Homemade {Strawberry} Foot Scrub

My sister came over last night and we experimented with a new homemade foot scrub.  We were a little skeptic at first...but quickly became believers

Ingredients:
 8 to 10 Strawberries
2 TBS of Olive Oil
1 tsp of Sea Salt or Rock Salt


Preparation
Mix all ingredients.  I used a food processor which worked great.  Otherwise you can just mush 'em up til they get to looking like this... 
THEN...massage into feet, rinse and pat dry.

~This foot scrub works great and my feet were so soft afterwords. I massaged it in for about 5 minutes and let it sit for another 5 minutes. I hopped in the shower to rinse it off. ~

My feet and hands {yes we did our hands while we were at it} felt AMAZING after it was done!  AND...the best part...you most likely have all the ingredients in your house!  


Let me know if you try this little recipe out!

Blessings,
Ashley

This inspiring idea came from my frugal lifestyle!
