DIY Peppermint Foot Scrub *Gift Idea!*
This DIY Peppermint Foot Scrub makes an awesome gift for almost anyone! It only uses three ingredients and is so easy to make!
Teachers, neighbors, friends, family—almost anyone will appreciate this homemade Peppermint Foot Scrub by Katie! It only uses 3 ingredients and is a cinch to make.
How many ingredients does this Peppermint Foot Scrub use and what ingredients are they?
What I love the most about this scrub is that it only has 3 ingredients—almond oil, peppermint essential oil and Epsom salt. That’s it!
How much did the ingredients and packaging supplies cost you? Where would you recommend moms get all their supplies from for the best prices?
The initial cost of the supplies and packaging will run you around $25-$30 but that will make multiple batches. Broken down, the average cost for one jar of scrub is about $3.50. I find the best deals for the ingredients on sites like Amazon.com and Drugstore.com. If you don’t want to buy online, you can find the Epson salt at any drugstore and the oils at a local health food store but it may cost you a little more.
How did you package/gift wrap your Peppermint Foot Scrub?
I like packaging the scrub in a half pint mason jar. It fits perfectly and gives it more of a homemade look. Then I just dress it up with things like raffia, cloth or ribbon.
How long does it take to make it? Do you make it in big batches?
It takes about 5 minutes to make a batch and I make it one batch at a time. I tried making a big batch once and half of the jars were really oily and the other half barely smelled like peppermint at all. It was a hot mess. So I definitely recommend making one, maybe two max, at a time.
This is such a thoughtful gift! Who do you think will appreciate this gift most?
Thank you! Teachers LOVE this gift. They appreciate a gift that lets them pamper themselves (which they deserve), and they love homemade gifts. Kids can help with this one too which makes it even more special.
