After a long day standing or walking about town, your feet deserve a revitalising and nourishing rub. This foot balm is easy to make in your own kitchen - you just need to have it sitting ready for you when you get home. The peppermint essential oil has an uplifting effect which is particularly helpful for world-weary feet.

Grated beeswax


In a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the coconut oil, peppermint essential oil and beeswax together. They should liquify quite quickly.

Pour the liquid into a small container and allow it to cool and set.

Now your home made foot balm is ready to hit some feet. Gently massage your healing balm into a friend or family member's tired toes. They will be extremely appreciative, and might even be kind enough to return the favor! These would also make excellent homemade presents for people.
