How to do aroma pedicure at home

A homemade pedicure freshens and smoothes your tired, rough feet. 


Essential oils, foot scrub and nail polish can make your toes look and feel pretty, whether padding around the house or peeking out from open-toes pumps. A good pedicure at home is a must.

Clip your toenails with a nail clipper. Make sure you do not clip your nails too close to the nail bed.

Put your feet into a large tub with warm water. Add a few drops of essential oil to the water for aromatherapy benefits. Soak your feet for about 10 minutes.

Gently rub pumice stone on your feet to slough off dry skin. Concentrate on rough spots and cracks. Dip your feet again in warm water. 

Apply a small amount of foot sugar or salt scrub to each of your foot. Gently rub it with your hands over the entire area to get rid of dry skin.

Use a towel to dry off your feet completely. Apply a generous amount of foot lotion (preferably mint or lavender) to your feet until it is completely absorbed. 

Pick a nail paint of your choice. Apply two coats of the polish and let your toenails dry for at least 20 minutes
