You know those days when your legs and feet are aching after a long day out and about – Or those stolen moments you grab for a soothing soak in the tub? Here is just the thing you’ll want to have ready for your bath or footbath!
This energizing Peppermint Salt Scrub would also make a wonderful gift for anyone – It is quick and easy to make and it only contains 4 ingredients! In 30 minutes or less, you could whip up a half dozen jars of this salt scrub with ingredients you probably already have around the house, all for a slight fraction of the cost to buy as many jars of pre-made scrub 🙂
And the best part is you know exactly what’s going into your salt scrub recipe, so there’s no need to worry about harsh chemicals. Peppermint oil is wonderful for the body – it has a slight numbing effect which helps reduce skin irritations and itchiness, plus it is thought to be great for relieving headaches. Research also shows that peppermint oil is effective in calming depression and anxiety. Salt is a natural exfoliant and olive oil is a great natural moisturizer for your skin.
You can easily make up a big batch and gift some to neighbors and friends, take one as a hostess gift to your holiday parties, or whatever your heart desires! Just be sure to save some to spoil yourself too 😉

I always love to make up a huge batch at once so that we have enough to both give away and at least one or two to keep, to use at home.
