Homemade Soothing Peppermint Foot Cream

Peppermint oil gives relief to sore, swollen and overworked feet at the end of a long day! If your feet are extra tired, try this peppermint foot soak first – it is cooling and energizing and can relieve stress when soaking for 10-15 minutes. If you have extra dry feet, these remedies for cracked heels can help.

Last weekend my family and I went to a river to swim in northern Vermont. The next day my sister-in-law and I were complaining about our heels and how the dirt from the river bed had settled in the cracks of our heels and it wouldn’t come clean. I wish I had brought some of this amazing peppermint foot cream with me so we could have used it to soothe our aching feet from walking on the rocks and heal up the cracks in our feet.

This peppermint foot cream recipe is a rich, thick cream that feels wonderful on tired, achy feet.

Peppermint oil is known for its cooling and calming abilities which makes it an amazing bedtime activity. Peppermint also activates the part of our brain responsible for our wake/sleep cycles.

As Dr. Bryan Raudenbush, a researcher and professor of psychology at Wheeling Jesuit University, explains, “The peppermint scent activates the area of our brain that puts us to sleep at night and wakes us up in the morning”

What is Peppermint Lotion Good For?

Peppermint oil relieves foot pain, rheumatism and muscle pains. It also improves circulation which helps with skin itching and reduces redness in the skin.

Peppermint essential oil is a great option if your feet are sensitive and achy. The analgesic ingredients combined with the anti inflammatory ones make this oil an amazing treatment for everyone with joint pain. If the joints and nerves in your feet and toes feel painful or stiff, you can use peppermint oil to alleviate joint and nerve pain. If you have rheumatoid arthritis and find your feet to be the most painful part of your body, topical treatment with peppermint oil has the potential to help you manage the symptoms and soothe the pain.

And last but not least, if you use peppermint oil your feet will smell wonderfully fresh. You can add a few drops of this oil to your foot soak for a nice aroma and an amazingly refreshing feeling. Or you could mix it with a carrier oil and apply it as an overnight foot treatment.

I love to use shea butter because it’s moisturizing and rich in vitamins A and E and doesn’t leave an oily residue on your skin. It’s also great for dry skin because it leaves skin soft.

Coconut oil is naturally anti-fungal and antibacterial, which makes it an excellent choice for a foot cream recipe.

Beeswax is amazing because it forms a protective barrier on the skin that helps protect it from environmental effects while holding in the moisture.

Peppermint Foot Cream Recipe

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup shea butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 3 TBSP beeswax
  • 15 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions

  1. Set a quart-size mason jar inside a small pan with 1 inch of water. Add the coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter to the jar.

  2. Melt slowly over medium heat, stirring occasionally. (You can do this in a microwave if you are crunched for time.)


  3. When melted, remove the jar from the pan and let the mixture cool until room temperature and slightly opaque. At this point, put into a medium bowl or into a blender.


  4. If in a bowl, use a hand blender or immersion blender on medium speed and start blending the oil mixture.
  5. Add the peppermint essential oil and whip until combined.
    Put in the fridge for 15 minutes and re-blend to get body butter consistency.
  6. Store in fridge for best consistency (and a cooling lotion feel), or at room temperature for up to two months.
