To create the scrub, you'll need:

STEP ONE

Rub the lavender flowers in your hands and then mix into the sugar, this will help infuse the aroma. Take a large tub and pile the sugar like two sand dunes - one for each foot.

Step 2 diy foot scrub

STEP TWO

Arrange the lemon slices on top of the two piles. Place a foot on each pile and start to rub your feet on the lemon slices. Crush the slices with your heel and scrunch with your toes in order to release the lemon juice to wet the sugar.

STEP THREE

Create a gentle friction with the sugar and your feet. The lavender flower will release its natural oils and as you continue massaging the sugar it will stimulate the blood circulation to the pressure points under the sole. Do this for approximately 10-15, the rinse with water and enjoy smooth, healthy looking feet.
