Yum! Treat your tired feet, your cracked dry feet, your overly worked feet with cooling peppermint, exfoliating salts, & a moisturising oil to soothe & refresh. Peppermint is refreshing and relieves pain. Salts exfoliate and provide magnesium while the organic oil moisturises, nourishes, & heals.
Why peppermint, though? Well, if you like peppermint, you'll adore our scrub. Mentha x piperita, the Latin name for peppermint, is a known anti-inflammatory. It helps with foot pain & can relieve muscular pain. It is also known to decrease itchiness. While studying at the Canterbury College of Natural Medicine we would use a few drops of peppermint on the back of our necks to boost our energy in the late afternoon. Yes, we all walked around smelling like toothpaste, but we walked with verve. Yet again, I digress.
The salts in the scrub help to clean your feet, exfoliate, and provide a bit of magnesium and minerals.
The oil used is castor oil. Eeeeew, castor oil? Really? Yup. But it's gross. Not really. It gets a bad rap as a nasty thing to take internally. So don't eat the foot scrub and you'll be sweet. But topically? Mmm, magic. Well, not real magic, just the power of plants. You'll want castor oil for your feet. Ricinus communis is rich in healing omegas, particularly omega 9. It is deeply moisturising and can help with wound healing. Its ricinoleic acid content helps to fight fungal infections like athlete's foot and bacteria such as **Staphylococcus aureus.
Directions for Use:
Rub a small amount on your feet.

Put your feet up, relax, & let healing begin!
