    1. Glad you have all the ingredients, make it right away. Yes, it smells yummy. Unfortunately, I can’t eat it…haha. Thanks for reading, Veleita.

    1. Hi Michelle,
      If you store this cinnamon foot scrub in the fridge, yes it would get rock hard as it contains coconut oil.
      But it would stay just fine on the countertop.
      Another reason why your DIY sugar scrubs may get rock hard is if you scoop with wet hands. The water would melt the sugar and then it becomes candy. lol.
      So use a dry spoon to scoop some scrub into another container to use for your DIY pedicure.
      I hope this helps.
      xx, Buayifa.

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Since Eucalyptus oil or all essential oils are quite strong, 5 to 10 drops should be okay.
      I hope this helps.
      Thanks for reading and trying to make the cinnamon foot scrub.
