Ahhhhhhhh.... this is such a relaxing and hydrating treat for your feet! Look, you all might be ready for sandal season but I AM NOT. And I have no excuse. I live in Southern California and it's almost always flip flop temps. This winter I really let my feet go and hid them in boots. Now I'm paying for it and I'm working hard to get my feet soft, pretty and hydrated. The recipe that Sue-Kate is showing in this video is perfect for me. I adore citrus scents this time of year and her addition of sweet marjoram essential oil is so creative. I'm definitely slathering this on my feet tonight!
(Scroll below video for the full recipe and some benefits of the essential oils we've chosen.)
Overnight Lemon Foot Mask
2 tablespoons Green Leaf Naturals Aloe Vera Gel
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
10 drops lemon oil
5 drops of sweet marjoram
Vigorously whisk all the ingredients together or use a hand mixer. Place in the fridge to firm up a bit. Pro tip: I like to put my DIY creams like this in the fridge to harden, then I use the mixer on them again and it creates this incredibly creamy, luxurious texture! Slather on your feet before bed and then put on cotton socks. In the morning, your feet will be so soft and they will smell heavenly! ENJOY!
