I’ve been wanting a pedicure, but I am getting paranoid of all the nasty chemicals that they use at salons. So I gave myself a pedicure today.

Step 1: Soak feet in warm water with 1 Tbsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of almond oil, and a few drops of lavender and peppermint essential oils

Step 2: Scrub feet with:
Brown sugar and honey scrub
1 cup brown sugar
3 tsp olive oil
1 tsp honey
2 drops lemon essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil

Step 3: Soak feet in 1 tablespoon of
Sea Salt Soak
1 cup coarse sea salt
2 drops lavendar
2 drops tea tree oil
2 drops eucalyptus oil

While soaking, take one foot out and scrub with a pumice stone and trim nails, then switch feet, then continue to soak.

Step 4: Dry feet. Moisturize with The Body Shop Hemp Foot Protector

My feet feel SO GOOD right now.

(If after the all-natural pedicure you want to paint your nails, I recommend using Honeybee Gardens nail polish.
