CocoPeppermint Foot Butter
An amazing blend of coconut oil, shea butter and peppermint essential oil to revitalize tired feet. Shea Butter is available at most natural foods stores. We like Everyday Shea by Alaffia.
2 Tbsp Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil
5 Tbsp Shea Butter
40 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- 1. In a double boiler over low heat, gently warm the coconut oil and shea butter. Be careful not to melt the oil and butter – heat just enough to blend easily. Once incorporated, transfer the oil and butter mixture to a bowl.
- Using an electric mixer, blend the coconut oil and butter on low to medium speed until well incorporated, 1-2 minutes. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and avoid having any clumps in the final product.
- Increase the speed to medium for several minutes until the mixture is thick and buttery. Continue to incorporate the ingredients by scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
- Add the essential oil and blend to incorporate. The whole mixing process should take 5 to 6 minutes.
Yields 4oz. Transfer to a container like a wide-mouth canning jar for easy scooping. The peppermint oil gives a wonderful, tingling sensation for tired feet. You can also substitute lavender essential oil for a calming effect.
