Simple Foot Scrub Recipe

It’s really easy to make a lovely foot or body scrub from ingredients that you have in your home pantry or from the local supermarket. You’ll need the following:

  • 125g copha (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • a few drops of essential oil (your local chemist is usually a good source)

Using hand beaters (l use my kenwood chef for larger quantities), whip the room temperature copha in a small bowl until it is light & fluffy. Add the water, essential oil and white sugar and keep beating until very well combined.

This scrub is quite thick – you can add small amounts of olive oil to it a tablespoon at a time, beating well between additions. This will loosen it a little and make it more ‘spreadable’.

Store in a small plastic container and use within 3 months.

Experiment with different sugars for differing results. Raw brown sugar is good for a foot scrub because the crystals are slightly bigger; castor sugar or cooking salt are good for all over body scrubs. You can also add things like poppyseeds, lavender buds from your garden, even dried flower petals like rose or marigold (calendula). This recipe is probably best as a foot scrub as it is quite greasy and extremely moisturising – this doesn’t bother me, but some people might like something a little ‘lighter’ for all over body use. (l’ll be posting another scrub recipe soon!)
