Summertime brings us stunning weather, as well as a lot of walking around and on the beach. Keeping your hands, feet, and skin looking good and healthy while out and about is just as important as keeping them from getting dry in the winter. Here are a few fun recipes to keep your feet looking pretty all summer long!

10 drops of Young Living’s Lemon Essential Oil
7 drops of Young Living’s Geranium Essential Oil
8 droppers (full) of rosehip oil

*Lemon is a photosensitive oil, so apply at least 12 hours before you spend time in the sun. I apply it at bedtime.
Our feet are often neglected and need a lot of TLC! Start with a foot soak. You can use a lot of different oils in your foot soak. Peppermint to energize and invigorate your feet. Lavender to soothe tired feet. Lemongrass to help clean the stink away after a long day.
Start with a large bowl or foot tub with hot water. Add in ¬¨¬∫ cup of epsom salts with about 5 drops of your chosen essential oil(s) added. Soak those feet for 10-15 minutes and then towel dry.
Wasn’t that nice? Next, do a coffee scrub to exfoliate your feet and make them really soft. (Sugar or salt also work really well.)
Glass Jar (about 7-8oz)

*Orange is a photosensitive oil, so use at least 12 hours before you spend time in the sun.
Last step, apply the Skin Luscious Body Cream to your feet! Your feet will love you a lot!
