Katie’s Kitchen: Foot and Facial Scrub



No cooking needed!  My latest kitchen adventure ended in the bathroom.  Wait, that does not sound right….

I made scrubs for my feet and my face.  Each scrub has a sugar, a base oil for moisture, and a several drops of each essential oil used.

For the face:

Grapeseed Oil

Date Sugar (it has a fine grain)

Lavender Oil

Tea Tree Oil 

For the Feet:

Almond Oil

Turbinado Sugar (coarse grains)

Lavender Oil

Tea Tree Oil

Eucalyptus Oil

I need to put some more base oil in both mixes to get it the way I want, but they are really nice.

I wash my face as usual after the facial scrub (1-2x/week) but just a good rinse and my special, fuzzy nighttime time socks for my feet.

It does make a bit of a mess.  I therefore, have relegated the foot scrub to the tub and the facial to the shower.

Have you ever “cooked” your cosmetics or soap?

  1. It’s not you in the tub or shower sandblasting yourself Katie which I find funny. It’s the special, fuzzy nighttime time socks which are intriguingly funny 😆 Happy Sunday !! Ralph xox 😀

  2. How about a superfine sugar instead of date sugar? And I’m thinking lavender and peppermint oils for the feet…hmmm, may have my own kitchen/bathroom experiments. Thanks, Katie! xoxoM

    • Peppermint! Of course! I guess because I keep that one in the bathroom….out of site, out of mind. Thanks! 8)
      Any sugar you have in mind? That was the finest I saw at my little organic shop. There is a natural shop up the street that might have a different selection. If I want to use it more often, I will need a finer grain.
      I was also thinking maybe a salt for the feet next time??

      • I was just thinking of the supermarket superfine sugar, nothing fancy since it’s not being ingested and is just being used for the abrasive qualities. I thought of salt, too. Whole Foods has a salt scrub scented with vanilla and clove, I think, which I usually don’t like, but the combination is to swoon for! I think they call it Zanzibar blend, or something like that. But I like the home-made approach – just don’t use citrus essential oils in these experimentations since they’re photosensitive and you spend a LOT of time in the sun! 😉 xoxoM

  3. I will try this… It may freak my husband out a little, but he has getting use to the things I try… lol…
