Pumpkin Foot Scrub Recipe

Pumpkin, pumpkin everywhere!  Yep, it's fall!  This is the second in a five day series of pumpkin recipes.  I used organic pumpkin puree from home grown pumpkins.  Making your own puree is a labor of love.  First you have to cut the pumpkin and bake it to soften it.  Then I ran it through my food mill to get the puree.  It takes several hours, so I usually only do it every other year.  This was from last year's harvest that had been frozen.  That's why it's a bright orange and not brownish like you'd normally buy in the store.  If you used storebought canned pumpkin, be sure that you use the 100 percent pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.

Yes, that's a blue egg from my girls.  Isn't it pretty?

I'll spare you the photos of this scrub recipe in use because my feet are still very swollen from my bruised bone three weeks ago.  This morning I woke up and had ankles.  That was the first I'd seen them since the accident.  It didn't last long though.  My ankles now have half golf ball sized knots on each side.  Yuck!  Like I said, I'll spare you the photos.

Pumpkin puree is great for your skin!  It has alpha hydroxy acids that increase cell turnover, so it works to soften dead skin.  It also has vitamins A and C to soothe your skin.  Honey is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, so it keeps your feel clean and fresh.  The egg also helps soothe your skin.

Pumpkin Foot Scrub

Simply combine the three ingredients and massage on to your feet.  Wrap your foot with plastic wrap or an old towel and let sit for 15 minutes.  Rinse well and follow with your favorite lotion.  

You don't have to scrub your feet like you would with a sugar scrub.  The alpha hydroxy acids in the pumpkin do the work for you!  So put your feet up, read a book, and relax.
