Natural Bath and Body Care
Finding a luxurious bath product that is all natural sometimes feel like a chore, luckily I have Target on my side! Tom’s of Maine at Target includes a new line of Natural Body Wash and bar soap products including:
- Creamy Coconut, with virgin coconut oil* (also available as Body Wash)
- Lavender Tea Tree, with raw shea butter* (also available as Body Wash)
- Fragrance Free Sensitive, with aloe vera (Target exclusive)
I love Tom’s of Maine’s natural bar soaps and body washes because they contain no parabens, no artificial fragrance, no preservatives, and are sulfate-free. (Learn more at Tom’s of Maine).
DIY Foot Scrub Recipe
A great pedicure is heavenly! I love having my tired dry feet soaked, exfoliated and moisturized until they are in tip top shape. Unfortunately, I never have enough time to get to the spa to pamper and soothe my dry feet.
This homemade magnesium salt scrub is the perfect solution. It combines magnesium and sea salt to relax and exfoliate with other soothing ingredients to clean and moisturize. In just a few minutes you’ll have soft supple feet that are ready to show off.
- 2 cups Epsom Salt
- 1/2 cup Coarse Sea Salt
- 3 tablespoons Body Wash (choose your favorite scent)
- 1 tablespoon Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil, or Avocado Oil
- 2-3 drops Essential Oil (optional)
- In a large glass or ceramic bowl, combine salts, body wash, and oil.
- Stir until well combined.
- Spoon into an air-tight jar.
- Add ½ cup Bubbling Foot Scrub & Soak to warm running water. Soak feet for 15 minutes then use a loofah, pumice stone or foot file to gently slough off dry skin.
- You can also add 1 cup of bubbling Foot Scrub and Soak to a warm bath for a relaxing full body soak before bed.
- For extra moisturizing apply olive oil or almond oil to feet after exfoliating then pull on cotton socks and sleep with the socks on.
Tip: Bubbling foot scrub and soak makes a fantastic gift when paired with a scented soap and body wash.

Hello Lovely Lady, My name is Karen and I live in the UK. I LOVE your website and have signed up for newsletters. I am hoping to try the bubbling foot scrub recipe but we don’t have Toms products over here, well not that I have seen. What alternatives can I use?
I look forward to a reply
Karen, any bath gel or body wash will work! Hope you enjoy. -Bren
Can you use Castille Soap instead of bath gel or body wash?
Yes, you can substitute Castille Soap but it will not bubble very much.
Hi, Bren. Do you have a link for the jars and clips you used to store this? Thanks!
Thanks for asking, Lori. I love these jars! They are meant to look like antique German canning jars. Mine came from a local store but you can also get them from Amazon. I also love their tulip jars.
