Listerine Vinegar Sugar Scrub For Feet

This listerine vinegar sugar scrub for feet is a pampering DIY scrub that I use most every day for a cool, tingly exfoliation and for keeping my feet soft & sandal ready!

Listerine Vinegar Sugar Scrub for Feet

I absolutely love this listerine vinegar sugar scrub for feet!  It costs pennies to make with ingredients that I keep on hand, and it feels so fab and refreshing when massaged onto feet and legs. It is also a good scrub for elbows, knees, and other areas that are prone to dryness.

In one of my previous posts, Listerine Vinegar Foot Soak for Soft, Smooth Feet: Help or Hype?, Dr. Jo Herzog discussed some beneficial properties of listerine and vinegar.  Thymol (in Listerine) can kill bacteria and fungi, and acetic acid (in vinegar) has antibacterial properties, can soften dry skin, and can possibly eliminate mild athlete’s foot.

When I pamper my feet at home or give myself a pedicure, I start with the listerine vinegar foot soak and follow with the scrub. It is cool, tingly, and so refreshing. I keep a jar of the scrub in the shower and try to use it several times a week. The more often I use it, the softer my feet stay.

For a double dose of cool and tingle, I add Peppermint Oil to this scrub. Adding just a few drops can increase the “wow” factor of this scrub significantly. It will leave feet icy cool and smelling and feeling great.

This scrub makes a lovely hostess or bread and butter gift, especially if creatively presented. I think a glass bowl with a honey dipper is a great idea. To be really creative, it could be put into a real honeypot like this one. #whosayshoneypotsareonlyforhoney? How cute would that be?

So there you have it~my fave, DIY for pennies, pampering, exhilarating listerine vinegar sugar scrub for feet! I hope you’ll give it a try; it really keeps feet soft if used regularly.

I’d love to hear back from you if you try this or have any of your own savvy scrub suggestions to share! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
