Everyone loves a bit of pampering and what better way to reward tired feet after a day spent shopping than with a refreshing peppermint foot scrub?

This foot scrub takes a little bit of Christmas and turbo charges it into a luscious gift for yourself or a friend.


  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of baby oil
  • 6 candy canes, blended into a fine sand (optional)
  • A few drops of peppermint essential oil
  • A few drops of red food colouring
  • A medium-sized glass jar

In a medium-sized bowl, mix the sugar with the oil until a comfortable consistency forms. If the mixture looks too dry for your liking, put in a little more oil. If it looks a bit wet, simply add a bit more sugar. Add a few drops of peppermint essential oil and stir well to combine.


Divide the mixture in half and mix a few drops of red food colouring in one half.


Then, layer the white and the red scrub mixture into your chosen jar to create a striped effect. Press down each layer as you go to help keep the scrub in place.


Tie with a ribbon and gift to a good friend who needs a little bit of indulgence this Christmas!
