5 Easy Homemade Foot Scrubs For Exfoliation

By Anubha Das

Updated - Aug. 10, 2021 4 min read

You stick to your skincare routine without fail to keep your skin glowing. But how frequently do you show special attention to your feet? After a long and hectic day, your feet, like your face, become weary. They also require extra care and attention in order to look their best. What if you could offer them to a spa-like experience right in your own home? I've gathered a collection of simple and easy DIY foot scrubs in this post.


Before we get into the recipes, there are a few things to bear in mind:

  • To check for allergic responses, do a patch test with the foot scrub, especially if you're using essential oils.
  • Before applying a scrub, soak your feet in warm water for 10 minutes. This will make the massage more enjoyable.


Let's look at the recipes now.


1. Peppermint Foot Scrub With Epsom Salt



  • 1 cup Epsom salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive or coconut oil
  • 3-4 drops peppermint oil




  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and transfer to a glass jar.
  2. Scrub your feet with this combination for 10 minutes. Continue to leave it on for another ten minutes.
  3. After washing, apply a moisturiser.


How it works

Aches and pains are relieved by peppermint oil. Coconut and olive oils hydrate and soften the feet. This scrub works wonders on weary feet and is suitable for all skin types.

2. Coconut Oil and Salt Foot Scrub



  • 1 cup salt (use Epsom or any bath salt)
  • ¼ cup of coconut oil
  • 3-4 drops of any essential oil
  • ¼ cup vitamin E oil (optional)




  1. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients and keep in a jar. Set it aside for a couple of days.
  2. Scrub your feet gently for at least 20 minutes with the combination.


How it works

This is the finest foot scrub for cracked heels that you can make at home. It rejuvenates your feet and is safe for all skin types. Coconut oil keeps the skin hydrated, which helps to treat a variety of skin problems. It also maintains the skin barrier and has anti-inflammatory properties.

3. Brown Sugar and Olive Oil Exfoliating Foot Scrub



  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 drops of essential oil (chamomile or peppermint)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda




  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, olive oil, and baking soda.
  2. Scrub your feet with the liquid after adding the essential oil.
  3. Allow it to sit for at least 20 minutes before washing it off.
  4. Apply a moisturiser afterward.


How it works

This is the most basic of all the DIY foot scrubs, but it works wonders for keeping your feet happy and moisturised. Sugar grains gently exfoliate the skin, while aromatic oils soothe your feet.

4. DIY Coffee Ground Foot Scrub



  • 2 tablespoons coffee grounds
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (coarse)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil




  1. Prepare a thick paste by combining all of the ingredients.
  2. Massage it in for 15-20 minutes all over your feet.
  3. Wash away.


How it works

This homemade foot scrub improves the texture of the skin on your feet. Coffee grounds are great for cleaning and eliminating dead skin cells from your foot. The feet get softer as a result of this.

5. Oatmeal Foot Scrub



  • 2 tablespoons bath salt
  • 2 teaspoons oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2-3 tablespoons water




  1. In a mixing dish, combine all of the ingredients and form a paste.
  2. Scrub your feet for 10 minutes with the paste.
  3. After washing, apply a moisturiser.


How it works

The gritty texture of oatmeal makes it an excellent exfoliant. It also softens and relieves small rashes and itches on your foot. Its exfoliating properties are enhanced when combined with bath salt and baking soda.
