Apple Pie Foot Scrub
- 3/4 C Organic Brown Sugar
- 1/2 C Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil
- 4 Drops Onycha Essential Oil
- 4 Drops Cassia Essential Oil
- 4 Drops Clove Essential Oil
- 4 Drops Ginger Essential Oil
Place organic brown sugar and organic coconut oil into pint jar and stir until combined well. Add all essential oils, stirring until completely combined.
To Use: Wet feet. Scoop out a small amount of scrub and rub into the bottoms of your feet in a circular motion to remove dead skin. Rinse with warm water.
Onycha Essential Oil is one of the 12 Oils of Ancient Scripture. It has been commonly used as an astringent to help clean wounds, but is also used for itchy, dry skin. We have mixed it with Cassia, Clove, and Ginger to create not only a heavenly scent, but a blend that is known to be very antiseptic.
Cassia is in the cinnamon family and one of the 12 Oils of Ancient Scripture as well. Cassia has that wonderful aromatic smell of cinnamon. It nourishes the body and spirit by stimulating feelings of joy, happiness, and emotional healing. The ancient Egyptians used the oil to ward off the plague and also used it in embalming practices. The oil contains a high number (5-10%) of phenols, which makes it a very strong antiseptic. A study showed that the oil killed a culture of Typhoid bacillus in less than half an hour. The FDA has not yet approved the statements above, but their long time use and documented properties are wide-spread.
