wonderful to use on aching feet. I used this scrub after a long day of shopping and walking around a huge mall in Ottawa. My feet felt so much better! Plus, they were a lot softer too. They needed some TLC.
