How To Give Yourself A Hand & Foot Scrub Treatment

For silky smooth hands: Wet a towel with hot water. Twist out the extra water. Wrap both hands in the hot towel until it begins to cool off. While your hands are still moist, scoop 1 tsp of the scrub into your hands and rub together for at least one minute. Give extra attention to the cuticle area to loosen any dry skin around the nail bed. Let sit for another 2-3 minutes to give the coconut oil time to soften your skin. Rinse your hands with warm water and pat dry. Apply favorite moisturizer.

For soft, smooth feet: Wrap a hot, wet towel around your foot, one at a time. Apply 1 teaspoon of the essential oil scrub to each foot. Rub the scrub all over your foot, giving extra attention to heels, the outer sides of the foot and the nail bed. Let salt scrub sit for 2-3 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Seal in moisture with your favorite moisturizer.
