It’s been a while since I’ve had the time to get a relaxing pedicure at a salon. So long in face that my daughter saw my polish coming off and asked if she could pick the rest off herself. Ahhh! So weird!
So it was then that I knew that event if I couldn’t make an appointment at my favorite salon, I would make an appointment with myself for an organic pedicure using some of my favorite Neal’s Yard Remedies products.
There are several steps to a pedicure at home, but basically it boils down to the following three steps: soak, exfoliate, and moisturize. Keeping one product for each purpose on hand will mean that even when you don’t have time to go out and get a pedicure you can have a moment of zen and some beautiful feet!
Below, I have listed several NYR products for each category. Now to just make the choice in terms of scents, textures, and bonus ingredients (hi, Seaweed!) Link to all these products on one page here.
Also – please note that these are very clean products. They are made with
- NO PARABENS

Step 1: Soak your Feet!
The most relaxing part of an at home organic pedicure is the foot soak. Plan for 20 minutes. Give yourself time to sit and relax. I have listed below six options, but really it is two categories: bath salts or foaming bath. Read about the luxurious scents from organic essential oils!
- Lavender Bath Salts – We infuse mineral-rich sea salt crystals from South America with pure, organic lavender essential oil, sourced from the unspoilt foothills of the French Alps
- Seaweed and Arnica Bath Salts – with skin-loving seaweed extract from the coasts of Ireland and Brittany and traditionally soothing, wild growing arnica from France for a beautifully therapeutic bath
- Aromatic Bath Salts – with a soothing blend of organic marjoram, lavender and geranium essential oils
- Seaweed and Arnica Foaming Bath – Infusions of mineral-rich seaweed, comfrey and arnica are combined with pure essential oils of lemon, pine, juniper and lavender to ease tired muscles and restore a sense of vitality.
- Aromatic Foaming Bath – aromatherapy blend of lavender, Spanish marjoram and geranium essential oils
- Rose and Pomegranate Foaming Bath – my favorite scent! Sweet but peppy!
Step 2: Exfoliate! Pay attention to the heels!
In general, a polish has smaller particles than a scrub. But these are all fabulous.
- Rose & Geranium Body Polish – comes in a large tube. Love this scent. Great for the shower.
- Frankincense & Manderin Body Polish – A more gender-neutral scent.
- Geranium & Orange Body Scrub – my favorite! This gives so much moisture!
- Pumice Foot Scrub – comes in a small jar, convenient for travel.
Step 3: Moisturize
The last step is to moisturize. Your feet and legs will fell soooo good. The product you want may depend on the consistency or scent.
- Bee Lovely Body Lotion – slight orange scent. Comes in a pump bottle.
- Rose Body Cream – thicker than the lotion. Beautiful rose scent.
- Geranium & Orange Body Balm – Love this spa scent. A nice thick balm that melts into your skin!
- Comfrey & Mallow Foot Balm – Organic comfrey and nurturing mallow revitalise tired and over-worked feet to soften the skin.
Mix and match from the categories to create your own organic pedicure experience. 😍😍
Once your feet and legs are nicely moisturized it might be time to add your favorite polish. Since you’ve used the best organic ingredients already, you probably want to use high quality nail polish with less of the toxic chemicals.
