This Week's 20% Off Coupon: SUMMERCOUTURE20

The lemon is one of my favorite all natural hair and beauty ingredients. One of my go-to recipes is a DIY lemon and lavender foot spritzer.

The DIY lemon and lavender foot spritzer beauty recipe works great for all seasons of the year whether you’re wearing sandals or knee high tight boots.

I constantly use lemons both internally and externally for my health, skin, hair and zesty taste in hot and cool teas.

In fact, even when my refrigerator is almost empty you’ll find a drawer full of lemons.

My friends tease me about my addiction to lemons for my health, beauty and hair, but I tell them I’d probably request lemons as my top food to take to a deserted island.

Detox Your Liver – Grow Healthier Hair With Lemons

Everyone morning I have a cup of fresh squeezed lemon in a cup of hot water to gently detox my liver and add a natural glow to my skin.

During the summer months in Dallas I love to whip up my favorite lemon and lavender foot spritzer which is very refreshing and acts as a natural foot aroma suppressant.

Lemon contains alpha hydroxy acids which are a key beauty ingredients.

Lavender is known for it relaxation properties. I spritz a mixture of lavender essential oils onto my bed linens and wrists every night before sleep. It works like a charm.

Ingredients For DIY Lemon And Lavender Foot Spritzer

You can’t go wrong with either lemon or lavender. If you’d like to duplicate my favorite Lemon And Lavender Foot Spritzer recipe follow the instructions below:

2 tablespoons or 30 ml witch hazel
5 drops of lavender essential oil (not synthetic)
5 drops of lemon essential oil (not synthetic)


Blend the essential oils with the witch hazel. Pour into a clean sterile amber or dark blue atomizer bottle. Shake well to mix.

Spritz on feet and toes. If stored in a dry, cool environment this blend will last up to two weeks.

Note:  If you wish, you can experiment with adding a few drops of fresh squeezed lemon juice into the mix. It adds an extra zest.

Dead Skin Cell Exfoliation

If you love lemons as much as I do you may want to consider the following DIY weekly exfoliation treatment for dead skin cells on your feet and ankles.

Simply cut a lemon in half. Dip the cut half in 1/2 teaspoon of white sugar.

Gently rub over your feet for a  few minutes. Rinse your feet completely.

Depending upon the condition of your feet, you may wish to use 1/2 lemon for each foot. Don’t overdo the exfoliation and use gentle movements.

The natural alpha hydroxy acid contained naturally in the lemons will remove dead cells and keep your feet feeling refreshed.

The lemon exfoliation recipe can be used before applying the lemon and lavender foot spritzer. Or it can be done at night while you’re relaxing.
