Handmade Peppermint Foot Cream
Gather the Ingredients
-0.5 ounces cocoa butter
-2 ounces Shea butter
-1 ounce coconut oil
-0.25 ounces avocado oil
-1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
-1/4 teaspoon tea tree oil
-1/4 teaspoon essential oils of peppermint
-10 drops essential oils of lavender
1. Melt the butter and the oils together over low heat on the stove, or in a double boiler, until just melted.
2. Mix well, remove from heat (allow to cool a bit), and stir in the remaining ingredients.
3. Whip by using a stick blender or hand mixer. Then pour into storage container (i.e. recycled lotion jar or glass mason jar).
4. Allow to cool and harden completely for 24 hours (up to 48 hours). You may speed up this process by placing the cream in the refrigerator. Note: For a thicker cream, double the amount of cocoa butter or add 0.25 ounces of beeswax.
