Would you like to make a coconut lime foot scrub?
This homemade foot scrub is so pretty. The way the green lime zest stands out from the white sugar makes it a dreamy natural skincare product.
What I love most about this scrub is the strong lime aroma blending with the coconut and eucalyptus oil.
Among all the citrus fruits, I think lime has the most potent taste and fragrance, even if lemon has made a name for itself.
If you have seen most of my DIY skincare recipes, you’d remember I always encourage you to adjust the ingredients the way you prefer.
Because making DIY scrubs is not a one-way street – you can try several ways until you find what works for you.
So every single one you make is unique.
As for me, I always like my scrubs a little on the crumbly side, not too runny, especially DIY scrub recipes that contain coconut oil.
The last thing I want to say before we make this scrub is, if you are looking for a mother’s day gift, this is a great handmade gift idea.
Now let’s go make it!

How to use your DIY lime foot scrub
You can use this DIY lime foot scrub as a weekly foot exfoliator or as part of your at-home pedicure.
If you are using this as a regular foot scrub in the shower, I suggest you wash and exfoliate your feet first before taking a shower.
Yes, you may end up washing the coconut oil off your feet, but you’d limit the chances of slipping in the shower.
So safety first.
Moreover, you can always apply coconut oil to your feet after bathing.
But if you use this DIY coconut lime foot scrub for an at-home pedicure, use it after buffing your feet with a pumice stone or foot file.
It would act as a smoothening and moisturizing exfoliator, and you won’t need to moisturize your feet afterward.
Still, be careful when stepping into your flip flops.

So that’s how to make a DIY coconut lime sugar foot scrub for feet exfoliation.
Don’t forget this is an awesome mother’s day gift idea for all the mamas in your life.
And while you are gifting other mamas, remember to keep one jar for yourself.
