Rosemary and Peppermint Foot Scrub

This simple recipe for Rosemary and Peppermint Foot Scrub ticks every box. It is super quick, super easy and super cheap to make, and the resulting product is a real treat that everyone will appreciate and use.

 

For us, here in the UK, we are almost at the end of the school year. Consequently, I have a to-do list as long as my arm, and included on that list is the Teacher's Appreciation Gifts. I'm sure everyone has different thoughts on these gifts, but mine are as follows; I don't want to spend a load of money, it's the kids who should be putting the majority of the effort in to making them, and of course I want them to look gorgeous, and for the teachers to feel fabulously appreciated!

This simple recipe ticks every box. It really is super quick, super easy and super cheap to make, and the resulting product is a real treat that everyone will appreciate and use. After all, everyone's feet will benefit from a little tender loving care, and if you do know someone with perfect feet, you can be sure they are spending plenty of time (and money) keeping them in that condition!

This recipe is endlessly adaptable; you can use Epsom salts, sea salt, sugar or a mix. You can use any number of oils and fragrances, and you can add in dried herbs or fresh. I imagine our teacher's feet to be hot and tired at this time of year, so have chosen something that I hope to be relaxing, refreshing and restorative!

We used:
2 cups Epsom Salts
1 cup Coconut Oil
10 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
About 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Rosemary

 

For this scrub we used Coconut Oil, which is solid at room temperature, so we gently melted it. You could also use Olive or Almond Oil, and if you wanted, add in a little Shea or Cocoa Butter.

We added the Peppermint Essential Oil to the cool, liquid oil. Due to their concentration, Essential Oils should never be applied straight to the skin, but rather added to a carrier oil as we are doing here. When making home-made cosmetics, always ensure you list all the ingredients with your gift, as not all essential oils, or indeed other products are suitable for all recipients.

 

Simply throw in the rest of the ingredients. How dry or oily you make the scrub is a matter of your own personal preference. As this is going to be a foot scrub, I think its nice to have it quite wet with oil to really encourage the user to massage it in well.

Give everything a really good mix, and spoon into pretty little jars.  Then decorate with a pretty gift tag and ribbon.

Once you realise quite how easy scrubs are to make, you'll be gifting them to everyone!  We customise ours to the recipient. Last weekend we made one for a favourite, very elegant aunt.  We used half Epsom Salts and half Demerara sugar to give us a lovely golden base and added a beautiful black cardamom scent!

      I think you would be able to fill about 5 Tracy, with the amounts stated in the recipe. If I wanted to make a certain number I’d probably use the container as a measure for the salt I was using and then work from there, you can add as much or little oil as you want for the consistency that suits you, just make sure you add any essentials oils to a little of the oil to make sure it mixes in well before adding it to the salt 🙂
