Candy Cane Peppermint Foot Scrub is made of pure, simple ingredients that exfoliate your tootsies and keeps them soft and smooth.

watkins organic food coloringBy separating the course sea salt into two bowls after combining all the ingredients, you can make 2 colors.  Of course, if it’s a candy cane, then it needs to be red!   

If I do use any coloring in my organic beauty treatment recipes, it’s an organic food coloring, like Watkins or vegetable powder, like beet.

I found this box at Target’s, so I know you’ll be able to pick up a box if you’d like.

Then you just need to layer the two colors in a lovely clear glass container to show off your fabulous Candy Cane Peppermint Foot Scrub.  (I’ll tell you about the gift hang tag a little later!)
