Foot Scrub


Water phase:
1 oz aloe vera Gel
1 oz glycerin
14 oz distilled water
Oil phase:
1.5 oz stearic acid
2 oz emulsifying wax
4 oz meadowfoam seed oil
.5 oz shea butter
1 Tbsp fragrance oil or essential oil
1 Tsp vitamin E oil
1 Tsp grapefruit seed extract
2 Tbsp cornmeal
3 Tbsp pumice powder
1 Tbsp apricot kernel meal


Mix ingredients for water phase and set aside. Melt oil/butter and wax in double boiler. Hold at 175 degrees for 20 minutes. Add the water phase very slowly while mixing until it becomes thick and creamy. Add fragrance or essential oil, Vitamin E and grapefruit seed extract and mix some more. Add cornmeal, pumice and apricot kernel meal and mix to incorporate. You can add more or less water depending on thickness desired. Pour into clean sterilized jars and let cool completely before capping. Produces a very nice lotion based scrub and can be used on the entire body but is very nitty gritty.

Customer Testimonial

"I just had to write you and tell you that your company is top notch! I inadvertently used the wrong zip code when I ordered my products. however, you caught the error and delivered it to the correct location. I cannot tell you how grateful I am, because I really needed these products today. This is my first order from FNWL. Your packaging is superb. Nothing is leaking or torn and no product is wasted (which is something that I cannot say about all suppliers). I will be placing another order next week, and just wanted you to know that I appreciate a great business supplier that will take the time to ensure quality to their customers. Thank you!!!!"
