Mermaid Foot Scrub
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are all about making DIY sugar scrubs and DIY salt scrubs for the tub. That silky feeling when you get done rubbing your feet with a nice, coarse mermaid foot scrub and the smell…oh, that’s just heaven. Put me in a tub with a mermaid bath bomb and mermaid foot scrub and I’m in heaven. And don’t get me started on lemon exfoliating cubes…you just go ahead and lock me in that bathroom, I’ll be just fine.
But, this mermaid foot scrub is definitely a must, even if I’m doing a minimalist shower before heading out to my summer sandals. The reason? How the mermaid sugar scrub makes my heels look fab. Let’s get started.

How to Store and Gift Homemade Mermaid Foot Scrub
- Store the mermaid sugar scrub in an airtight container for up to the life of the oil you use (coconut oil is about 24 months).
- Sugar scrubs are best when packaged in single-use containers. If water enters the scrub, mold or bacteria can develop.
- Storing sugar scrubs away from the shower is best, and outside of the bathroom is even better. Hermetic jars (with the seal) are best for scrub storage.
- Storing a sugar scrub in the refrigerator can be refreshing on tired feet, but it won’t extend the life of the scrub.
- If gifting, add a tag or sticker which has tips on use and storage.
- Vary the essential oils to the mixture to turn your mermaid sugar scrub into a calming, aromatherapy enriched experience for any occasion.
How Do I Make this Mermaid Scrub?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial and if you have any questions, just ask them in the comments below. Note: all items are safe to be used on the skin, feet, and lips and should be packaged in an air-tight container.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup cold pressed coconut oil
- teal blue soap colorant or mica powder
- optional: 5-10 drops of essential oil
- optional: blue and/or purple sugar sprinkles or colored sugar
- Spoon or Stir Stick
- Mix the coconut oil and sugar together in a bowl. Add 2 drops of colorant and essential oil, if using. Because coconut oil will solidify if it is cooler, using your hands may activate more of the oil, so be aware that the consistency can change.
- Place your sugar scrub in your jar and add sprinkles, if desired.
If the scrub is not as solid as you'd like, add more sugar. If you feel it is too dry, add in a dab of coconut oil until you get the consistency you want.
