Another one to add to my homemade beauty products album.

This is aimed at the feet but can be used as a hand or body scrub. Use by rubbing all over your feet and wash off with warm to hot water. This is to personal preference. Some people like it runnier while others prefer it drier and more gritty. Use as much or as little oil as you like.

The sugar does settle over time so just give your container a little shake once a day or so. If you use it much less just shake when you go to use it or every week or so.

It should last a about a month or so. If you keep it in the fridge it will last even longer. I will leave mine out otherwise I’ll forget to use it. The mint may discolor over time but will still be fine to use.

      Is it quite hot where you are? Heat can turn it brown. I keep it in a cool dark place.
