The Bite:

Better yet: on your feet. Put a round of this DIY, paraben-free, Mojito-inspired scrub on sandal-bruised tootsies – from Head 2 Toe Mobile Spa’s Jenny Perrillo, who sets up at-home spa parties with her handmade vegan and organic lotions, and nontoxic nail polishes. And since most of what you need’s probably already in your kitchen, you won’t have to foot much of a bill.

Make It : Mojito-Infused Pedicure Scrub 5 minutes, makes enough for 2-4 uses

What You Need: (local and organic whenever possible)

• Medium bowl
• 1/2 lime
• 3 sprigs of spearmint (about 12 leaves)
• Muddler
• 1/4 c. sunflower oil (or olive oil if you have severe dry skin)
• 1/2 c. raw sugar
• Spoon
• Empty 4- to 6-ounce jar

Directions:
1. Squeeze lime juice into bowl. Peel and remove the lime’s rind, and add remaining pulp and spearmint. Muddle together for 30 seconds to squeeze the essential oils from the mint leaves into the lime pulp. Add remaining ingredients, and mix together quickly. Spoon scrub into glass jar.

2. Apply to feet, working it into your heels. Rinse clean and pat dry.

3. After use, close the lid tightly, and refrigerate the rest of the scrub for up to 30 days.
