Refreshing Foot Scrub
Who doesn’t love a foot massage? A scrub is the best way to give yourself a good one, according to April Amstutz, associate spa director at Canyon Ranch spa in Tucson, Arizona. The peppermint oil in our Refreshing Foot Scrub decreases muscle spasms.
1 cup sugar
2-4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2–3 drops peppermint essential oil
Put sugar in a jar or container with a lid. Stir in enough olive oil for desired “scrub” consistency and add peppermint oil. Massage all over feet while in the tub or shower. (Be careful of a slippery floor!)
Cut out the peppermint oil and add 10 drops vanilla essential oil and 2 Tbsp. coconut oil instead to make this a relaxing and moisturizing body scrub.
