AmAzInG Homemade Peppermint Foot Cream

 
AmAzInG Homemade Peppermint Foot Cream
 
I originally found this recipe at Frugally Sustainable and
I fell in love with it the first time I used it.
It wasn’t just the great peppermint smell,
 but it was what it did to my feet.
For the last several years my feet have taken quite a beating.
They were rough, dry, cracking,
and had some kind of fungus that would not go away no matter what I put on them!
This cream is AmAzInG!!
I now have my soft, non fungus feet back!
Don’t worry, I won’t scare you with before and after pictures.
You will just have to believe me and make some up for your self!!

Homemade Peppermint Foot Cream
(slightly adapted from original recipe)
 
Here’s what you will need:
1 tablespoon (0.5 ounces) Cocoa Butter, firmly packed
1/4 cup (2 ounces) Shea Butter, firmly packed
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) Coconut Oil, firmly packed
1 tablespoon Avocado Oil
1 teaspoon (about 12 capsules) Vitamin E Oil
1/4 teaspoon Tea Tree Essential Oil
1/4 teaspoon Peppermint Essential Oil
1-2 teaspoons Peppermint Extract (optional)
 
In a double boiler, melt the cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil, and avocado oil.
Mix well and remove from heat.
 
Let cool until it starts to set up. I usually put it in the fridge or freezer to help this process go a little faster. Once cooled, add in remaining ingredients.
 
Using a hand mixer, whip lotion and then pour into desired container.
 
 
 
Enjoy!
Don’t feel limited to only use this on your feet.
I think it is a great all around lotion!

    Robyn,

    My Daughter-in-law is taking an anti-fungal medication for her feet. She has said she will need to take it for at least a year. I don’t know what sort of deal she has going on with her feet, but I wonder if this will help her out with the fungus. was what you had a similar thing? if you feel this may help her, I will make some of this up and have her use it. How long did it take before you saw improvement?
    Thank you.

      Hi! My feet would crack and bleed between the toes, and my toenails were all funcky. I never talked to my doctor about it. I just tried over the counter anti fungal meds. I am not a doctor, so I really can’ t say if it would help her or not. I just know from my personal experience it helped mine a lot! I was trying to remember how long I used it before I noticed it helping, and I would say it was probablly a couple weeks. I used it in the morning and at night. I’ve been using it several months now once or twice a day. I love the peppermint smell so I use it as a regular lotion now too. ~ Robyn

    Robyn,
    I am thinking of buying this in your etsy shop, but for some reason, I don’t see anything. Can I ask what the cost of a jar is, and if I decide to order rather than make it myself, how would I go about requesting this?
    thank you.

    Hi Dori,

    Sorry about that, I was trying to figure out the postage charges.

    It is listed at $9.99 for a 4 oz jar. Shipping on one item is $3.48.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    If you soak your feet in baking soda in warm/hot water for 15 minutes, it beats down the fungus and naturally softens your skin. Go to the dollar store and pick up an rectangle bin. It feels so good after a workout or stressful day to soak your feet. Afterwards use pumice or Pedegg. It won’t miraculously happen over night but once very few days. after a couple of weeks..don’t go crazy on the pumice or maybe use pumice stone every other time, and you’ll slowly get your feet back. I also use lotion and socks afterwards but if you are trying to get rid of fungus I would let my feet air out. Also if you have fungus..get rid of old sneakers, wash flip flops etc. A bit of baking soda inside your shoes will also helps kill fungus and freshen but sneakers..throw them away. Good luck and take care of your feet often.
