I walk around barefoot a lot and my feet really show it. I love to use this Peppermint Foot Scrub after summer to refresh my feet and remove any dried skin on my heels and all over my feet. It’s also great in the winter when the cold weather leaves my whole body needing a moisture lift.
This Homemade Peppermint Foot Scrub moisturizes, soothes, and refreshes your feet (and hands!)
A Peppermint Foot Scrub is one of the first DIY beauty recipes I ever tried. It’s super easy, fast, and a great gift for friends or loved ones!
An added bonus about this spa treatment is that I absolutely LOVE the way my hands feel when I’m finished. It’s like a two-in-one hand and foot conditioning treatment. You’ll really notice the silkiness left behind after rinsing.
The avocado oil I used in this recipe is a well-known emollient. The oil comes from the pit of the avocado fruit, and it’s rich in vitamins and perfect for deeply moisturizing dry skin. Learn more about our favorite carrier oils for bath and beauty uses.
If you’re gifting this item then it’s so cute to use a chalkboard lid that you can write on the label. I found this jar at the Target dollar spot. That’s right, $1! Then I just added a scrap piece of lace and the gift is perfectly homemade with love!
