Peppermint & Tea Tree Foot Soak


Foot Soak Ingredients: collage of epsom salt, baking soda, peppermint tea, and essential oils

A. Epson salt

B. Baking soda

C. peppermint tea

D. Sweet almond oil (or jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil, or vitamin E oil)

E. peppermint essential oil

F. tea tree essential oil



1. Combine epsom salt & baking soda.

Measure epsom salt and baking soda into a medium mixing bowl and stir.

2. Add tea.

Cut open two bags of peppermint tea and pour the contents into the bowl. Stir well.

3. Combine oils.

Mix together the carrier oil (I’m using sweet almond oil but you can substitute it with jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil, vitamin E oil or argan oil) and the peppermint and tea tree essential oils. Stir well.

4. Add oils to salt mixture.

Pour the oils into the salt mixture and stir with a fork. Then use your hands to sift and combine everything. This is also a good opportunity to break up any clumps of epsom salt or baking soda.

5. Fill jars.

Spoon the finished foot soak into jars. It’s important to store it in airtight containers since any exposure to moisture will cause it to harden into clumps.
