DIY: Foot Mask with Bergamot Essential Oil

Spring isn’t too far around the corner and that means sandals and flip-flops!! If you are anything like me, I don’t do too much to my feet during the winter, other than slather cream on them at night and stuff them in socks! But, with the warmer weather on the way, it is time to start getting the feet ready. You don’t have to stress about cracked heels on your feet this spring/summer with this nourishing foot mask made with Bergamot essential oil (and other feet-friendly ingredients) for nourished and beautiful feet.

Why use a foot mask? Since our feet have the most pores per square inch than any other area of the body, it is important to remember to treat the feet too! What you put on the feet will absorb into the rest of the body, so do your best to gather high quality, organic ingredients for this foot mask.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup organic Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons organic raw honey
  • 2 splashes  Fractionated Coconut Oil (buy here)
  • 1 stalk organic celery
  • 6 drops Bergamot essential oil (buy here)

Notes about ingredients used:

  • The probiotics in Greek yogurt help deliver beneficial proteins and the lactic acid it contains rids the surface of old cells, making way for radiant, fresh skin.
  • Celery is rich in zinc, which helps to repair dry, cracked skin. Celery also carries vitamins and is cleansing and detoxifying.
  • Raw honey is a natural humectant, contains beneficial enzymes and antioxidants, and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Bergamot essential oil is calming and soothing to the skin.

Directions:

  1. Grate stalk of celery and drain excess moisture in strainer or with paper towel.
  2. Add celery and remaining ingredients to food processor or blender.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Ready a wet washcloth or sit by tub.

  7. Rinse off and enjoy your nourished and moisturized feet.
