I love all natural things.  There's nothing more satisfying about creating beauty recipes using simple ingredients.  I recently found a great foot scrub recipe from  Skin Care Recipes and Remedies to remove dry skin.  We spend so much time on our feet they deserve a lot of TLC.  This recipe contains lavender oil which I also use on my body when I get out of the shower and at night on my temples to help me sleep.  Hope this helps your poor peds!!

Salt scrub

1 cup of sea salt or Epsom salt
1/2 cup of cold water
2 drops of lavender essential oil

Start off by gradually adding water to salt and lavender oil
As you are adding it, you want to make sure the mix starts looking like a paste. It has to be not too liquid and not too solid, it should be like soft though otherwise it will run between your fingers
Rub your feet and soles in circular motion
Rinse off with warm water

That's it! Super simple.

Beauty tip: Put Vaseline on your feet and wear socks to bed when they are really dry. You'll wake up to soft, hydrated heels.

Do you have any favorite natural beauty recipes that you use?  I'd love to hear about them!
