Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice: DIY Peppermint Foot Scrub
The busy holiday season has many of us running around for gifts and goodies, resulting in achy and tired feet.
So the next time you’re out, pick up these three easy-to-find ingredients to make this DIY peppermint foot scrub from Mirbeau Inn & Spa, and relief and relaxation will be on its way (you’ll likely have at least two of these ingredients in your pantry already!).
Peppermint is helpful in pain relief as well as in treating stress and anxiety.
“You can really make this recipe with any scent of essential oil based on personal preference,” says Matthew Dower, general manager of Mirbeau Inn & Spa, Skaneateles, New York. “It also makes a great gift for the holidays!”
Make. Relax. Enjoy. Repeat.
1 cup granulated sugar
Olive oil or coconut oil (amount is up to you!)
A few drops of peppermint essential oil
- Pour the granulated sugar into a mixing bowl and gradually add your favorite olive oil or coconut oil. Mix together until you have a slightly wet, but grainy consistency (really, whatever looks good to you).
- Add a few drops of peppermint essential oil. Transfer the scrub to a bottle or jar.
