Our magnesium, turmeric and ginger DIY foot scrub combines the hydrating and circulation improving properties of magnesium salt, the healing properties of turmeric, and the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger, to awaken the senses and leave your feet feeling smooth and moisturised. Used weekly, your feet will look and feel amazing!
Magnesium is beneficial for many functions within the body. In this recipe, magnesium flakes assist with skin hydration, improving circulation, relieving stress, treating foot fungus, eliminating odours, and relieving muscle aches and cramping. Our magnesium salt flakes have been organically sourced from the salt plains of Western Australia and South Australia.
Turmeric is an antioxidant, with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It has been used for centuries in Hindu culture to heal and to keep the body healthy. It is also often used to treat conditions such as athlete’s foot and foot fungus.
The addition of ginger, along with the essential oils, gives this DIY foot scrub its lovely aroma. It will also assist with treating pain and inflammation.
Olive oil gives this DIY foot scrub moisturising benefits, working to soften the feet, and creating a barrier that helps to maintain moisture levels in the skin.
