Naturally Soft Feet


It’s been a great summer here in L.A. Hot and dry, but it definitely feels like summer. If you’re anything like me, you might enjoy going shoe-less during these summer months. Actually, I enjoy it all the time. I love being barefoot, feeling closer to nature, and feeling the breeze on my toes. OK, actually I tend to feel concrete and laminate floors with my feet more than I feel nature, but in my dream world, it’s all earth, sand, and water. The point is… going barefoot makes rough feet, and rough feet aren’t good for adorable shoes. Fear not! I have a natural treatment for those calloused feet of yours.

How to remove callouses and dead skin with natural ingredients to reveal naturally soft feet.


  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups vinegar
  • juice of one lemon
  • peppermint essential oil
  • shea butter
  • PUL fabric booties
  • Socks


  1. Dissolve the sugar in the hot water
  2. Combine sugar water, lemon juice, vinegar, and essential oil in a bowl or container big enough for your feet
  3. Soak for about 10-15 minutes
  4. Scrub, scrub, scrub your feet with a pumice stone
  5. Soak another 10-15 minutes
  6. Scrub, scrub, scrub again with your pumice stone
  7. Dry off your feet and apply a generous amount of shea butter all over them (I love this one)
  8. Cover in PUL fabric booties (or plastic wrap if you must)
  9. Put on socks and go to bed
  10. In the morning you should notice your wonderfully new, soft feet immediately
  11. Enjoy!


  • If you don’t have PUL fabric booties, or don’t know how to make them, you can just wrap the fabric around your feet (shiny side touching skin)
  • Shave your legs before bed for ultimate luxury
  • Do not try this if you have any cuts on your tootsies (lemon juice and vinegar in your cuts, ouch!)
  • If you have any health concerns about your feet (including diabetes) consult your doctor before you try this at home
