30 Day Challenge - Day 8
Hello. Here I am starting my second week with a bang haha :) 8 days done 22 to go. As I wrote 22 days left it kind of imedetally felt like the target is reachable and that I am getting closer! It is definitely a nice feeling and I love the process of this challenge as well. I was looking for some inspiration today for the scrub and I came across black lava salt, which I have never heard about before, but turns out it contains charcoal (luckily for me I have it in my cupboard) :)
Since childhood in my family we have used activated charcoal for upset stomachs. And now I put in a foot scrub to help remove toxins out of the body and gently to exfoliate the skin.
Charcoal Foot Scrub (Messy, messy, messy)
I just mixed it all together and viola! I sprayed oil a few times until the charcoal and rock salt became moist. OK, this is the messiest foot bath I ever made :D:D:D !!! I gently rubbed my feet with the mixture but it had no bonding in it and just kept on falling into the water. In the end it just became a soak and it became very clear that the charcoal with the mixture was sticking on my feet! OH NO! I had soaked it for about 10 minutes and I had to wash it of in the bath. Apart from that my feet feel the softest after this soak than the others I don't know if it is because of the weird combination or because it has been 8 days since I am doing this! Would I do this again? Yes, but just in the bathroom due to how messy it is! This is the blog I got some inspiration for the charcoal from, you can find it HERE.
