Coconut lime foot scrub steps

Here’s how to make the DIY foot scrub. You don’t need a bunch of time, it’s pretty easy.

The ingredients and supplies you need to make coconut lime foot scrub.

1. Melt The Coconut Oil

To get started making the foot scrub you’ll need to melt the coconut oil. The melting point of coconut oil is a little warmer than room temperature, so it’s usually solid like butter when you open the jar.

Measure 3/4 cup of coconut oil into a microwavable container. Melt in the microwave a little at a time until the coconut oil becomes liquid. It doesn’t take much heat! Pour the coconut oil into the mixing bowl.

2. Measure Salt

Next measure 2 cups of salt into the mixing bowl. You can use sea salt or kosher salt. Salt is a great exfoliant and perfect for a foot scrub.

3. Add Vitamin E

Measure 3 Tablespoons of Vitamin E oil to the mix. You can find Vitamin E oil at the drug store. Vitamin E oil is touted to have all kinds of healing benefits, but we mostly like how soft it makes skin feel. Mix these ingredients together.

4. Add Essential Oil

The scrub should already smell delicious from the coconut oil. To blend lime scent into the scrub, add 10-20 drops of lime essential oil. Stir everything together. (We tried adding lime zest to a version of this scrub. It looked fabulous when we put it in, but it didn’t stay green and got kind of ugly over time, so we eliminated it.)

5. Dispense The Scrub

Spoon the Coconut Lime Foot Scrub into a pretty jar. Clean up the outside of the jar with a paper towel and a little window cleaner if it gets oily.

6. Label The Scrub

To label the foot scrub, download the label (right-click to save and download) and print it on cardstock. Cut it out. To laminate the label, cover one side with clear packing tape. (We had to overlap two pieces to make it wide enough.) Flip the label over and repeat to laminate the other side. Cut the tape-covered label out leaving a 1/8″ border of tape all the way around the label.

Use double-stick tape to attach the label to the jar lid.

  1. I love this recipe! I think that aside from personal use, this DIY coconut lime foot scrub is perfect as a gift as well! Thank you so much for sharing, can’t wait to whip up my own. Also, I think we can personalize the use of essential oils aside from lime 🙂
