Do you have a few spare candy canes lying around? It’s time to put them to good use by packaging them up into a fresh foot scrub that’s almost good enough to eat.
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.
