Yum! Treat your tired feet, your cracked dry feet, your overly worked feet with cooling peppermint, exfoliating salts, & a moisturising oils to soothe & refresh. Peppermint is refreshing and relieves pain. Salts exfoliate and provide magnesium while the organic oils moisturise, nourish, deodorises, & heal.
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.
Other essential oils are included for their deodorising, antibacterial, antiviral, & calming characteristics.
The salts in the scrub help to clean your feet, exfoliate, and provide a bit of magnesium and minerals.
The oils moisturise, heal, soothe inflammation, and help with nails.
One 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? 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.
The other oil included is marula oil. It is rich in vitamin E & vitamin C and hydrating fatty acids. It will help with dry, cracked skin, brittle nails, and soothe inflammation. Including this oil means the scrub is not as sticky since it thins out the castor oil.
Directions for Use:
Rub a small amount on your feet.
Rinse with warm or tepid water.
Apply foot balm if desired (like our Peppermint Sole Food.)
Put your feet up, relax, & let healing begin!
