Makes 1 ounce
Prep time: 10 minutes
1 ounce coconut oil
3 drops rosemary essential oil
3 drops peppermint essential oil
½ cup cornmeal
Combine coconut oil with rosemary and peppermint oils in a bowl. Slowly stir in the cornmeal until it forms a thick paste. Apply paste to the soles of your feet in a circular scrubbing motion.
Note: Adapted from a recipe found in the 25 October 1985 Indiana Gazette (Indiana, PA). The original recipe used sweet almond oil instead of coconut oil. Both are carrier oils. Other carrier oils include olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, grapeseed oil, canola oil, and walnut oil.
