Our secret to smooth legs and sandal ready summer feet is found in the pantry.

Here’s what you need:

1/2 C ground oatmeal (about 8 pulses in the food processor)
1/4 C packed brown sugar
1/4 C white sugar
1/2 C olive oil
1 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix with a spatula until well blended and store in a sealed jar.  (We save old lotion jars to fill and keep any excess in small tupperware containers.)

Use in the shower to remove dead skin from feet, elbows, and knees.   We also love using the scrub on our legs before shaving.  The sugar lifts up any little hairs and the oil works with your regular shaving cream to help prevent irritation and nicks.

For my daughter’s bridal shower last week we filled 2 ounce baby food jars, wrapped around a label, and tied on a bow!
