Soak the feet in warm water infused with white rum and essential oil or cinnamon or clove.

Prep nails. Use a callus eliminator and wrap feet in plastic wrap to let it work. Remove.

In the palm of your hand, blend hot buttered rum mix (homemade or store-bought) with a teaspoon of rum. Exfoliate feet and legs with the scrub. Use a foot file on heels, then rinse.
