Make the most out of that overgrown mint plant you always seem to have plenty of. Here's a mint Mojito pedicure recipe you can make at home for your own instant spa retreat. 

Mojito-sippin' weather might still be a few more months away, but we have a way to get a tropical fix even while the weather outside is still dreary. Mint Mojito pedicures are all the rage in fancy high-end salons and we found a recipe that will allow you to save a buck and give yourself the luxe treatment at home.

The best part? If you grow your own mint plants you know that this is one herb that always seems to be in abundance. If your mint plant is totally out of control because you didn't plant it in a pot and it's taking over the rest of your gardening bed, consider throwing a mini spa party and treating your friends to a little relaxing mint aromatherapy.

Mint Mojito pedicure recipe 

Soak Recipe

1/2 cup sea salt
3 slices lime
5-10 fresh mint leaves
5 drops essential lime oil

Combine ingredients and add to a basin filled with warm water.

Scrub Recipe

3 limes
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
15 fresh mint leaves (chopped)
5 drops lime essential oil

Cut limes into quarters. Using a food processor, pulse pieces to a chunky pulp. Mix limes with remaining ingredients in a bowl.

Directions:

Soak each foot in the homemade mixture for at least 5 minutes. Apply scrub to each foot, ankle and calf using circular motions to apply the mixture. Remove the scrub with a warm damp towel. Apply a minty moisture.
