Grapefruit Foot Scrub

Treat your feet to a "cheap date"... or make wonderful gifts for friends who spend a lot of time on their feet - moms, retail or health-care workers... and lots of other women (and men) who should take a little more time for themselves.

Recipe adapted from The Grain & Salt Society newsletter (fall 2004)


  • 1 lb Celtic (Brittany grey) sea salt
  • 1 cup sweet almond oil
  • 4 Tbsp aloe vera gel
  • 5-8 drops grapefruit essential oil


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing with your hands until well blended. Adjust the amount of essential oil if stronger fragrance is desired.
  2. Pack in glass jars or small canning containers. Tie with raffia or ribbon. Attach a note including the recipe or instructions for use: “Massage into feet thoroughly. Wrap feet in hot towels for ten minutes, then rinse feet with warm water.”

If you’d like to make a super-charged detoxifying scrub, try adding 1/4 cup bentonite clay or a few teaspoons of bentonite liquid and a few tablespoons of spirulina.
