The soothing and energizing feeling of peppermint lotion on my tired feet after my evening shower of bath, is wonderful. A simple, but luxurious treat.
Besides the delicious aroma, peppermint essential oil is therapeutic. Calming and invigorating simultaneously. Peppermint on feet is especially helpful because it increases blood circulatiaon. It also helps alleviate foot fungus issues, like athlete’s foot that my feet have cronically. Peppermint also reduces pain, making my achy feet more comfortable.
A good hydrating lotion makes my feet feel fresh and dewy – not the hard and caloused things that they feel like by the end of a busy day.
The Body Shop makes a nice peppermint foot lotion. So does Burt’s Bees. I make my own and add lots of peppermint essential oil. Very refreshing.
